Buying a Christmas gift for gamers can be somewhat of a tough proposition. "But Nash, why not buy them games?" Sounds logical right? WRONG! That’s because December rarely has any good releases to speak off and do you honestly think you can gift them something they don’t already own?
But there is one thing gamers cherish a lot besides their prized PCs and consoles. Cool T-shirts! It’s an awesome way of boasting to other like-minded geeks while projecting your personality through witty ways most humans would not understand. Plus it’s the perfect way of covering up that not so chiseled body in style.
Keeping that in mind here are ten tees you could gift someone who’s not just a gamer but a geek as well. All the mentioned t-shirts are available on JINX.com for $10 (shipping not included).
Afro Samurai Tee
Do you know what’s cooler than a badass, sword wielding Samurai? A badass sword wielding, marijuana smoking Samurai voice by Samuel L Jackson. If you enjoy the anime or the highly underrated spin-off game this tee has got your name on it. Well actually it doesn’t but you get the drift right?
Are you a control freak? Is your mind fascinated by shiny buttons, D pads, shoulder buttons, joysticks and lots more? If so, this tee could keep you entertained for hours on end.
I hate Farmville and what better way to proclaim my hate for that abomination than wear it proudly. That’s right dude; I don’t care about your farm or your animals.
Love first person shooters? Proclaim your love for that genre with this sweet yet eerie tee that depicts your un-dead squad that’s about to kick some serious ass.
Strong feminine figures have always appealed to gamers as was evident with the success of the Tomb Raider series. While we patiently wait for Ms. Croft’s return, sink your teeth into this sexy tee featuring a shotgun wielding chick who may be outnumbered but not outgunned.
Since Rockstar never really pimps their games via official merchandise, third parties have taken it upon themselves to cater to the needs of fans. Even though this tee doesn’t quite say GTA IV, the similarities are undeniable.
Things to come
This tee practically paints a scenario that would be familiar to all FPS buffs. Tons of ammo followed by an insane boss fight where you’re struggling to hit the quick save button before it’s too late. Yeah, we’ve all been there.
This one’s going out to all the old school gamers from the hood who’ve cut their teeth to games made by Shigeru Miyamoto, Lord British, John Carmack, and Sid Meier. Of course if you don’t listen to hip-hop, the references will be lost.
You squint your eye, peer through your scope and take aim at the unnamed patrol guard unaware of your presence. You squeeze the trigger, his head explodes, you move on. You mean you didn’t get that from this tee?
Z-Day ($17.99 - $20.99)
This is only t-shirt on the list that’s not on sale chosen purely due to its awesome potential of saving your life during a zombie apocalypse.
