Your Twitter profile defines you. Not really, but it’s a nice spot to place a giant image of your favorite video games and let everyone know what you’re into.

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

  • Wednesday: The ’80s (part 2)

Today’s batch of headers features 10 more games released during the ’80s. 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.
