All of these games will be on permanent display at The Strong museum in Rochester, New York.

What this means, however, is that other nominees didn't make the cut, those being Final Fantasy VII, Solitaire on Microsoft Windows, Mortal Kombat, Portal, Myst, Resident Evil, Wii Sports, and Tomb Raider.

For those unfamiliar, the World Video Game Hall of Fame was created in 2015 to acknowledge the incredible accomplishments of the video game industry over the years. The original Xbox title was remastered for the Xbox 360 back in 2011, and the game was later included in the Xbox One compilation Halo: The Master Chief Collection released in 2014. According to The Strong, Halo proved that first-person shooters aren't exclusive to PCs; they can work just as well on a gamepad controller.

The 2017 inductees, the Hall of Fame's third class, joined video game staples such as Super Mario Brothers, Pong, Tetris, the Legend of Zelda and Space Invaders.

"Halo: Combat Evolved" was the first game in the massively popular "Halo" franchise.

After the decline of arcade gaming in the 80's (when the industry started to shift toward home consoles), Capcom's 1991 phenomenon "Street Fighter II" revitalized the arcade culture upon its release. Donkey Kong, along with Pokémon Red and Green, are now officially recognized by the organization for their impact on the gaming industry and community. In total, an estimated 132,000 Donkey Kong arcade cabinets were sold by Nintendo. While the game popularized street fighting, it also sparked one-on-one arcade tournaments. The game challenged players to collect 151 unique monsters, and Nintendo coined the ubiquitous catch-phrase, "Gotta catch "em all!"

The World Video Game Hall of Fame is an worldwide hall of fame that opened on June 4, 2015. With "Pokémon Go" dominating 2016, Pokémon remains just as culturally present today as it did in 1996.
