When we discuss games, we talk about a lot of different things: story, graphics, visuals, and gameplay. We often overlook the importance of the title screen. Thankfully, Art of the Title reminds us how important these moments are.

In “A Brief History of Video Game Title Design,” Art of the Title editor Ian Albison dives deep into our history, starting with Donkey Kong in 1981 and concludes 35 titles later with The Last of Us. Kudos to Albison for including my personal favorite (and one of my top three games of all time), Mega Man 2.

The video is set to Anamanaguchi’s “Endless Fantasy.” You can check it out below.
