Gaming art for your Facebook Timeline (Part 4: The 8/16-bit Era)

Facebook timeline covers

Facebook’s Timeline lets you place an image at the top of your profile. Sure, you could add a crummy, awkwardly cropped family photo — or you can use a kick-ass cover from your favorite video game.

We’re releasing seven days’ worth of artwork, each with a different theme, that you can use to decorate your Facebook profile:

Today’s batch of covers features 10 classic titles from the 8- and 16-bit days of gaming. Click on the thumbnails to enlarge the pictures, then right-click (or ctrl-click for Macs) them and hit “save image as” to save to your computer.

Check out our gaming-themed Twitter headers here.
