"Icons" is a documentary TV show on G4 that used to focus on significant people, companies, products, history, and milestones in world of video games. It was relaunched in 2006 and now focuses entirely on pop culture.

On May 10, 2006, it was announced that Icons was relaunching on June 3 with an episode focusing on J.J. Abrams. [http://sev.prnewswire.com/entertainment/20060510/LAW05810052006-1.html] The show will feature a broader scope on things and people "men 18-34 care about, admire and emulate." Future episodes will focus on Marc Ecko, "The Onion", and "Family Guy". This change in format had been suspected, due to the recent episodes about George A. Romero, Frank Miller and the history of the "King Kong" franchise.

The classic video game themed episodes continue to air on the network sporadically, under the new name of "Game Makers."

Many of the episodes also available on some of the video sharing sites, Youtube and Google Video.
