Top 15 Finalists For the Video Game Hall Of Fame

88 0
The Strong National Museum of Play has announced its 15 finalist for induction into the World Video Game Hall Of Fame.. Those nominees are:
Angry Birds
DOOM
FIFA
The Legend of Zelda
Minecraft
The Oregon Trail
Pac-Man
Pokémon
Pong
The Sims
Sonic the Hedgehog
Space Invaders
Super Mario Bros.
Tetris
World of Warcraft

A pretty solid game list if I do say so. It was based off 4 criteria. Icon-status" (i.e., wide recognition), longevity ("more than a passing fad"), geographical reach, and overall influence (on games, entertainment, pop culture, etc.).

I think Zork is solidly missing.. but otherwise can safely say i've played each and every one of these hits.. 🙂 What do you think of this list… anything missing?
