Sometimes, we love games a lot. So much so that we want to wear our hearts for these games on our sleeves figuratively and literally, and so merchandise from these games is a big deal. From clothes to mugs, figures and cuddly toys and beyond, there’s a lot of gaming trinkets out there, getting a gift for the gamers in your life (or indeed, yourself) doesn’t have to be restricted to something as predictable as just the game. Here’s our pick of our favourite games merchandise deals from across many shops from a range of top games franchises.
