Video Game Hall of Fame Inducts Four More Titles

Video Game Hall of Fame Inducts Four More Titles

The Strong Museum’s “World Video Game Hall of Fame” added four more games to their collection of titles that have made a monumental impact on the industry and have served to influence the games we have today.

An Impressive Start

To start off, Spacewar!, which many consider the first video game ever to be created, is now part of the Video Game Hall of Fame. This title was initially created at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and was playable on the PDP-1 minicomputer, while Spacewar! was never commercially sold, it moved many to consider using computers to create a new type of game that had never been seen before, according to the Strong Museums’ Jon-Paul Dyson. The other inductees include the classic football game John Madden Football; one of the first action-adventure titles, Tomb Raider; and the JRPG loved by many, Final Fantasy VII.

These four games came from a pool of various other considerations for the Video Game Hall of Fame. The other games that were up for a spot were Asteroids, Call of Duty, Dance Dance Revolution, Half-Life, King’s Quest, Metroid, Minecraft, and Ms.Pac-Man.

The games are recognized for a number of different criteria, such as icon-status, longevity, geographical reach, impact on design and development of other games, pop culture, and society. A full list of all the different criteria can be found on the Museum’s website.

Screenshots for Kingdom Hearts 3 & Final Fantasy 7 Released

Attendees at this year’s Monaco Anime Game International Conferences got a real treat. The developer behind Kingdom Hearts 3 and the Final Fantasy VII remake, Tetsuya Nomura, showed some brand new screenshots of the highly anticipated titles.

Final Fantasy VII

The first couple of screenshots were taken from the upcoming remake of Final Fantasy VII. They are some awesome action shots of the series protagonist, Cloud in some sticky situations. The initial picture shown is of the hero taking cover behind a box as a Shinra soldier fires at him, presumably in the beginning moments of the game. The photo also highlights how radically different this game will be than the original. New to Final Fantasy VII is the action combat that is very reminiscent of Kingdom Hearts. Although veterans of the series will notice a battle timer that will surely impress old school fans.

The next screenshot of Final Fantasy VII was an action sequence showing Cloud and the gun arm wielding, Barrett, fighting off a spider tank. This is the first boss fight that players encountered in the original release and it couldn’t look more different. Square Enix has also recently revealed that the remake would be an episodic adventure so that every part of the game would be extremely detailed.

Finally, an image of Kingdom Hearts 3 was shown that did the unthinkable, increased the hype even further. In the screenshot the protagonist Sora is preparing to take on a new type of unnamed heartless. He is wearing some new flashy clothes and seems to be preparing some sort of spell to throw at the monster. Kingdom Hearts 3 is over 10 years in development and the hard work shows. The Unreal 4 Engine is a perfect fit for the game and makes the game look gorgeous.

Unfortunately no release date was announced for either game but hopefully it drops by the holiday season this year.
