SM. Pac-Man and Legend of Zelda join the World Video Game Hall of Fame

Four iconic video games have been inducted into the World Video Game Hall of Fame: SM. Pac-Man, Dance Dance Revolution, La leggenda di Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and Sid Meier’s Civilization.

All four gameshave influenced popular culture and the video game industry,” secondo a dichiarazione dal World Video Game Hall of Fame, which is hosted at The Strong National Museum of Play a Rochester, New York.
      SM. Pac-Man in particular is crucial to video game history because of its inclusion of a female protagonist, says the World Video Game Hall of Fame.
        Il gioco, rilasciato in 1981, built on the unexpected success of the original Pac-Man, a Japanese arcade game designed with the goal of being less violent than popular games at the time.
          “SM. Pac-Man promoted and signaled the broadening of game play across the genders. There was nothing inherently gendered about early video games, but the coin-op industry certainly advertised them that way,” Julia Novakovic, senior archivist at the World Video Game Hall of Fame, ha detto nella dichiarazione.
          By offering the first widely recognized female video game character, SM. Pac-Man represented a turn in the cultural conversation about women’s place in the arcade as well as in society at large.

The high-fantasy Zelda universe remains popular, with a sealed copy of one early version of The Legend of Zelda selling for $ 870,000 nel 2021.
