Gamers are losing it over Nintendo's ingenious GameCube logo (again)

As certain as day turning into night, and summer into autumn, is the reappearance of the Nintendo GameCube logo on Reddit's r/DesignPorn page. One again, gamers are cooing over the design's brilliant use of negative space – and we don't blame them. While the PS5 and Nintendo Switch are all the rage right now, the 2001 console might just have the best video game logo of all time.

Almost every day, an internet user discovers a hidden message (or three) in the design. One Reddit user (below) recently paid tribute to its ingenuity, highlighting that as well as a cube, the logo also manages to resemble a G. But other users have subsequently pointed out a third hidden message. Yep, like with all the best logos, there's a lot going on here.
