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...

I lol'ed at the achievement :D

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:

Wonderkarpyeah. some people are salty over it. but that wiki article was filled with vitriol01/28/2015 - 12:06pm
prh99Yeah, I saw people complaining about that, claiming Wales was a hypocrite cause he supposedly removed some feminist editors.01/28/2015 - 11:57am

Wonderkarpone thing that surprised me...theres a lot of expanded universe books for star wars, star trek, alien, even videogames like resident evil....why not ghostbusters? There's a comic series and cartoon but thats it01/28/2015 - 11:37am
prh99Well it is Hollywood, remakes are the one thing they can be relied on for.01/28/2015 - 11:34am
E. Zachary KnightSo you want a sequel and not a reboot. Fair enough. I think either could work as you have said yourself.01/28/2015 - 11:32am
Wonderkarpotherwise, let it lie. Next thing you know they'll remake/reboot Alien or Godfather01/28/2015 - 11:28am
Wonderkarpand Ghostbusters is my favorite movie and its aged well. it doesnt need a remake. Just like Psycho didnt need one. If they threw in Dan Aykroyd, kept the original tech, and acknowledged the old films without crappy easter eggs, I'd be on board.01/28/2015 - 11:27am
WonderkarpI dont like Reboots/Remakes. For every Batman begins or Invasion of the Body Snatchers, there's a million Robocops, King Kongs, Star Treks, Amazing Spidermans, Taxis, Clash of teh titans, planet of the apes, footloose.01/28/2015 - 11:26am
prh99Wonderkarp, what more do you need? It's been ~26 years, and Harold Ramis died last year. If they can make something decent, who cares?01/28/2015 - 11:19am
prh99I wonder if they will fall into the trap of making those items more scarce in game in order to get people to pay.01/28/2015 - 11:14am
Wonderkarpso its not even ghostbusters then. just in name and concept only. you could call it ghost chasers or spook snatchers01/28/2015 - 11:09am
Andrew EisenKarp - According to the creative team, the new Ghostbusters is a new story, not a gender swapped rehash.01/28/2015 - 10:36am
WonderkarpMan. Resident Evil has fallen hard. I was a Huge fan in the late 90s. I think its time for a reboot. I was playing the hd remaster of the gamecube remake and the dialogue still sucks. Chris asking Rachel if she knows how to use a gun. SHE'S A COP!!01/28/2015 - 10:33am
E. Zachary KnightThe whole point of early Resident Evil games was to beat the game using only those weapons and ammo you could scavenge and use save files sparingly.01/28/2015 - 10:08am
E. Zachary KnightDoesn't the ability to buy health and weapons defeat the whole point of survival horror games?01/28/2015 - 10:07am

Wonderkarpgoogle fiber coming to atlanta georgia. I'm gonna try to get a transfer to atlanta just to get google fiber. lol01/28/2015 - 9:13am
Wonderkarpotherwise Its just going to feel like another unnecessary reboot to me01/28/2015 - 9:09am
Wonderkarpmy god, thats an awesome ghostbusters cast. why couldnt it just be a sequal and not a reboot though!? I hate Reboots and I'd rather have a new story with new characters than a gender swapped rehash. Throw in Dan Aykroyd to link the two franchises.01/28/2015 - 9:08am
