Top 15 Finalists For the Video Game Hall Of Fame

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?
