The old Twitter header image on your profile was small and puny. The new layout provides a much larger space to display a custom picture, so why not use that area to flaunt one of those awesome video games you won’t shut up about?

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

  • Thursday: The ’90s (part 1)

Today’s batch of headers features 10 titles released from 1990 to 1999. 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.
