Nice, I didn't know something like this existed.

I still think a list out of only 80 games is a bit too short to give credit to all of those innovative games that deserve it. But then a much larger list wouldn't make sense either.

Maybe they should have merged specific sequels to make more room for individual innovative games. I mean, 9 out of 80 titles are Super Mario and Zelda.




That's not a bug, it's a feature!

I'm guessing because it's not considered art? Lol. A fighting game,is more like a sport...when you compare it to wrestling or boxing,do you really consider Sports an Art?

Doing fatalities to your opponent,winning against your buddies,being the best of the best in ranking matches....really sounds more like a sport than art where only visual-wise some of the recent fighting games have improved a lot over the years. But that's about it.

Take Earthworm Jim for example,I'm sure anybody could just say,oh yeah its one of those side scrolling games...which is true,but Earthworm Jim stood out as a unique game compare to all the other side scrolling games,it definately had a weird,strange vibe but still funny,and the more the player kept going further into the game,it kept getting weirder and harder and so on.

I mean,yeah one way or another regardless of genre,the player has to win in order to beat the game altogether,but it's how the story,the visuals,and the sound altogether that make that game what it is...and not just Some other game.

I still think MK should make the list. it put fighters on the map way back when and it inspired killer instinct which was epic on the snes.

I think and this is my opinion that if theres going to be a hall of fame for video games, it shouldn't just be about viuals and sounds and such it should be based on popularity originality story fun factor and so on.
