Video Game Hall of Fame adds ‘Halo: Combat Evolved,’ 3 more

Attention Halo Nation, “Halo: Combat Evolved” is in the World Video Game Hall of Fame.

The science fiction shooter game that enthralled a legion of fans after its 2001 launch with the Xbox system is one of four games to be inducted into the hall Thursday. “Donkey Kong,” ″Pokemon Red and Green” and “Street Fighter II” round out the young hall’s third class of honorees.

All will be on permanent display at The Strong museum in Rochester, New York, where the hall of fame was established in 2015 to recognize an industry that the Entertainment Software Association said generated $30.4 billion in revenue in the U.S. last year.

“Until ‘Halo’s’ launch, the most successful shooters required a personal computer and the precision offered by a high-quality mouse,” said Strong Associate Curator Shannon Symonds. “‘Halo’ proved a console could be just as effective, if not better, than a PC.”

More than half of the Microsoft Xbox consoles initially sold included the launch game and players gave it high marks for its intricate storyline, characters like Master Chief and multi-player capability. The self-described “Halo Nation” of fans that emerged bought up 6 million copies, along with sequels, spinoffs, books and action figures.

An international committee of video game scholars and journalists chose the World Video Game Hall of Fame’s class of 2017 from among 12 finalists that also included: “Final Fantasy VII,” ″Microsoft Windows Solitaire,” ″Mortal Kombat,” ″Myst,” ″Portal,” ″Resident Evil,” ″Tomb Raider” and “Wii Sports.”

Inductees were chosen based on their longevity and impact on the video game industry and pop culture. Nominations of arcade, computer, console, hand-held and mobile games came in from more than 100 countries, The Strong said.

Twenty years before “Halo,” fellow inductee “Donkey Kong” was a star of arcades and at the time of its 1981 release, Nintendo’s most profitable game to date. Even more notable than its sale of an estimated 132,000 arcade cabinets is the game’s launch of the plumber character Mario, who led the spinoff “Super Mario Bros.” into the hall of fame’s inaugural class.

Another Nintendo entry, “Pokemon Red and Green,” was released on the Game Boy in 1996 as “Pocket Monsters.” With the catchphrase “Gotta catch ’em all!” players were challenged to collect 151 unique monsters, which soon migrated to 21.5 billion trading cards, 800 television episodes and 17 movies.

“‘Pokemon Red and Green’ launched a franchise that has taken the world by storm, vaulting many of its characters, such as Pikachu, into popular, mainstream culture,” Symonds said.

Capcom’s “Street Fighter II” is credited with helping to spark an arcade renaissance in the 1990s, The Strong said.

The game “allowed for head-to-head battles between human opponents, instantly attracting spectators and generating fierce tournament play in arcades across the world,” said Jeremy Saucier, assistant director of The Strong’s International Center for the History of Electronic Games.

Nominations for the World Video Game Hall of Fame’s class of 2018 are open.

Hey Katie. Was trying to convince some people MVC:I could still work but they're focused on Dragon Ball FighterZ's flashy graphics and chaotic gameplay. They also bitched about DLC in Infinite when DBFz will no doubt do the same damn thing. Wonder how camel hump taste?

Considering Marvel vs Capcom Infinite doesn’t come out until September, I think it’s still too early to make the call. As for the comparison, I wouldn’t think much more of it outside of salty DBZ fans being salty. Look at the comments section of the latest Death Battle. 18 beat Captain Marvel and what happens? DBZ fans piss and moan about how 18 was apparently low balled even though they gave her an ability that was never displayed in the show before.

As for Infinite itself, again, still too early to call….having said that, I can’t say that I’m impressed with what’s been shown.

No, it’s not because of the roster, the bland, under-detailed aesthetics, or Chun-Li apparently having her head shrunk. Again, the game doesn’t come out until the end of summer and there’s plenty of time to fine-tune it until then. Rather, I have some other problems.

Let’s talk about the roster itself. First, let’s get the obvious out of the way. Notice something…odd about the lineup? For starters, there are 24 characters. Not a bad number. No, it really isn’t. Granted, it wasn’t MvC2 numbers, but still solid all the same. So what’s the problem? One word; unbalanced.

For starters, there are (so far) a total of 24 characters…and only four of them are women. Wow. Talk about a sausage party. And please, spare me any “Well there’s less women because no X-Men” guff, because there are plenty of female characters from Marvel AND Capcom to choose from that have nothing to do with the X-Men. Many of whom were in MvC3! She-Hulk, Jill Valentine, Tron Bonne, and Crimson Viper just to name a few. And that’s to say nothing of the Marvel or Capcom characters who haven’t been in a MvC game yet. Where’s Black Widow? Or Ada Wong? Or Scarlet Witch? Spider-Woman, half the characters from the Megaman Battle Network games, I could go on and on.

But when I say the roster is unbalanced, I’m not just talking about the ratio of men to women in the game. I see lots and lots of heavy hitters and power players, then a sprinkling of some fast and loose characters. Ask @hesjayrich for a more in-depth analysis on fighter types, but short version is that yeah, it looks pretty lacking in fighter variety. Especially since it’s a safe bet that returning characters will play similar if not identical to previous games.

And finally (last bit about the roster, promise) like Injustice 2 (who the fuck was asking for Captain Cold?) some of the roster choices themselves are just…baffling. They make sense for the most part. Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and Thor all have movies coming up while Doctor Strange, Gamora, and and Rocket Raccoon were all just IN movies and if Capcom has proven one thing it’s that they’re not behind chasing trends, so it makes sense that Capcom would want a piece of the MCU pie. Which also explain why Thanos, Ultron, and the Infinite Gauntlet are all involved.

Same goes for the Capcom side. MegaMan X has been in demand for a long time so his presence along with Zero and Sigma are a no brainer, Chun-Li and Ryu have been main-stays since X-Men vs Street Fighter and because God forbid that Capcom make a fighting game that doesn’t constantly remind you that they made Street Fighter, Dante was a fan-favorite from MvC3, and of course Chris Redfield is there because everyone is still laughing at him punching the boulder.

Soooooo why the fuck are Nova and Nathan Spencer there? I guess I can kind of understand Nova given his loose ties to GotG, but Nathan? Nobody likes Nathan Spencer! He’s from one of Capcom’s worst games of recent memory and tied to a plot twist so stupid that it makes “Save Martha” look clever in comparison.

Next, the story. Okay, so Thanos has apparently been defeated and is being held prisoner by the Avengers, in which they have to form an uneasy alliance with the rise of Sigtmatron…or is it Ultroma? Man, fusions are weird. In any case, I can get behind that…..so why are they holding Thanos in Avengers Tower, of all places? This is the guy who bitch-slapped Galactus and has both Odin AND Zeus in fear of him! I think it’s going to take just a little more than a holo-wall to hold him!

Also, really? The Hulk nails an Ultron-drone right in the face and it just falls over? He’s the Incredible fucking Hulk! That drone should have either been sent flying or completely obliterated! Meaningless nitpick, I’ll grant you, but still.

Ugh. I hate to sound pessimistic, and realize that again we’re still a long way from release, but so far? Yeah. Not really impressed.

Here’s hoping.
