The Periodic Table of Video Games

Posted on March 26, 2009 Under Design

We have to give serious props to the guy behind the I Heart Chaos site for creating this. Not only is it an entertaining way to see if your friends really are as knowledgeable about games as they claim, but since it’s based on the Periodic Table of Elements, it totally makes our geek heart melt. In fact, we might purchase a print of it at Redbubble.

In place of elements like Aluminum and Boron are a mix of classic characters like Mario, Pac-Man, and Little Nemo, and popular new ones from Hitman and Gears of War. While some people are getting all worked up about Master Chief being left off — and some elements being in the wrong places — we can look past these goofs. Can you name them all the games referenced in the table? We can.
