Split screen icon

Postby VideoGameCritic » May 9th, 2019, 8:14 pm

While updating my review of Dragster for the Atari 2600 it occurred to me that a split-screen icon might be useful. Agree? Any idea what it should look like?

Seems kinda redundant once you get past the 16-bit era. Pretty much any multiplayer game (except fighting games and whatever genre Mario Party started) from the mid-'90s until very recently is going to have it.

I beg to disagree with this gen and FPSes. Very few support split screen. I think it's a good idea. And you could have a 2 player icon, 4 player icon and a 5+ icon for games that support more than 4 players locally. Lastly, an icon for games that support LAN would be cool. There are a few out there and being able to filter easily further makes your website super useful.

Great idea!

Actraiser - I like where your head is at! My current 3+ multiplayer icon is kind of odd. I think a 2P icon would be too common, but 4P and split-screen icons might be useful.
