    There's a ton more older games that should have gotten in way before WoW. Either based on historical value (Donkey Kong, etc) or based on just being way better games (Zelda: Link To The Past, some of the best Final Fantasies, Baldur's Gate, etc).

    Edit: Arggghh just noticed the timestamp. :)

    Is there a one game per series rule? There are other Marios and Zeldas that belong in the HoF as much as or more than the originals. It'll be a shame if the good but flawed original LoZ blocks Link to the Past from ever getting in. Or the most historically important, but not even close to best Mario game blocks 3, World, and 64 from ever getting in.

    Mortal Kombat is worthy.

    I thought Solitaire should've been on the first ballot.

    Really, the first ballot should have been it, Pong, and Tetris. Nothing else.

    *I suppose Spacewar! should be included as well. But since it wasn't even nominated until last year, I've just assumed there was some internal debate over its eligibility. Otherwise, that strikes me as a huge oversight.
