The National Museum of Play in New York, formerly known as Strong Museum, is home to all things related to playing– and that means video games.

On June 4, the museum held its inaugural ceremony for the first batch of inductees to the World Video Game Hall of Fame, selected from a shortlist of 15 from an advisory committee made up of journalists, scholars and game historians.

The six games inducted were Pong, Pac-Man, Super Mario Bros., Tetris, Doom, and World of Warcraft, all staples on early gaming platforms.

That’s all fine and dandy, but that means they left out The Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong, Sims, and Oregon Trail. WHERE IS THE JUSTICE?
