The die-hard gamer breathes all things related to reliving their on-screen persona. Although playing Zelda or World of Warcraft is enough to wet a true gamers appetite when it comes to thriving in cyberspace, reality soon hits and the chance of serious withdrawal is no laughing matter. To help these individuals cope with the severance between the offline and online spheres, gamer accessories have been pushed into the limelight by those who understand this dilemma. From Pokémon bowties to Super Mario guitars, these items offer game-lovers just the right amount of pizzazz to never fully let go of their onscreen avatar.

After playing a cutthroat round of Super Smash Brothers and dominating Kirby with your sword-wielding Zelda character, you realize that the time has come to cut all onscreen ties for the day and face the real world. You hit the off button, and feel a pang of withdrawal instantly, like your lifeline is slowly draining. Thankfully you look down to see the one piece of clothing to get you through the next 24 hours: a gaming bowtie. The small item is no more than a tiny section of folded fabric, but the Pokémon decorations provide the perfect boost to fuel your batteries until the next epic battle. Thanks to Crashed Hope Designs, you now have a number of themed bowties to choose from.
Game Boy Watch
While some individuals will continue their love of gaming throughout their lifetime, others move on until the days of playing Duck Hunt become a distant memory. Although not everyone regrets dropping this popular pastime, it’s hard not to feel a pang of nostalgia upon seeing a SNES with Super Mario Kart on repeat. To avoid these sudden hits of pastime memories, proud gamers can hang onto a keepsake at all times with the Game Boy watch. Picture an old-school Game Boy, but in miniature timepiece form. Although you won’t be able to play any games on the device, you can still reminisce about the good times while maintaining a punctual schedule.
Although the traditional gamer stereotype is an adolescent male who spends an excessive amount of time online, ladies are now starting to show their gaming love with geek-chic accessories. Men may show their passion with bowties, but women can also boast their interest with these Super Mario-Inspired rings. The pixilated Question Mark ring is made from silver and can add a bit of bling to any outfit, even if your gaming days are now over.
