The original Assassin's Creed and The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time are among the classic games currently shortlisted for inclusion in the 2022 World Video Game Hall Of Fame.
New York-based Strong National Museum of Play announced the 12 finalists earlier this week, with just a few of the titles to be inducted in May. Successful inductees are chosen based on various criteria, most notably how recognisable and revered they are around the world.
Why not take a look at some of our favourite games from last year below? Potential future Hall Of Famers, one and all.
2022's potential finalists are as follows: Assassin's Creed, The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time, Candy Crush Saga, Dance Dance Revolution, Minesweeper, Ms. Pac Man, NBA Jam, PaRappa The Rapper, Resident Evil, Rogue, Sid Meier's Civilization, and Words With Friends.
“This year’s 12 finalists showcase the range and depth of the video game world,” Jon-Paul C. Dyson, director of The Strong’s International Center for the History of Electronic Games, said via press release. “There are true icons like Ms. Pacman, games that changed the industry like Rogue, and smartphone games that made gamers out of hundreds of millions of people, such as Candy Crush Saga and Words with Friends.”
The 12 games were chosen from a list of thousands of nominations. Fans can also vote for their favourite of the finalists until March 24 by heading to worldvideogamehalloffame.org. The winners will be announced on May 5.
