In February the International Center for the History of Electronic Games (ICHEG) at The Strong National Museum of Play announced plans to create a World Video Game Hall of Fame -- with plans to induct several iconic, influential, long-lived games. The public was invited to nominate games; the first group of finalists, both old and new, has been revealed, as pictured above.

  • 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

The inductees will be announced in a ceremony at the museum on June 4. For more information on the games included, you can read the ICHEG's release.

The museum has of late done a great deal to preserve game history: It's amassed collections from classic publishers such as Broderbund, Atari, SSI, and a massive library of classic Japanese games.
