The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Leads 2022’s World Video Game Hall of Fame Inductees

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has officially been inducted into the World Video Game Hall of Fame alongside Ms. Pac-Man, Dance Dance Revolution, and Sid Meier’s Civilization.

These games join 32 others that have been inducted since the World Video Game Hall of Fame began at New York’s The Strong National Museum of Play in 2015.

The Top 10 N64 Games of All Time

So far, the list includes such games as Grand Theft Auto 3, the original Legend of Zelda, Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Mario Bros., Tetris, Halo: Combat Evolved, Minecraft, Final Fantasy VII, Pokemon Red & Green, and many more .

The four winners of 2022 beat out a tough group of nominees that also included Assassin’s Creed, Candy Crush Saga, Minesweeper, NBA Jam, PaRappa the Rapper, Resident Evil, Rogue, and Words with Friends.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Ms. Pac-Man both made our list of the best 100 video games of all-time at spots #34 and #53, respectively. While Dance Dance Revolution and Sid Meier’s Civilization didn’t make our list (Civ IV did though at spot #35!), it’s hard to overstate their importance in the history of this medium.
