The Video Game Hall of Fame has expanded its esteemed list by adding five new inductees that have significantly influenced the gaming industry and culture. This year’s selected games illustrate the technological, narrative, and artistic evolution within the industry. They served as benchmarks for future games, impacting the way modern games are designed and played.

These games have had far-reaching cultural implications, showcasing innovative approaches and pushing the boundaries of interactive storytelling, graphic design, and immersive world-building.

However, certain impactful titles like Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and Metroid didn’t make the cut due to stiff competition. Despite not making the list, these games still played major roles in their respective genres’ evolution. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater transformed sports gaming, while Metroid broke new ground with its narrative and gameplay.
