Christmas is one of those special times of year. It brings families together, most people tend to be in high spirits, and there is a possibility that you will be bombarded with gifts. Children and grown-ups alike are all waiting for Santa to drop off some awesome new games or maybe even a shiny new video game console for some holiday enjoyment. But, wouldn’t it be even better if that Santa just so happened to be one of your favorite video game characters?
Not every single character could possibly make the perfect Santa Claus but there are some who would be just perfect. Whether it’s in attitude or form there are video game characters that are just made for this role. With that being said, how about we take a look at five well suited Santa candidates.
If you’re being completely honest with yourself, then you probably knew deep down in your heart that Mario of Super Mario fame was definitely going to make this list. It is no secret that he can pull of wearing red since his iconic hat and shirt that he’s been wearing for decades are already primed for the role. And although it isn’t a necessity, he has the perfect form factor to be the jolly old Santa Claus you’ve come to know and love.
Of course Mario isn’t only a Santa candidate because of his look, it’s his abilities that make him a standout. As most of you already know, Santa Claus flies around in his sleigh and then climbs down your chimney in order to leave some goodies in your stockings and under your tree. This world famous plumber has tons of practice squeezing through pipes so chimneys should be no problem. Also imagine, just for a moment, that instead of reindeer pulling the sleigh you had a group of Yoshis prancing through the sky.
It’s almost as if the folks at Nintendo have been prepping their mascot for Santa Claus candidacy all these years.
