The VERY FIRST VIDEO GAME is not in the hall of fame yet?

Well that's a pretty reasonable list if you ask me. Madden is definitely a case of wtf is this doing here but overall I feel like most of them deserve to be there.

I'd say that Half-Life, Minecraft, Metroid and Ms. Pacman really stand out. I expect Minecraft to take the spot though.

While I think all these games are well deserved inductees, I would probably put Ms. Pac Man above the rest

I voted for King's Quest. That game has a special place in my heart.

ifnkovhgroghprm for life.

I don't understand how CoD deserves to be there, it was a pretty straight continuation of what the Medal of Honor series started, which in turn was not a good direction for FPS to begin with.

I went ahead and voted for the original Half-Life. If Super Metroid was included I probably would've picked that, but the original Metroid? Ehhhhh.
