Atari ET Game T-shirt

E.T. The Video Game

This is widely regarded as one of the worst video games ever made and it was also one of the biggest commercial failures in the history of video gaming, causing heavy financial losses for Atari. 

This T-shirt features the E.T game character and would be great fun to wear at a retro gaming event.

Out Run

This 3D racing game by Sega was hugely successful when released into the arcades during 1986 and became the best-selling game of the year. I can still remember playing the game at the Motorway service stations during the summer holidays.

Pong

Released into the arcades by Atari in 1972, Pong was the first commercially successful video game, and helped to launch the home video games market. There were numerous Pong games consoles created, too. Despite it's simplicity, here we are 44 years later and the game is still enjoyed by gamers, although mainly as an app.

Q*bert

This quirky-looking, trumpet-nosed character first hit the arcades in 1982. The game was pretty unique at the time, featuring isometric graphics that gave a pseudo-3D look. It was quickly ported to 8-bit home computers, and I certainly remember playing this one on my Atari 800XL, and it was all too easy to jump the wrong way.

Sega

If you yearn for the days when you played on your Megadrive, then the next best thing is a T-shirt. There are many great designs available for both men and women.

Star Raiders


This classic space combat game was originally released on cartridge for the Atari 400/800 home computers in 1979, and eventually made it onto the Atari 2600 console in 1982 and then the ST models. At the time, the game was visually stunning and exciting to play.

Street Fighter II: The World Warrior

This fantastic sequel from 1991 was superior to the original game in many ways and became much more popular. It was unique in that it allowed the player to choose a character, which gave more varied matches each character had a different fighting style.

The Last Ninja T-shirt

The Last Ninja

This action martial-arts game was originally released for the C64 back in 1987, before being ported to other systems. A very official-looking T-shirt which features the design from the cover art of the game box. Hoodies also available.
