There are always logos in video games that stand out, but these are classics.
Besides the figures and the way the game is played, a video game’s logo is what makes it unique. It’s what makes the video game stand out and what you’ll remember about it right away. Over time, the picture becomes more well-known and stays in your mind.
There are a lot of games with logos that are just as smart and creative as the games themselves. Sometimes it’s the unique title style that no other game can copy, or it could be a design that has something to do with the story or how the game is played. In any case, just the logos of these games are enough to make a lasting impact.
Infamous by Sucker Punch has a logo design that is notoriously overlooked. It’s strange and eye-catching at the same time to separate a lowercase “in” from “Famous” and make a box around the text with parts of the city skyline inside it. The silhouette of the main character is also cut out of the letter “O” in the logo. This character fits in with the cityscape and stays the same from game to game.
It looks like a black-and-white picture from a comic book, and that’s how the game tells the story. It’s a show about metahumans called Conduits who are different from Marvel and DC heroes and can use their skills to do good or bad things. In the first two games, you play as Cole McGrath, who can control lightning. In the third game, you play as Delsin Rowe, who can control fire.
Final Fantasy is a popular RPG series that is known for its amazing plots, characters, settings, and cutscenes with a lot of conversation. The detailed logos that show important parts of the game and are wrapped around the signature title font are another thing that sets it apart from other games in the same genre. Like the one from Final Fantasy 16.
You can see a big cinematic fight from the game between the yellow-orange Pheonix Eikon and the purple Eikon of Fire with horns, Ifrit. You’ll meet a lot more Eikons than just these two in the game, but this is a nice tidbit of information that gives you a good idea of what the story will be about.
Dead By Daylight
There are a lot of great survival horror games that don’t have very memorable logos. The only ones that come to mind are Amnesia’s hazy font and Resident Evil’s Umbrella Corporation image. Even though they are well-known, they are not what makes the game stand out. But Dead by Daylight’s logo is simple and original, and it fits with the game’s themes.
Dead by Daylight is an asymmetrical multiplayer horror game with a tally mark of five. The four white lines that look like daggers reflect the team of four survivors, and the black ink dripping from the top of each line is a skull. The vertical slash mark is for the killer in the game, whose job is to make sure no one else lives.
This indie hit is just as good as No Man’s Sky and The Outer Worlds in terms of how it plays and how its title looks. Outer Wilds is one of the few space adventure games with a logo that is both visually interesting and fits the game’s themes. The “O” in “Outer” has a crescent moon in the top corner, and the letters in “Wilds” look like they are growing branches, with the “I” turning into a whole tree.
With a time loop that affects the solar system you’re in, Outer Wilds gives sci-fi space travel games a bit of a twist. As a member of the Outer Wilds Ventures Space Program, your job is to explore the different planets in the system, like Timber Hearth, which has the same kind of wildness that the logo shows.
The Assassin’s Creed series by Ubisoft is best known for the symbol of the Order, which can be seen on the title screens and is worn by characters like Ezio Auditore and Connor. It looks like the outline of an eagle’s head, which is important to the story, because it is a curved triangle sitting on a curved line that goes to each point.
In the Assassin’s Creed games, you play as different main characters from this group at different times and places in history. When you’re on a job, you can use a variety of methods and weapons to sneak up on enemies or fight them head-on. Open-world RPGs like Odyssey and Valhalla have some of the most expansive environments and stories.
All of the letters in the Minecraft logo have the look and feel of the building blocks you use, and the “A” has a face of a Creeper, one of the most well-known enemies you’ll face. This image is loved by everyone because it is clever and effective at summing up the game and looks great in 3D. You’ve probably worn it or at least seen it on official T-shirts, toys, and even the boxes of its Lego sets.
In both Creative Mode and Survival Mode, Minecraft is all about being creative with the materials you find all over the open world map. It is one of the friendliest survival games because of the bright 3D art style and pixelated graphics. The name is also a big part of the game’s appeal.
BioShock was not only a great follow-up to System Shock, but it also had a much more detailed logo that showed the game’s setting, Rapture. Its letters and shape are made of a metallic material with a rough texture. This is meant to look like industrial construction and the rusted background of the enemies of Big Daddy.
This FPS series is one of the best of all time because of its story, setting, enemies, and combat system, which adds special skills to weapons. If you like science fiction and historical timelines, Slope Game made dystopian societies like you’ve never seen them before. The first two were set underground, and Infinite took place in Columbia, a cloud city.
Pac-Man is like a set of great icons that fit inside each other. He is a famous figure from a famous, old-school arcade game with a famous font and logo. Pac-Man’s open mouth takes the place of the letter “C” in the title, which is also yellow. The letters “A” and “P” in the title logo also have small holes in them, which may be meant to represent the dots you have to eat, and the “M” still looks like Pac-Man’s mouth.
Pac-Man is a simple game that became one of the most important and famous games of all time. It’s fun to play because a yellow circle tries to get all the pixelated dots in a maze while avoiding ghosts of different colors that are trying to stop your winning run but can also be eaten.
The Mortal Kombat mark has been a part of all of the games and movies since the beginning. When you think of Mortal Kombat, you probably think of this logo before you think of any of the famous figures. It’s a simple design of a circle and a dragon, almost like the sigil of the House Targaryen. It also represents the whole series.
This style is also important because of what it means. In the world of Mortal Kombat, the dragon represents the Elder Gods, while the curve and shape of the dragon inside the circle give it a ‘Yin and Yang’ look that shows how different the characters are and how their personalities and skills are.
Grand Theft Auto
Since GTA 3 came out in 2001, the mainline game logos have used the Grand Theft Auto font. It is probably the most instantly recognized and iconic font of any game series. Pricedown is a font that came out just in time in 2000. Its lowercase letters and the way the “r” and “h” in the title mix together define the game as much as the characters and world do.
Even though a lot of games try to copy its style, Rockstar’s open-world crime series is great because of its writing, characters, vehicles, and tasks that stick with you. And the Online part of GTA 5 is even better than the main story. The games look different from others because they have this logo and a collection of pictures on the cover art.
