When we carve a pumpkin, we manage to get about as fancy as a Jack-o-lantern face.

Two triangles for eyes and a big, wide smile. It’s not that difficult. But some folk manage to get way more technical with their autumn fruits β€” we’re talking detailed faces, fancy scene recreations and, most impressively, video game characters.

Since it’s Halloween, we’ve been trawling Twitter to find some of the best video game-themed pumpkins from these year and years past. Talented pumpkin-carvers, we salute you.

Happy Halloween, everyone!
