Who is going to be the lucky ones to enter the hall of fame that is designed for video games?
Will it be Solitaire that is finally able to play its cards right and enter the hall? Could the popular franchise, Mortal Kombat be able to “Finish it” and claim it’s rightful place in the hall? Or could it be the popular mobile game, Candy Crush that is able to enter the hall at a very young age?
There are 12 different games that are up for nomiation that include Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros, and NBA 2K. The expert committee will decide whether or not any of these 12 games will be inducted in the hall on May 2nd. Gamers are also allowed to vote for their favorites into the hall until March 28th in an online ballot.
The World Video Game Hall of Fame is located in Rochester, NY and it recognizes all electronic games in many different platforms from arcade to mobile phones.
It also shows how popular the video game industry is as they are also breaking records in profits again as the industry is projected to make nearly $140 billion from last year compared to the dwarf size amount of $43.4 billion made by the movie industry.
It is very honorable for these games to be considered for the hall of fame and good luck to each and everyone of these games in their races to enter the hall.
