Pixelitis Picks: Game company logo intros that ooze of nostalgia

Once that game you're itching to play boots up, a game company logo or two is going to be one of the first things to greet you. Sometimes they're completely unskippable (I'm glaring at you, Borderlands), and yet you'll come across more than a few that are too enjoyable to skip.

A good game company logo is usually brief and animates in a way that gets the player's attention. Sometimes a company's logo plays out stylishly by incorporating themes or characters from the game. These logos are almost always accompanied by a quick soundbyte or jingle that will forever be embedded in the recesses of your mind.

The funny thing is, a bunch of the good game company logos are skippable with the simple press of a button, but they're so enjoyable that we can't bring ourselves to pass them up.

So put your nostalgia caps and goggles on, because we'd like to share a few of those awesome game company intros that have always resonated within our hearts and minds. (Breath of Fire II , Capcom, Culture, LucasArts, Nintendo, Retro, Sony Computer Entertainment, Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader, Super Metroid)
