12 Games Nominated For 2024 World Video Game Hall Of Fame

The 2024 nominees for the World Video Game Hall of Fame have been announced by The Strong National Museum. This year’s list of nominees includes: Asteroids, Elite, Guitar Hero, Metroid, Myst, Neopets, Resident Evil, Tokimeki Memorial, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, Ultima, and You Don’t Know Jack.

“The finalists this year have the honor of competing to be in the 10th class of inductees to the World Video Game Hall of Fame,” The Strong’s International Center for the History of Electronic Games director Jon-Paul C. Dyson said in a statement announcing the nominees.

“Even 10 years in, there’s no shortage of deserving contenders that have had enormous influence on pop culture or the game industry itself. These games span decades. Asteroids is an icon of the late 70s arcade. Myst showed the potential of CD-ROM technology in the 90s. Neopets became a staple of browser-based, free games as we entered the 2000s. And Guitar Hero, which is less than 20 years old, has already proven its staying power.”

With the nominees announced, voting is now open to the public to determine who this year’s inductees will be. Voting runs from March 14-21 with the inductees being announced during a ceremony on May 9.

Current games in the hall of fame include Pong, Wii Sports, StarCraft, Animal Crossing, and more. You can see all of the inducted games at the official website.

The World Video Game Hall of Fame is located at The Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester, NY.
