Tomb Raider has been short-listed to feature in The Strong's World Video Game Hall of Fame in Rochester, New York. 15 finalists were selected from thousands of nominations and final inductees will be unveiled during a special ceremony at The Strong museum on Thursday, May 5, 2016.

"These 15 World Video Game Hall of Fame finalists span decades, gaming platforms, and countries of origin-but what they all have in common is their undeniable impact on the world of gaming and popular culture," says Jon-Paul C. Dyson, director of The Strong's International Center for the History of Electronic Games.

"Whether it's an iconic game like The Legend of Zelda, a pioneering educational title like The Oregon Trail, or an innovator like Elite, which forever changed the design and development of other games, they're among the most influential games of all time."

The World Video Game Hall of Fame at The Strong recognizes individual electronic games of all types-arcade, console, computer, handheld, and mobile-that have enjoyed popularity over a sustained period and have exerted influence on the video game industry or on popular culture and society in general.
