Icons is a show that profiles video games.

I always love video games and this is a show that would shows how far video games have come.

ICONS is one show that would give fans information and the history of their favorite games.

Icons would get people who work with video games or people who write about video games to talk about the games the show is talking about.

ICONS would talk about a video game series or a game genre.

ICONS is great show to learn about how a video game became so successful.

The show is very good and it's cool to see some great games on the show.

Icons is so well done.
