You can hardly find a more wholesome collection of games than Nintendo’s first-party franchises like Mario and Zelda. Dressing up as Princess Peach, Link, or other characters from the Mushroom Kingdom and beyond is good fun for people of all ages.

Star Wars

Star Wars and video games have gone hand-in-hand practically since George Lucas first conceived of the sci-fi franchise. And with games like Star Wars Battlefront II and Respawn’s upcoming Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, the relationship isn’t likely to slow down anytime soon. Why not celebrate your fandom for the sci-fi franchise this Halloween by dressing up as your favorite character from the films?

Batman

The Dark Knight has a long history in video games dating all the way back to the pre-NES days. More recently, Rocksteady’s Arkham series revitalized superhero video games in a big way, and Telltale’s Batman adventure games offered a fresh take on the heroes and villains of Gotham. This Halloween, you can dress as your favorite character from DC’s beloved comic property.
