Minecraft Is Officially a Video Game Hall of Famer
The World Video Game Hall of Fame has officially inducted Minecraft, joining the ranks of Doom, Halo and the Sims. Other 2020 World Video Game Hall of Fame inductees are Bejeweled, Centipede and King’s Quest. Minecraft was inducted based on being recognisable even to non-gamers and possessing influence on pop culture, as well as its large and creative community. The other titles were inducted for their own reasons and each of them are great additions to the World Video Game Hall of Fame. Minecraft is available for last-gen consoles, as well as Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, mobile, mac and PC.
While the original Minecraft has been inducted into the World Video Game Hall of Fame, it looks like Minecraft Dungeons has a long way to go to join the same ranks. Considering the series has not only expanded into the dungeon crawling ARPG genre, but Telltale created a detailed story of Mojang’s blocky universe and there’s a movie in the works that’s expected to release in 2022. Minecraft has several LEGO sets and the LEGO-like gameplay has been used to both entertain and educate.
The World Video Game Hall of Fame credits Minecraft as “perhaps the most innovative construction toy of all time,” which is one of several aspects of why it was inducted in 2020. This gaming Hall of Fame was created in 2015 as part of the Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester, New York and we think Minecraft belongs in any gaming hall of fame given its role in the industry and how many other franchises it has collaborated with.
