Counting this year’s games, 20 titles now make up the Hall of Fame’s honorees, including the likes of Doom, Pac-Man, and The Oregon Trail.

As always, this latest batch of inductees was whittled down from a list of 12 finalists like by a committee of 27 journalists and video game scholars. This year’s voting process however notably included a “Player’s Choice” option that compiled a 28th ballot comprised of the top three games selected from an online poll.
