The best and worst game promo T-shirts

Amongst the games, press releases and bulging envelopes of cash curiously marked '9/10, yeah?' that we receive from publishers each day we also get clothing. Mainly T-shirts of random ill-fitting sizes. And they fall into three categories: Outdoors, Indoors, and Bin.

Outdoors ones don't have massive logos that scream 'I AM A SEXLESS NERD' and to the layman could potentially be a unique tee designed by a Japanese artist. Indoors means it has a logo but provides a snug fit and therefore become's your go-to tee when painting or lounging about the house ill. And Bin is self-explanatory.

Sadly, most of these beauties never make it to public consumption, so in that respect we’re kind of like catwalk models; except marginally better looking. So feast your eyes on this collection of gaming garments that we harvested from our very own wardrobes. Think you’ve got better examples? Then post a link to a pic in the comments below. Onwards...  

The logo is so tiny, only those with their face in your chest will see it


Combine with an unzipped jacket to hide the GTA logo and appear uber-cool

Quote is reference to every pundits view on footballing giant, Peter Crouch

It may be thinner than wet tissue but the stylish WipEout vehicle is geek-chic

  A rare purple number that you can almost guarantee no-one will recognise

We'd wear a top with Pip-Boy on even if he was looming large in the middle 

Worship the Super Monkey. Worship this Super T-shirt

    That's complete bull about Haze. Yeah, it had its faults, but in no way isn't it logical how something so tiny led to such a huge fall. At least they were trying to do something other than Timesplitters, but now that Crytek has taken over, they'll probably just bail. Both Free Radical shirts are bitchin'. I'd take 'em both.

    I managed to get these Incredible Crisis shirts from the U.S publisher. My media outlet (video game TV show) didn't have the strictest policy about who requested what from game companies, so I kept these:

  • Oxfordcomma4 - March 22, 2009 6:30 p.m.

    Kinda liked the haze one... you could play it off as an Above the Influence shirt...

    why did you judge some by the t-shirt size? it doesn't matter if it's the only size they're available in, it doesn't make much sense you should judge all of them by t-shirt colour and logo
