Video Games Packaging have become prettier and prettier over the years as more and more gamers are willing to buy them. I’m no gamer– in fact, I do hate games because I believe they promote laziness and violence. Yes, I’m unpleasant like that. Somebody shoot me now. But I do love collector’s edition video games packaging! So much that it made me forget my hatred for video games. If you’re looking for a perfect gift for a gamer in your life or if you’re simply looking for CD/DVD packaging inspiration, then this is for you. Here are some of the most creative packaging and collector’s items for video games.
Fall Out 3
I’m not a gamer but I fell in love with Fall-out 3’s goodies! The set comes with the iconic bobblehead and a functional lunch box. Too cool!
Shogun Total War 2
Definitely the best gift to give a video gamer who’s a chess addict as well. Spell N-E-R-D. The Shogun Total War 2 Collector’s Edition has been announced, and it includes a complete chess set, artbook, “Art of War” Bamboo box replica, and a Takeda Shingen Daimyo figurine.
Batman: Arkham City
Warner Brothers Interactive Collector’s Edition of Batman: Arkham City. This $99 set includes custom Batman statue,art book, early access to the Iceberg Lounge Challenge Map and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns skin, Batman: Arkham City album, Batman: Gotham Knight Four collectible cards. I just love the black and white and red combo. Makes the whole set a work of art.
The Special Edition of RAGE contains an individually numbered A3 Rage Print, Rage Wing stick, Gang Badges, and Anarchy Edition.
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception
This set comes in “Travelling Chest” which contains the kick-ass 8.5″ Nathan Drake Statue, Wearable replica of Nathan Drake’s belt buckle, Wearable replica of Nathan Drake’s ring with necklace strap, Exclusive Steelbook™ game case. Kudos for the wearable concept. Perfect gift for hard-to-please men (or boys). If he finds the game lame, at least he still has the Nathan Drake statue. If after 2 minutes he gets tired of it, well…at least he has functional items like the buckle and necklace.
Includes an Artbook, redemption code,game items, and of course- a handsome statue.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Aside from the usual stuff, this also contains 10,000 extra credits that can be used to purchase or upgrade in-game artillery.
