Mario made it in the World Video Game Hall of Fame

Hey Gamers and Collectors everywhere.

The Hall of Fame

I'm thrilled to say that Super Mario has gotten a place in the World Video Game Hall of Fame! and with his 30th anniversary approaching, this is a huge deal. There's been a hall of fame for sports, Music and even TV shows. But now we have, The World Video Game hall of Fame. A lot of buzz has been going around about this years finalists, which will be put on display at the strong Museum during a ceremony on June 4 at 10:30 a.m. Some of the many finalists include: Angry Birds, Doom, Super Mario Bros, Sonic The Hedgehog, Minecraft and Pac-Man. There are fifteen finalists for this year, the public is already allowed to begin nominating a game we'd like to see as a 2016 finalist.  Of course the worlds most popular plumber also made it into the hall of fame, but just to see it under that title "Super Mario Bros., Video Game Hall of Famer" is Awesomtacular. The Hall of fame will be stationed at the Strong National Museum of Play's eGameRevolution exhibit, in New York.
