Some of the your favorite beloved video games have been inducted into the World Video Game Hall of Fame. There are six games in total that have received the honor thus far. Those games are Pac-Man, Tetris, Pong, Super Mario Bros., Doom, and World of Warcraft. All are deserving.
The games received this honor for several reasons, but mostly because they’ve “transcended the world of gaming” to have a larger impact on the world as a whole. And looking at that list, they are certainly right.
These games have all had a profound impact on culture. they are more than just a passing fad. Even people who haven’t played the games have likely heard of them and know about them. There are other criteria a game has to meet to get this honor though. A game must have longevity and be iconic, must have international reach, and must have had some kind of influence on games that came after them, as well as culture, society, or entertainment. These are but the first of what is sure to be a great roster of video game titles that earn the honor. Congrats to these games and those who made them and played them.
