Does anyone know of a good pixel-like, retro video game font that is web-safe? I am having trouble finding one.



Unfortunately, none of the "true" web-safe fonts really fit your description (W3Schools has compiled a useful list of safe options: W3Schools page on web-safe fonts).

What you could do is use the @font-face rule, it's widely supported nowadays and pretty easy to implement: http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css3_pr_font-face_rule.asp

My favourite old school game font is Arcade Classic, you can get it here: http://www.dafont.com/arcade-classic-pizz.font

    Just to point out, although it may give a useful answer in this this case, W3schools is not any kind of authority. – e100 Mar 5 '12 at 16:20
  • Yes, sorry, "approved" was probably too strong a word. What I meant is that they've compiled a useful list which covers this topic. I'll edit. – Heroes182 Mar 5 '12 at 16:55
  • Unfortunately, no one is an "authority". Damn browsers, being all different. – tylerthemiler Mar 6 '12 at 3:52
  • Check out the @font-face-property in css for websafe fonts! All fonts are websafe thees days! – Kristoffer Nolgren Mar 9 '12 at 18:24
  • The Arcade Classic font is only free for non commercial purpose.. – Rosdi Kasim Aug 21 '15 at 6:10
