The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time leads induction into the 2022 World Video Game Hall of Fame
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has been officially 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 inducted since the inception of the World Video Game Hall of Fame at New York’s The Strong National Museum of Play in 2015.
The 10 best N64 games of all time
So far the list includes games like 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 2022 winners edged out a strong 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 it to #34 and #53 on our list of the 100 Greatest Video Games of All Time. While Dance Dance Revolution and Sid Meier’s Civilization didn’t make our list (Civ IV made it to #35 though!), it’s hard to overstate their importance in the medium’s history.
For more, check out Super Smash Bros. Brawl, where Ocarina of Time made our list of the best N64 games of all time, how a speedrunner beat the game in under 4 minutes, and how an early demo for OoT differed from the final version.
