Man this thread is great. Love all the stuff in here, but here's one that I enjoy that hasn't been mentioned yet:


Used in MGS4, if memory serves me right.

Hmm... some great ones have been posted, most notably Nintendo but also some from games (Doom does have a great logo, doesn't it), but I don't see this one, and I've always liked it, it's one of my favorites... Interplay.



The animated version of it with the over-the-top sounds and laser drawing in the script is one of my favorites too. :)

Yeah, and it's even more awesome with the audio. :) It just screams "these CD things are awesome!" so much... it's my favorite logo animation. Though it was cool how all the Lucasarts games each had their own, unique, animation... but that Interplay one really is great.

It's funny though, for a static version of the Interplay logo I like the classic red and purple version more, over the gold version... that's why I posted that one, and not one of the gold logo.

My personal fav of the interplay logos was the Fallout variant which they then adopted as the standard going forward.

Feel free to tar and feather me, but I always thought Sega didn't quite make the Saturn logo as cool as it might seem in concept. I just see a simple rounded "S" shape warped around a blue orb. There's just no pizazz to it. It looks like they pretty much stuck with the first concept that someone sketched on a napkin.

Most logos that use shodo are better than English ones by default.

How about in-universe stuff?

Because there's nothing like the simple, futuristic-but-timeless elegance of the racing team logos in Wipeout:



I also like Sarif Industries from Deus Ex:



And the Abstergo logo from Assassin's Creed:



And all the storefront logos in Final Fantasy XII (this isn't a very good shot):



And the logos in Valkyria Chronicles:

Or all together:

Liking yer style!

Speaking of which:


Oh shit. Last, but not least:


Edit: Just noticed I doubled-up on Wipeout (and Psygnosis), but they needs as much love as possible.

When I first saw it after Sony shut them down, I thought "wow that looks so European demoscene" lol. I might just be talking crazy, but whatever, it's awesome.
Fun fact: Not entirely related, but Remedy basically stemmed completely from a European demoscene group called Future Crew :)

PS. And honestly, I've always liked the original Xbox logo, too:

I liked "low quality" video and framerate of some logo intros of that time, it immediately suggested that it is from a video game, and not anything else. I knew good times were coming after it :).

I kinda like that bad, old CGI. It's deeply connected with video games in my brain.



I liked these (you covered all good game logos)

Whatever NBA Jam's is. I don't know why but that game was really important to me as a tween or teen. The one for SNES anyway. Man, that really defined a period for me and my brother and friends.
