When It Comes To Logos These Companies Don't Play Around

Contributed by Lou Simeone

The video game industry is a multi billion dollar industry. In March, Forbes reported that Gabe Newell, founder of Valve Corporation, is "one of the richest people on the planet". Valve Corporation is a major player in the PC game industry with award winners such as Half-Life®, Left 4 Dead®, Counter-Strike® and more in their arsenal. In 2012 Forbes also reported that Hiroshi Yamauchi, the man credited with completely changing Nintendo from a maker of card games into a multibillion-dollar video game titan, has a net worth of $2.5 B. And the pioneer of the early home computer games industry, EA Sports, can tell you that becoming the exclusive game for the NFL comes with a $300 million dollar price tag. Video games are serious business. And these businesses pay serious attention to their branding. Today we're going to focus on part of that branding - you guessed it - the logos.

If you have kids, especially teenage boys, then you're almost certainly familiar with this collection of logos. Assembled here today are the logos of some highly regarded video game companies and logos for a few of their popular video games. Many of these logos are among the most recognizable logos ever created. Heck, some of them are classics that you might remember from your own carefree days as a gamer. Unfortunately, it's difficult to ascertain the names of the designers who created them. If you can identify the designers that created any of the logos featured today please let us know in the comments, so we can check out more of their creative work. And, if I inadvertently left out any logos, call that out in the comments also.
