Four new video games (effectively, technically 5) have been inducted into the Video Game Hall of Fame on the Strong National Museum of Play, New York.
The 4 new inductees are Halo: Combat Evolved, Street Fighter 2, Donkey Kong (the arcade authentic), and Pokemon Red/Green (the unique Japanese variations, therefore no Blue).
The different nominees this yr, which didn’t make it, had been Final Fantasy 7, Microsoft Windows Solitaire, Mortal Kombat, Myst, Portal, Resident Evil, Tomb Raider and Wii Sports.
These 4 video games will be a part of the inductees from earlier years. In 2016 The Oregon Trail, Grand Theft Auto three, The Legend of Zelda, The Sims, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Space Invaders had been introduced in. In 2015, the inaugural yr of the Hall of Fame, they inducted Doom, Pong, Pac-Man, Super Mario Bros, Tetris, and World of Warcraft.
These video games will now be displayed throughout the museum, and preserved for future generations.
