Earlier this month Google invited the gaming world to take a look at their “new collection of gaming themes for iGoogle” during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. The conference is now over (it was held from the 23rd to the 27th of March), and it is with great pleasure that we inform you that these gaming themes are already available for the general public. What this means is that you can now get your iGoogle personalized homepage with chatting capabilities to look like your favorite game, be it Super Mario, Spore, or Street Fighter.

“These themes offer our users new iGoogle backdrops inspired by their favorite video games, including classics like "Mario" and "Mega Man" and new sensations like "Wii Sports" and "Spore." Like our iGoogle artist themes, fashion and music themes and themes for causes, we hope that the game themes delight our users and reflect their personal interests. As you can imagine, these themes in particular have captivated our iGoogle software engineers who are gamers themselves,” commented Vice President of Search Products and User Experience with Google, Marissa Mayer.


Here is a detailed list of gaming themes available for iGoogle users: Animal Crossing, The Lord of the Rings: Conquest, Call of Duty: World at War, Donkey Kong, Dungeons & Dragons, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles, Tomb Raider Underworld, Galaga, World of Warcraft, Mega Man (check out the picture at the bottom), Mario, The Sims 3, Guitar Hero, Magic: the Gathering, Street Fighter IV, Zelda, Spore, Burnout Paradise: Ultimate Box, Wii Sports, The Godfather II, Fifa 09, Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 2, and Dragon Age Origins.

“iGoogle now has graphics from all sorts of games that I know will excite my fellow gamers. Picture your homepage with "Burnout" cars zooming in the background, Ryu from "Street Fighter" blasting hadoukens across your page, or rock stars jamming out to tunes from "Guitar Hero." It doesn't end there. For those of you who used to dream about completing the Triforce or getting out of tombs alive, choose from "Zelda" or "Tomb Raider." Want more? Try "Dungeons & Dragons," "The Sims 3," or "World of Warcraft" on for size,” says iGoogle Engineer, Matthew Chan.
