With over 200 million sold copies, spin-offs such as Minecraft Dungeons, and an overall robust legacy, Minecraft is clearly a seminal game. Now its reputation has been cemented further by the game’s induction into the World Video Game Hall of Fame.

Founded in 2015, the World Video Game Hall of Fame is still relatively young, unlike its music counterpart. It’s part of the Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester, New York. Previous inductees include DOOM, Halo, the Sims and Microsoft Solitaire. Nominating games is an entirely public process, and selection criteria include features such as longevity, reach and ‘icon status’.
