These are the first eight games to enter the NWR Hall of Fame.
Several months back we asked our staff and Patreon supporters, who pledge at least five dollars a month, to submit their top 10 votes for the first ever Nintendo World Report Hall of Fame. The rules for the selection process were simple. Titles submitted were supposed to be must play masterpieces on Nintendo platforms filled with brilliance, layered with innovation, and topped with magnificence. These games also had to be at least five years old.
The initial list of submissions included 77 different titles ranging from Game & Watch Ball (1981) all the way to Xenoblade Chronicles (2011). We then asked the Voting Board to pick out their favorite 15 games from this giant list and came up with the top 15 games selected by everyone.
This final list was then taken to a one last vote where the Voting Board had to select between four and eight titles they felt were worthy of the prestigious NWR Hall of Fame. If these games received at least a 50% approval rating from members of the Voting Board they would go down in history as some of the greatest pieces of software ever to hit Nintendo platforms.
Well ladies and gentlemen, the results are in. I present to you the NWR Hall of Fame Class of 2016!
