Holiday Shopping: 10 Best Game Shirts

November 29, 2008 -

With the t-shirt serving as the centerpiece of many a gamer's wardrobe, The Examiner's Carol Orsini pens a fun article listing her choices for the top 10 gaming shirts for the holidays.

With the holidays right around the corner, nothing says 'I love you' to that special button-masher in your life more than the gift of garb. As one fanatical gamer to another, these are the absolute best t-shirts that loudly proclaim; 'Yes. I play games.' ...And as an incentive to you non-gamers, buying your gamer a shirt rather than a game equals more time they spend with you wearing it and less time that they're glued to the TV.

Check it out, and feel free to link to your own favorites.

Re: Holiday Shopping: 10 Best Game Shirts

I have quite a few gaming shirts, most of which I wear.

Currently my favorite one,surprisingly, is my Mario Bros. 3 hoodie.  Its a brown shirt with mario on the front in his Tanooki suit, but on the hood of the hoodie there are 2 ears.  I just got it today (50 freakin bucks but i golt 15% off for frequent shopping so 42 in all).
My other fav is a long sleeved shirt with a giant mushroom on the front.  perfect for work since I tend to go in a freezer often.

The thread that brings me back, something of value.  I now have presents to buy, and they will be funny.

Too bad you didn't go to best buy; Simpsons seasons 1-10 for only 15 dollars a piece, plus house and the office and other, less important shows. Also, bought live free or die hard for 5 dollars. 

Of course, today I also bought some games at Gamestop, and preordered PERSONA 4 (that's right, I play it).

Now I just have to beat 3...

Re: Holiday Shopping: 10 Best Game Shirts

Yes, JINX! Always making those HILARIOUS shirts for the 12 year old "lol g33k" in your life.

Re: Holiday Shopping: 10 Best Game Shirts

Not as creative as some of these, but I have a t-shirt that says "Aggro" on the front.

I also have a D&D reference shirt that says, "Don't make me roll initiative!"

Re: Holiday Shopping: 10 Best Game Shirts

You know I really want that katamari shirt that says 'this is how I roll' sadly I don't think they're making any anymore.

And forgive me for not playing bioshock or portal which make up four entries on the list (I haven't got the funds to try them just yet).

Re: Holiday Shopping: 10 Best Game Shirts

Ive bought gamer shirts from thinkgeek, splitreason and zazzle and I love them all!

Ago. Perceptum. Teneo.

Re: Holiday Shopping: 10 Best Game Shirts

Any non-gamer who buys a gamer a gaming tee shirt is probably a bigger geek than the gamer.  I mean really, if we have to get clothing, can't we have something a bit more stylish than a tee shirt?

Re: Holiday Shopping: 10 Best Game Shirts

That list is fine, but the "original" 10 best gaming t-shirts list by T-Critic is still better:

MattsworknameAndrew: Im not sure Im the one to be explainging this really, Im not sure im articulating it right07/31/2015 - 9:20pm
Big PermI got to around 30 in tera before giving up. I liked my sorc, but I need better motivation to grind07/31/2015 - 9:14pm
Andrew EisenAh TERA. I made a video about TERA censorship. One of my more popular ones. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AO26h9etTbw07/31/2015 - 8:52pm
Goth_SkunkI've been playing TERA all day. Just took a break to barbecue some chicken. :3 And Andrew: I'm using Cabal to suggest a group of people secretly united in some private views or interests within a community.07/31/2015 - 8:50pm
Andrew EisenI'd love to but I'm at work. But once I get home... I'm going to work out for a while. But after THAT... I'm going to shower. Then eat. Then prep tomorrow's meals. And THEN play video games! YEAH!!!07/31/2015 - 8:38pm
Big Permlol, ya'll are still going back and forth? Take a break and play some video games07/31/2015 - 8:37pm
Andrew EisenGoth - Are you using "cabal" to describe a group of writers or to suggest they all worked together in secret to publish those articles?07/31/2015 - 8:30pm
Andrew EisenMatt - That doesn't disprove the general premise of the various articles as that's not what they're about. Unless, again, he's talking about a different batch of articles.07/31/2015 - 8:28pm
Goth_SkunkThe difference between one voice being offensive and a cabal being offensive.07/31/2015 - 8:22pm
MechaCrashFunny how "you're offended, so what" flips into "we're offended, retract everything and apologize."07/31/2015 - 8:18pm
MattsworknameIts not the only argument he points out ,its just one of them07/31/2015 - 8:06pm
Mattsworknameidea that Gamers as the articel puts it, the "White male sterotype are dead, essentially was compltely false07/31/2015 - 8:03pm
MattsworknameThe video actually shows that the shaw study actually disproves the Premise of the artices by showing that the "Gamer" dentity, has no actual meaning to thsoe who use it other then "I play games", its not connected to race, gender, or orientation. So the07/31/2015 - 8:01pm
Andrew EisenWith the exception of a brief mention in Golding's Tumbr post. Even so, he's talking about gamer identity, not desire for diversity in gaming.07/31/2015 - 7:50pm
Andrew EisenI'm not calling his examination of the Shaw study into question. I haven't read the study nor seen his video. All I'm saying is that it has nothing to do with the Gamers Are Dead articles I've been referencing for the last year.07/31/2015 - 7:49pm
MattsworknameSome times sargon just goes off on tangents but in this case he was pretty direct and went through teh research in detail, did the whole first video about the shaw study itself07/31/2015 - 7:45pm
Andrew EisenWell, unless it's disingenuous twaddle but I like to give people the benefit of the doubt.07/31/2015 - 7:42pm
Andrew EisenGotta be. The argument you describe makes no sense otherwise.07/31/2015 - 7:40pm
MattsworknameThat is a possibility, they looked like offical articles but its possible they are different from the articles you mentoin07/31/2015 - 7:28pm
Andrew EisenNot unless he's referring to a completely different set of Gamers Are Dead articles.07/31/2015 - 7:19pm
