TUTORIAL: how to make a game style text effect

If you need to make a header for any kind of game related subject, I have a useful suggestion.

Beside using a very nice glow effect, the smart step here is to choose a font face that reminds (old times) game interfaces.

To get it done, go to this free text effect and configure it like shown below:
- Text: Games (I used this text as example, you choose yours);
- Font size: Normal;
- Margin: 3;
- Background color: it can't be used for this text effect in particular;
- Font name: Videophreak.

So you get a text like this (click to enlarge):

Extra tips:
- this tutorial can be usefull to make text to other subjects like gadgets, geek interests, etc;
- you can try many other neon text effects by choosing from this text generator catalog.
