Fangamer is a website that I am always surprised that more people don’t know about. No matter what kind of gamer you are, you are more than likely to find something that interests you in their store. Fangamer has a huge selection of exclusive merch spanning from AAA fan favorites like Dark Souls and Persona 5 to the more humble indie darlings such as Stardew Valley and Hollow Knight.
What makes Fangamer so unique is the amount of variety displayed in their merchandise. Here you can find the standard fare of t-shirts and posters, but don’t be surprised to find glassware, plushies, figurines, and even potholders and kitchen towels!?!
Fangamer goes all out and can be the perfect place to find a gift for a friend, or even something for yourself to splurge on. With over 60 different game licenses to choose from you are bound to find what you are looking for here.
Also be on the lookout for the exclusive special editions that Fangamer releases. Both Undertale and Slime Rancher have exclusive physical collector’s editions that can only be purchased through Fangamer, and they are quite awesome.
Iam8bit is a web store that specializes in the more artistic side of gaming. Here you are more likely to find awesome art prints and vinyl records, though they do offer t-shirts and pins as well.
If you are at all into gaming music then iam8bit is definitely a must stop. They have one of the largest selections of exclusive gaming vinyl that you will find on the internet. This site boasts exclusive soundtracks for games like Cuphead, 2064 Read Only Memories, Shadow of the Colossus, Skyrim, and so many more.
Maybe you’re the type of person who just wants to adorn their game room with exclusive art prints. Iam8bit has an amazing selection of high-quality art prints from some extremely talented artists. Their selection is not only huge but extremely diverse spanning from classic Nintendo titles all the way to modern indie classics.

If you are looking for a unique gaming t-shirt then The Yetee has you covered. Every day The Yetee offers a new exclusive design that is only available for 24 hrs. That means if you miss it it’s gone forever, but it also means you are guaranteed to have a shirt that most people will never own.
The Yetee offers humorous shirts featuring crossovers from some of the most legendary characters in gaming. However, not all of their selection is silly mash-ups. Just check their collections tabs to see some amazing exclusive shirts from popular indies like A Hat in Time, Celeste, Owlboy, The Binding of Issac, and so many more.
While The Yetee specializes in t-shirts, don’t forget to check out some of their other awesome swag. Exclusive vinyl records, enamel pins, and specialty posters can also be found on The Yetee’s website.
Mondo has mostly become known for its high-quality movie merchandise. Don’t let that fool you, because Mondo has some pretty legit video game merchandise as well. From exclusive The Last Of Us art prints to Insomniac’s Spider-Man vinyl soundtrack, if you look hard enough you might just find some great gaming merchandise.
The best thing about all of Mondo’s merchandise is the amount of quality they put into it. Whether it’s the beautiful artwork on a gatefold vinyl soundtrack or the extremely high-quality art prints, you are always going to get what you paid for.
A lot of Mondo’s merchandise is extremely limited so it’s always a good idea to check back often. You never know what they might have, but you can guarantee that it won’t be in stock for long.
Devolver Digital Store
I tried to keep game publishers stores off of this list. Sites like the Square Enix Store, SEGA Shop, and even the Pokemon Center are web stores that I feel a lot of people know about. However, when it comes to some of the most unique and creative titles in gaming you can look no further than Devolver Digital. Which is why I feel like I just had to mention the Devolver Digital Merch Store.
Not only do they release some of the most unique titles in the indie scene, but they have some of the most unique merchandise to represent these titles. Whether it be their line of highly detailed Hotline Miami figures or their Enter the Gungeon socks, you can definitely find some unique merchandise here.
So what do you guys think? Are there any awesome web stores we missed? Be sure to let us know where you buy your unique video game merchandise and don’t forget to check out more great gaming news and articles on WTFGamersonly.
