Today will forever be known as the day Google disabled the productivity of an entire workforce with the addition of one beloved '80s arcade game to the "Google Doodle" part of its homepage.

In fact, if any Googlers are reading, it'd be great if you guys did this every Friday. And, if you need inspiration, here are our suggestions for other '80s games we'd like to
play see as your logo.
