T-shirt of the day: Mount Playmore

Mount Playmore

Busted Tees recently unveiled a clever Nintendo-themed Mount Rushmore t-shirt for their online catalog that features Mario, Donkey Kong, Samus, and Link immortalized in stone (or in cloth and print to be more exact). The design itself is sure to make many (including myself) ponder, “If there was a Mount Rushmore for video game characters or designers, what four would grace it?” This question alone has been asked many times before, but nonetheless it’s neat to discuss.

When it comes to video game designers or visionaries, the four that immediately  pop into my head include legends like Shigeru Miyamoto, Will Wright, Ralph Baer, and Tim Schafer. Each has left a lasting impression on the gaming community and all are recognizable to a hardcore audience, young or old.

Now, I ask you this: If you were to construct a Mount Rushmore for video games, would you use famous characters or their well-known creators? Also, just for more fun, which character or creator would be the George Washington or Teddy Roosevelt equivalent? Let us know in the comments below!

[Writer’s Note]: Hello! My name is Harrison, and I’m the newest member of the Infendo team. I also like this thing you call “Nintendo.” I heard it’s pretty rad. Anyway, I recently graduated from the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism (Go Tigers!) with a degree in magazine journalism, and I have aspirations to land a career in the industry someday. I hope to provide you all with the best up-to-date Nintendo news that you can enjoy. You can also follow me on Twitter at @hmilfeld. Happy gaming!

    Mario, Sonic, Pac-man, and Link. So many other faces could be argued over, but Mario cannot be disputed.

    Mario is equivalent to G.W., but everyone else can be a toss-up.

    While that is an absolutely beautiful design, I’m not sure that it makes an amazing tee. Might be a little bit too nerdy, coming from the guy who wears his Catherine shirt in public.

    G.W. better not be Bush 2.

    Welcome aboard, Harrison!

    I’d like to see it this way:

    Mario (George Washington)
    Sonic (Thomas Jefferson)
    Solid Snake (Teddy Roosevelt)
    Professor Layton (Abraham Lincoln)

    That’d be somethin’! And Bush 2 on the dollar bill? That alone would improve the value of our currency.

    My real cast would look something like this:
    Shigeru Miyamoto
    Nolan Bushnel
    Will Wright
    John Carmack

    For actual characters it would be pretty standard fair save one:
    Mario
    PAC-man
    Sonic
    Pikachu
