Which Video Games Offer The Most Memorabilia?
Generally, the most successful games inspire the most memorabilia. For example, "World of Warcraft" is a very successful massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) with more than 10 million subscribers at the end of 2014. As a result, the game has inspired many related products, including action figures, statues, artwork, books, board games, and miniatures. New games from successful franchises like "Grand Theft Auto" and "Assassin's Creed" often launch with bundles that contain limited edition memorabilia in addition to the game.
What Special Edition Memorabilia Is Available?
The hottest new games are often available as special edition releases in addition to standard releases. Special editions contain exciting products like T-shirts, figurines, books, art cards, and collectibles. For example, "Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood" for the PlayStation 4 was available as a special edition featuring a soundtrack disc, a map of Rome, an art book, and a jack-in-the-box. The special release for the squad-based action game "Evolve" included wristbands, pin badges, and a steelcase edition of the game. Collectors can find intact special editions as well as the separate components that were originally part of packs.
How Can You Display Video Game Memorabilia?
Video game memorabilia covers a wide range of products, and the best display options vary. Statues and action figures look attractive on shelves, but they can bleach in direct sunlight and gather dust if exposed. For those reasons, glass display cases away from windows are a good choice. Flat items, such as art cards and posters, allow collectors to make attractive wall displays with frames, but these items also need to avoid direct sunlight.
