With the holidays almost upon us, it’s time to start thinking about horrendous festive knitwear to adorn our fleshy shells with. Because it’s not Christmas until everybody’s wearing a gaudy jumper.
We’ve rounded up some of our favourite gaming-themed Christmas jumpers right here. We’ll be wearing one of these come Christmas day, and we hope you will be too.
(And psst, if you fancy buying one, using one of our included affiliate links will net GameSpew a tiny cut of your sale. It won’t cost you anything extra, but the few pennies we’ll get will go a long way into helping the site’s running costs. Consider it a little Christmas gift from you to us – and we’ll be forever grateful.)
Super Mario Christmas Jumper
Happy Holidays, says Mario, Luigi and… Bowser? Yep, even evil Bowser feels like getting into the festive spirit, putting his differences aside to appear on this ultra-gaudy but ultra-festive Christmas jumper with his sworn enemies Mario and Luigi. If you’re a Mario fan, why would you not want to wear this? It’s a top-notch gaming-themed Christmas jumper.
Xbox Achievement Unlocked Christmas Jumper
This Xbox Christmas jumper achieves numerous things. It successfully allows you to partake in the festive tradition of wearing an ugly jumper – and even acknowledges the fact it’s ugly with popping up an achievement right on your chest. It also lets people know you enjoy unlocking Xbox achievements. We all do. There’s no shame in it. Combined, you’ve got a winner of a sweater that we’re slightly annoyed we can’t really wear all year around.
PlayStation Christmas Jumper
Fear not, PlayStation fans – there’s a gaming-themed Christmas jumper for you, too. Despite being listed as an ‘ugly Christmas sweater’, we don’t think this one is that ugly at all. We love the embroidered PlayStation symbols, falling like snow. The perfect Christmassy scene, emblazoned across your torso.
‘I Paused My Game to Be Here’ Christmas Jumper
Maybe you don’t want to show any particular allegiance to a game or a format. Maybe you just want people to know that, yes, you’re feeling festive, but you’re also a gamer. And maybe you’re a little bit narked at the fact you’ve had to drag yourself away from your game to join in whatever festive gathering you may be at. This is the Christmas jumper for you.
Street Fighter Ken Vs. Ryu Christmas Jumper
A Happy Hadouken to you this festive season if you’re clad in this Street Fighter Ken Vs. Ryu Jumper. A lovely burgundy colour, you can see the two infamous fighters throwing hands. Oh, and there’s a big snowflake in the middle, just in case there was any confusion that this is in fact a Christmas jumper.
