Five Other Video Games That Would Make Great Google Logos

Posted By on Fri, May 21, 2010 at 4:12 PM

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.

Concerned about how many work hours the interactive PAC-MAN game usurped, we contacted Google; While the official word was "We don't have any specific metrics to share around our PAC-MAN doodle," we're going to venture, judging by the tweets and computer screens around the office, quite a few.

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.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
