The nominees for 2018’s Video Game Hall of Fame have been announced!

Since 2015, the official Video Game Hall of Fame has accepted the world’s best games into their ranks. In past years, they’ve accepted such classics as Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros, Doom, Pac-Man, Tetris, and many others. And many beloved classics have been nominated, but missed the cut, such as Myst, Mortal Kombat, and Final Fantasy.

This year the finalists include games old and new, some well-known, some nearly-forgotten classics.

Let’s look at the contenders:

  • Asteroids
  • Call of Duty
  • Dance Dance Revolution
  • Final Fantasy 7
  • Half-Life
  • John Madden Football
  • King’s Quest
  • Metroid
  • Minecraft
  • Ms. Pac-Man
  • Spacewar!
  • Tomb Raider
