It may hit all the right Nintendo nostalgia notes, but I just am not into tattoo-esque shirts. If I want a tattoo, I will commit to one and not wuss out on a shirt that looks like one. Sorry.

I see Tetris, Mario, and Zelda. Oh my loves, how I've been neglecting you. Stupid growing up grad school real life responsibilities.

I hate to be that guy, but the plus-shaped directional pad is copyrighted and defended very strictly by Nintendo. Even though the Nintendo logo is not on the controller, it's still obviously their D-Pad. I have nothing against the design, as I'm a big Nintendo fan, but as such, I know how many ants they'll get in their pants about it. Then again, if Woot has already cleared it by their legal department, it may not matter.

Considering how overly complex and busy the design is, they could have found room for more than just Mario and Zelda icons (and a couple Tetris blocks).

I'm going to assume that most youngish video game players don't know many old games beyond those few, so any additional references would be lost. That being said, I agree with you.

I want to buy but, the tattoo design is well tattooey and stops me from purchasing it.

I wish my wife would get all the references in that write-up so I could steal it and give it to her as a nerdy love poem.

Instead, she'd be like "Is that video game stuff?" Alas...

Indeed. For those who haven't been paying attention the colors of the shirts listed on the blog from newest to oldest are

gray, gray, gray, black, gray, blue, gray, gray, gray, green, gray, gray. If you count black as one of the fifty shades of gray, that's 10:2

This looks like something that an off market Hot Topic would sell. Sorry, but I'm passing on it.

Geez... Next you'll tell me they're going to do a Smurfs movie, and all of my childhood memories will be destroyed by poor attempts at contemporizing. Oh yeah, they did destroy the Smurf legacy... And now this?!? An Ed Hardy does Nintendo shirt? Just as long as they don't ruin Star Wars...

I really like all the gray shirts. I normally only buy the gray and black ones.

I would buy this one, but the words don't quite seem logical. "Gamer's Love" Um? games...

I really really like the design, but not so much on the gray shirt. It really wipes it out for me. I would love to have this as a print, tho.

This is parody and is considered fair use. If this were an issue than 98% of the shirts on Woot would be violating copyright law because of all the video game, tv, and movie references. Just do a Google search for "nes controller shirt" and you will find countless shirts for sale with the dpad on it.

Also, some of you guys are being a bit rough on this design. The tattoo design is part of the humor! People get tattoos representing serious things like a deceased family member or a religious symbol. It's a play on how serious people take gaming. Personally, I think Biticol did a killer job!

I am a fan of this design! I love gritty/whimsical crossovers like this.

But my dear Woot: If you do so many Nintendo parodies, Y U no do Sega? Sonic needs lovin' as much as Mario! ;)

I recently lost about 80 pounds. Once I reach my goal weight, I am going to be getting a series of gamer tattoos. This shirt might be a necessity...

Old school Nintendo, what's not to love?!
Remember too many nights working through Mario, getting to new levels, what the heck?, dying, getting back up there again, dying again, repeat, darn you Nintendo!! Who needs sleep? Finding the codes, the secret paths back to the new levels ..... ahhh, youth.
Today's kids have no idea!

I'd like to second this, it's like most people don't even realize there are retro games that aren't Nintendo. I'd love a shirt that had some more generalized references instead of just Ninty stuff.

I'm not holding my breath for a TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine themed shirt, but a little Sega love would be appreciated by me as well

Just noticed today that the picture link for shirt.woot (e.g. bottom of this page or side of any other woot site) has a black t-shirt in a white circle icon as seen in the side sale. Does this mean woot might sell something that isn't a t-shirt on the main page?

I purchased the 7/2 Back In My Day tshirt and have worn and washed it twice. I was really sad to discover that the collar is coming detached from the shirt! I've purchased dozens of woot shirts and never encountered a quality issue like this before. It may just be a fluke, but has anyone else encountered this?

If I were making suggestions on improving the design, I'd have said to change Gamer's Love to Gamer's Life, and to have replaced the heart with a 3/4 full heart container.

Love it. I just started Woot and bought a couple of shirts yesterday. If I had known this one was going to show up today I would have bought 3 instead of just the one. Great art style (not sure why there are so many haters toward the tattoo look?) and great choice to use Nintendo (because lets be honest: retro Nintendo games are better than any other).
