The World Video Game Hall of Fame has announced their four inductees for 2022.
They are: Ms. Pac-Man (1982) Sid Meier’s Civilization (1991) The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998) and “Dance Dance Revolution” (1998).
In order to become eligible for the Hall of Fame, a video game has to meet four criteria. First, it has to have icon status, meaning it’s widely recognized and remembered. Second, it has to have longevity, so it has to be more than a fad.
Third, it has to have geographical reach, and fourth, it has to have influence, whether that’s in pop culture or with the development of future games.
You can visit the Hall of Fame inside the Strong Museum in Rochester, New York.
