13 Father’s Day Cards For Your Favorite Video Game Dads

Or least-favorite, depending on your threshold for bad parenting.

BestDad

I got the gaming bug from my dad, who used to sit three-year-old me on his lap while he played Myst and Doom – which, in hindsight, may not have been the best plan, but hey. So what better way to celebrate Father’s Day than with a collection of cards (lovingly made by myself and my fellow former Weekend Editor, Becky Chambers) dedicated to our fave, most-devoted in-game dads?

If we missed the game dad of your choice, let us know in the comments – or make your own super-high-quality cards to rival ours!
