You don't get that stuff with a game, most these days come with the discs in little paper "protectors" and that's IT, no manual, hell to lazy to even provide a catalog of nifty items that have the games logo on them... let alone a shirt that's way to small. It really pisses me off to be honest that they've become so cheap. The last game I recall having something inside I really liked was Warcraft 3 and that's because its manual is THICK with a ton of okay written back story that's kinda neat if you're into the Warcraft-verse. You don't even get jewel cases these days... that's sad.
