ROCHESTER, New York—The games of the third class of the World Video Game Hall of Fame generated gaming icons, redefined the first-person shooter game, started a monster-collecting craze, and forged the fighting game genre before taking their place in the esteemed hall. Donkey Kong, Halo: Combat Evolved, Pokémon Red and Green, and Street Fighter II have been inducted into the World Video Game Hall of Fame and emerged from a field of 12 finalists that also included Final Fantasy VII, Microsoft Windows Solitaire, Mortal Kombat, Myst, Portal, Resident Evil, Tomb Raider, and Wii Sports. The four inductees span multiple decades, countries of origin, and gaming platforms, but all have significantly affected the video game industry, popular culture, and society in general.
