Favorite Banner?

Postby VideoGameCritic » February 26th, 2018, 12:03 am

It just occurred to me my favorite banner, "Winter" is going to stop displaying on March 1. *Sad face* This is the one with the purple color scheme and AT-AT walker from the Atari 2600 Empire Strikes Back. I have a program that automatically displayed certain banners during certain times of the year, and March begins the Spring season.

Which banner is your favorite? Check out this link for reference (it shows them all):

I want to once again thank Mark Jewel for creating all of these. They really are mini works of art! They give the site its distinctive look.

Hard to decide. The arcade one with Pac-Man and Joust is great, even though you don't review arcade machines. Pirates ties in nicely with your appreciation for different themes and settings and features an unexpected favorite of mine, The Secret of Monkey Island. The Tron banner is the slickest and most impressive. And the April Fool's banner always gets a chuckle.

The '70s one would be my favorite if it didn't have that Matrix background. Unless I squint really hard, I don't think of a TRS-80 or Apple II when I see it; I think of bullet time and the Propellerheads. I remember the postcard banner getting an upgrade and being added to the rotation, so I'm hopeful that this might change someday too, even if the chances are pretty slim.

"Crazy" from April 2013 looks awesome, and screams personality. It's my favorite of the new banners for sure. For classic banners, you can't beat the original.

I'm thinking "Retro 2" or "Atari."

Noticed the original banners page is gone: http://videogamecritic.com/banners_orig.htm :(

I think you stumbled upon a bad link. I fixed one I found.
Let me know if there are any other broken links.

Personal favorites are Dreamcast and Tron. But the ones I feel represent the site best are Retro 2 and Crazy.

Are Man Evolution and Woman Evolution still in rotation - I like those and they nicely encapsulate your span of reviews

Scotland - I didn't see those - are they the old ones?

Yes, they are two of the old ones. Are those no longer able to be used?
