Six more games have been added to The Strong National Museum of Play‘s World Video Game Hall of Fame following last year’s inaugural class. This year’s inductees include titles across many genres and decades.
These games were chosen from a pool of 15 finalists. Games that were nominated but did not make it into the Hall of Fame this year included Elite, Final Fantasy, John Madden Football, Minecraft, Nürburgring, Pokemon Red and Green, Sid Meier’s Civilization, Street Fighter II, and Tomb Raider.
Inductees for the World Video Game Hall of Fame include games that “have enjoyed popularity over a sustained period and have exerted influence on the video game industry or on popular culture and society in general.” More details about selection criteria can be seen here.
