Video Game Legends To Be Inducted Into Hall of Fame

killdashnine writes “Last year we discussed the creation of the International Video Game Hall of Fame and Museum in Ottumwa, Iowa, and a first event in 2009 which brought 3,500 people to witness it. Since then, there’s been much progress toward creation of the museum, including the upcoming ‘Big Bang 2010′ exhibition. Their first event kicks off with formal induction ceremonies, tournaments, record-setting attempts, and an array of concerts from 8-bit music to modern rock. This serves as the first official fundraiser for this new non-profit. Iowa is positioning itself as the Video Game Capitol of the World. While some sneer and scoff at this, pointing to LA or Seattle as gaming giants and rightful heirs to the title, the real goal is not to glorify software developers but rather to memorialize the ‘heroes of video games,’ from the iconic Pac Man to pioneers such as Ralph Baer.”
Here’s a list of this year’s inductees. Who gets your vote for next year?
