World Video Game Hall of Fame to announce class of 2017”

The most recent additions count "Pokémon Red and Green", "Street Fighter II", "Donkey Kong", and "Halo: Combat Evolved".

These four games will join the inductees from previous years. Fifty percent of Microsoft's original Xbox's were purchased along with a copy of "Halo", and the success of Microsoft's first console is owed to the game.

While anyone can nominate a game to the World Video Game Hall of Fame, a group of journalists, scholars, and other people familiar with the history of video games make the final selections.

Strong Associate Curator Shannon Symonds told the Associate Press that Halo: Combat Evolved truly raised the bar for what we could expect from a console shooter game. But Donkey Kong is also about much more than one character.

Donkey Kong, released in 1981, was Nintendo's most profitable game to date.

Robert Plant Fuels Led Zeppelin Reunion Rumors
It's worth noting Led Zeppelin reunited once before in 2007 for the Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert at the O2 Arena in London. Frontman Robert Plant has sent fans into a frenzy by posting three little words on his site: 'Any time now'.

The final inductees were "Pokemon Red" and "Green" versions, or as they're known in the U.S., "Pokemon Red" and "Blue".

The Video Game Hall of Fame is a platform where some of the video game industry's most influential and iconic titles are recognized for their contributions.

Street Fighter II (Arcade, 1991): "Street Fighter II allowed for head-to-head battles between human opponents, instantly attracting spectators and generating fierce tournament play in arcades across the world". That it managed to beat out its biggest '90s competitor, Mortal Kombat, should speak volumes, considering both were very popular throughout the entire decade. With "Pokémon Go" dominating 2016, Pokémon remains just as culturally present today as it did in 1996.
