Ok so maybe I’m just a big fat nerd, but I absolutely love geek t-shirt designs.
The world of gaming has come a hellova long way in the past 20 years and I am very happy to have lived through the pioneering era of video games.
All you younger Springleapers don’t know how lucky you are to have such epic gaming systems at your finger tips.
I think the first video games I ever played were titles like Space Invaders and Pong, heck I even played a text based adventure called Zork….that’s right, there wasn’t even any graphics…just text.
Since the 70’s and 80’s video games have grown exponentially and the culture behind games and geek culture has become a multi-million dollar industry.
The fact of the matter is that there are millions of gaming geeks worldwide who spend hours of their day slogging away at their keyboards/game pads in order to level up.
The next obvious step for something as huge as the world of video gaming, is making sure that commercially it becomes an avenue for BIG BUCKS.
Yes, many people moan about the myriad of gaming t-shirts and paraphernalia that has come out for video games and that the industry has sold its own micro chipped soul.
As far as I’m concerned if I can get my hands on a super cool geek t-shirt that has a character I really dig, or some obscure video game comment that only a few faithful gamers will understand, then I will most certainly buy one.
Geek t-shirts can be found all over the net these days.
Springleap.com has quite a few designs that can be classified as geek t-shirts, however there is only one site that I frequent to look for groovy gaming t-shirts…and that is J!NX.
J!NX sells clothing that adheres to the tastes of pretty much anybody that has a love for games or RPG’s (role playing games), such as Dungeons & Dragons and Call of Cthulu.
Well pretty much J!NX sells anything that falls under the extreme sub-culture groups, which includes various material from internet phenomenon’s.
Honestly you have to visit J!NX to fully understand the amount of geek t-shirts that are out there.
Springleap.com is however nipping at the heels of some of these mega internet groups with small contributions to geekdom that seem to be popping up on the competition more and more frequently.
TokyoGoGo is a dude who has stepped out most recently with a TRUE geek t-shirt design…and won!
His geeky yet ultra universal Crop Pixels design has done for geek design on Springleap, what syrup has done for waffles .
It doesn’t stop there though. Take a look at classics such as DustyRich’s stunning Video Games Rock and Dave Duartes mega geek t-shirt entitled Amazing Marketing Machine.
Springleap.com has a huge selection of designs that I would consider geeky….maybe not video game style, but certainly it has characters that are iconic in the geek world, one such example being good ol’ Godzilla and the Sasquatch.
It seems over our relatively short existence Springleapers have come up with quite a horde of geek t-shirts, which really makes my little geek heart cry tears of liquid metal joy.
Don’t stop now Springleapers, let’s see more geek t-shirt designs flying through in the next compo.
We love em, you seem to love em…heck the whole world is going geek, so SEND EM THROUGH 😀
