Bob-omb paper weights, Halo action figures, Big Daddy models, and Fallout bubbleheads, these items are what the gaming world calls swag. Swag is something we get to show off to our friends and family to make them jealous of what we have. Call it a conversation piece or a collector's item, but either way, it's swag.
Many gamers collect swag that we get from going to random events. What makes us get swag? Is it our need to show off that we love a certain franchise or company, or is it just because it looks cool and you want to be different?
