Top 5 coolest video game shirts
We Know (Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim) from RedBubble
Skyrim has a lot of potential for good looking apparel, including the very clean dragon logo and the “Arrow to the Knee” meme. This one, however, is like a secret handshake between Skyrim lovers. The design has a great deal of mystery to it (just like the Dark Brotherhood) to those not in the know, which makes it that much more special when you get what it’s about.
Assassins’s Creed Hoodie (Assassin’s Creed) from Elegy Clothing
This (apparently) one-of-a-kind custom-made Assassin’s Creed hoodie looks like the perfect middle ground between fashion and cosplay. If you look closely, it’s made to look like the one worn by Desmond Miles, but the white and red color scheme is the trademark of Altair and Ezio Auditore. Again, this will just look like a white and red hoodie with a sleek obscure logo to those not familiar with Assassin’s Creed, but fans of the franchise will definitely notice it. It’s a shame that something like this hasn’t been mass produced, or very hard to find if it was. This particular one was sold on December 26th.
Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary (Legend of Zelda) from King of Games
This Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary tee is just the thing for anyone who’s not afraid to show off their love for the franchise which turned 25 in 2011, even though the shirt won’t be available until May 2012. The embroidered tri-force logo with Link’s essential items feels anything but cheap, as evidenced by the 5500 yen (roughly $71) price tag. Still, this is more than just a t-shirt, it’s a wearable memorial.
8-bit Imagination (Battle City) by ThinkGeek
Mario has always been the personification of retro gaming to the point of being cliche. After all, it’s not like Super Mario was our only vice back in the day. Battle City is another NES classic that has been re-imagined countless times and this shirt conveys the message of what 8-bit gaming was like perfectly. Strictly for the hardcore retro.
Coexiist (consoles) by ThinkGeek
If you think video game shirts are just for fanboys, think again. Those of us who think our fellow gamers care too much about what console is the best will love the message on this shirt and the medium as well. Yes, using letters from different logos has been done before, but here it actually has a point.
