The Best Scarves in Gaming

   0


Letís face it: scarves make anything cool. Case in point, Fred from Scooby Doo. Do you think he became the leader of the gang because of his brains? Hell no. Itís because of that devilishly stylish scarf he wears. This doesnít just apply to TV and movies. Proper scarf use can make or break a videogame characterís ability to resonate with an increasingly demanding audience. Come with me on a magical journey as we explore the best scarves in gaming!

Note: These are in no particular order.

Pikachuís Red Scarf



Pikachuís pretty cute, right? Right. You know whatís even cuter? Pikachu in a little red bandana neck thing! I mean look at himóhe looks like a little explorer! If it wasnít for the adorable line of scarves and bow ties the Pokťmon wear in the Mystery Dungeon games they wouldnít nearly get the same amount of critical acclaim.

Journeyís Magical Flying Scarf



Iíve written about Journey before, but not about the best partóthe scarves! Part neckwear, part tail, part magical source of flight power, Journeyís scarf deserves to be part of this list. Not only does it keep my characterís neck (does it even have one?) protected in the desert sun, but it also keeps them warm as they climbed up that icy mountain at the end of the game. And damned if they didnít look mighty fine doiní it too! Plus you could find fabric scraps that made your scarf longer, and everyone whoís keyed into the scarf world knows, longer = better.

Nathan Drakeís Scarf



Technically itís a keffiyeh, but he wears it around his neck, so it qualifies. Whatís more important anyway? Wrapping it around your head when youíre in the desert to keep the sun and dust off your entire face or keeping it around your neck as a stylish accessory? I think we all know the answer to that one.

Strider Hiryuís Scarf



Ninjas and scarves go together like tequila and regret. Not only does Strider avoid that monochromatic thing most ninjas gravitate toward, his scarf also doubles as a mask. Plus that deep crimson color probably works really well to hide any bloodstains. Fashionable and practicalóitís the ninja way.

Proto Manís Scarf



Robots are cool. As has been established by the previous entries and LOGIC, scarves are cool. Put them together you getÖI dunno. 2x cool or something. Anyway, Proto Manís a badass, and his flowing yellow scarf only complements his red and grey color scheme and adds to his badassittude. Would he still be cool without it? Yeah. But as cool? Thatís a definite hell no.

Hope Estheimís Scarf



A rare miss for a piece of neckwear that normally has the power to make any character cooler. Even with his dapper blue scarf, Hopeís still an insufferable character. The less said about him and his stupid quest for vengeance the better. Actually, the less said about Final Fantasy XIII in general the better.

There you have it--a sampling of gaming's best neckwear! Next time you're playing a lackluster game, just imagine how much better it would be if your character was wearing a scarf.

Hey Dtoid, I'm TriplZer0.



I'm a science fiction, fantasy, and speculative fiction writer by trade, but aside from writing, video games are my biggest passion. I also write over at Gamer Limit.

The first console my brothers and I ever got was an SNES for Christmas one year. Since then, we've owned an N64, Playstation, PS2, and an Xbox 360. I got a Gameboy Color one year for Christmas, but my brothers are more into handheld gaming than me. Every time they upgrade to the latest system I get their hand-me-downs. That's how I obtained my GBA and my two DS's. Handheld gaming for some reason doesn't interest me even though I know there are great games out there. The first console I've ever been the exclusive owner of is my PS3. The first games I ever played were Super Mario World, F-Zero, 7th Saga (which I've written about), and Out of This World.

My favorite genres are RPGs (Western or Japanese), FPS, action/adventure, and RTS (even though I suck at them).
