As soon as games launch, he or she's got 'em. This gamer doesn't just play games, this gamer collects them. Their back catalogue is more than a best-of or a bunch of favorites, it's a compendium—a library.
So what do you get the gamer who has all the games?
Mario from the Yoshi series gets immortalized as a plush toy. Think Mario is cute? What about Baby Mario? A Baby Mario plush toy that can be cuddled and snuggled? *squeal*
($12.90 for Mario—ditto for Baby Luigi and Baby Peach.)
Ack! Purveyor of fine t-shirts, Meat Bun, is offering this anatomically correct drawing of the universe's most frightening space parasite. This is the stuff of nightmares—and great t-shirts.
($24 at Meat Bun.)
One of gaming's most iconic characters, this 5-inch, poseable Mega-Man, is ready for bookshelves and desktops. Some assembly is required, and the model comes alternate parts, such as different faces and hands.
This may look like a regular hoodie, but it's not. It's a reversible Assassin's Creed hoodie. Note that it doesn't have pockets, because Assassin's Creed doesn't need not stinkin' pockets.
It does need neck beard. Lots and lots of neck beard.
Nero's Red Queen blade brought to life, and each piece has its own serial number. At 42 inches long, with stainless steel blade, the grip is wrapped in leather, and it's the closest one can get to wielding the weapon—without it bursting to flames.
There are only 1,500 of these slated to be made. Surely, your special someone deserves at least one of them. The figure is from the "Master Arts" line of Twilight Princess statues. Hand-numbered, the piece is 17-inches, hand-finished, and hand-painted.
Drinking and driving? Bad, very bad. Drinking and arcade gaming? Good, very good. This set-up includes a full HD projector, 200 racing and arcade games, PC and PS3 connectivity, and in-dash beer tap. It can hold 5 gallon or one half barrel keg. I can drink to that!
("Only $5995 plus S&H".)
