The Tokyo 2020 Olympics may have been scaled back because of the pandemic, but the opening ceremony was certainly one to remember!
Not only did it commence with the usual flag procession, the spectacle included energetic dance routines, light displays, Japanese traditions and, of course, music - including some...familiar tunes.
Indeed, Japan has a long and celebrated history when it comes to video games, producing some of the most popular titles in the world.
From Final Fantasy to Sonic the Hedgehog - here's every video game score that was featured in the Tokyo 2020 opening ceremony...
Fans have since flooded social media with praise.
One viewer wrote: "Playing Frog's theme at the Olympics... I'm validated"
Another added: "Definitely hearing Starlight Zone theme from Sonic the Hedgehog playing at the #OpeningCeremony Love that! #Olympics."
