While not everyone is crazy about Twitter’s new layout, we can all agree that a bigger header image is a good thing when showing off your favorite video games.

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

  • Tuesday: The ’80s (part 1)

Today’s batch of headers features 10 titles released from 1980 to 1989. Click on the thumbnails to enlarge the pictures, and then right-click (or Ctrl-click for Macs) them and hit “save image as” to save to your computer.

Check out our gaming-themed Facebook Timeline covers here.
