First 6 Games Enter The World Video Game Hall Of Fame

That's a pretty impressive list, don't you think?

The first inductees for the "World Video Game Hall of Fame" have been revealed; you can seem them at The Strong Museum's website.

It's no surprise to see certain classics in there and it makes sense that these are the first games to be honored:

  • Doom (1993)
  • Pong (1972)
  • Pac-Man (1980)
  • Super Mario Bros. (1985)
  • Tetris (1984)
  • World of Warcraft (2004)

These 6 were culled from a pool of 15 finalists, which included The Legend of Zelda, Angry Birds, FIFA, Minecraft, The Oregon Trail, Pokemon, Sonic the Hedgehog, The Sims, and Space Invaders. The titles that didn't make the cut have another chance at induction next year; nominations for the class of 2016 will be accepted through March 31, 2016.

A panel of journalists and scholars decide which games make the cut, but which ones would you like to see join the honorees next year? Final Fantasy? Half-Life? Command & Conquer? Dare I say...Call of Duty?

All those were excellent first entries.
Space Invaders *must* be included next year - the first shoot-em-up ever? Of course!
