The World Video Game Hall of Fame recently celebrated six new inductees: Sonic the Hedgehog, GTA 3, The Oregon Trail, Space Invaders, The Legend of Zelda, and The Sims. So what makes a game eligible for such a prestigious honor, you ask? There are four criteria: the game must be widely recognized and remembered, it must exhibit longevity (remaining popular over time), it must enjoy international recognition and success, and it must have exerted significant influence on other games or the industry generally. With this in mind, we've been considering what games might make solid nominations for 2017's inductees into the World Video Game Hall of Fame. We think these 7 have a good chance of making the cut.
