Final Fantasy and EverQuest will be joining the ranks of the gaming elite for this year’s induction into the Walk of Game. Since 2004, the Walk of Game, featured in the Metreon complex in San Francisco, has been commemorating the gaming industry’s most valued icons and developers.
Each year, gamers worldwide vote on their picks for the top four Games/Characters and top two Lifetime Achievers, who are then honored with a 24”x24” steel star along the Walk of Game. Both Final Fantasy and EverQuest are being honored this year for their innovation as well as their impact on the industry and their respective genres.
A press and industry-only event will be held on March 16 at the Metreon complex for the 2006 inductees. More information on the inductees can be found on the official site, including the other games and characters being honored as well as the two Lifetime Achievers for this year.
