The World Video Game Hall of Fame in Rochester NY announced the new nominees for 2017 induction. The list includes stalwarts like Halo and Mortal Kombat as well as more eye-raising inclusions like Wii Sports.
All of the nominees (full list below) have had an “undeniable impact on the world of gaming and popular culture,” The HoF said in a statement. Some of 2017’s nominees are 2016 contenders that did not make the cut, such as Tomb Raider and Street Fighter II.
Last years they inducted 6 games into the hall: Grand Theft Auto III, The Legend of Zelda, The Oregon Trail, The Sims, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Space Invaders.
