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:
