20 Best Gifts For Gamers

Christmas is almost here and the nights are getting longer, darker and colder which obviously means more time to stay at home and game – who wants to go outside in that weather right?

I spend a LOT of my free time gaming, especially the likes of Zelda, Doom, Skyrim & Dark Souls. I’m also re-visiting “The Last of Us” ahead of the 2nd game being released next year….I cannot WAIT for that!

Here at EMP our gaming range is constantly growing and we have some absolutely awesome merchandise for all types of players. Here are some of my personal highlights, maybe it’ll help you with ideas for Christmas presents:

1. Zelda – Drink this:

I’ll start with this fantastic Link mug purely because I recently bought one and I love it. Taken from the NES Classic “The Legend of Zelda” it will make any Zelda fan happy.

2. V: Skyrim – Dragonborn:

Skyrim is hands down one of the BEST games ever made. It’s now 8 years old and I still love it as much now as I did when it was released. I recently restarted it with the aim to complete everything that there is to do. Now I don’t know if that’s possible to do in a lifetime, apparently it is but wish me luck anyway please, thanks.

3. Dark Souls – Sif, Great Grey Wolf:

PRAISE THE SUN! Dark Souls is easily my favourite game of all time, I had it on PS3, bought the remaster on PS4 and then also bought the Switch port so I can play it on the go. If I could only play 1 game for the rest of my life it would be this game….seriously, I can’t express enough how much I love this game. This T-shirt is one of my favourites in my wardrobe, Sif’s story is a sad one, we love her.

4. Doom – Classic Boxart:

Hailed as one of the greatest games of all time and rightfully so, this classic Boxart Doom t-shirt is simply a must have. Doomguy kicks major ass, wear it with pride. Doom Eternal cannot get here fast enough!

5. The Witcher – School Of The Wolf:

One of the most popular RPGS of recent times and a game I have yet to complete but I am getting there. I also purchased this great t-shirt recently and I’m sure that any Witcher player will like it as much as I do. Also, how awesome does the upcoming series look!!!! CANT WAIT!

12. Game Boy – Wall Clock 

Nintendo‘s Game boy is truly iconic. Now you can get a wall clock version of it!

13. Resident Evil – Raccoon Police Department T-shirt:

Great stocking fillers for fans of this brilliant series. I bought the remastered Resident Evil 2 at the start of year, I’ve still yet to complete it, I am truly awful at that game. It’s brilliant but I think it hates me.

14. Bloodborne – Box art T-Shirt:

If Dark Souls didn’t exist then this would be my favourite game of all time. But it does (thankfully) so it isn’t BUT it’s a very close call. Anyways, Bloodborne is a masterpiece with huge replay value. Hunters will want to own this t-shirt….I know that I do.
