Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?

You can vote for your favorite here. According to the site, “The three games that receive the most public votes will be submitted on one ballot and will join the other top-three submissions from members of the International Selection Advisory Committee. The public will collectively act as one member of the committee.”

Starting in 2015 the first two years six games were added, since then four make this list every year. So far the list includes the likes of Sonic the Hedgehog, World of Warcraft, Super Mario Kart, and Minecraft among a total of 28 games.

The final inductees will be announced on May 6.
