ROCHESTER, N.Y. - The World Video Game Hall of Fame is set to reveal its class of 2017.

The hall named 12 finalists for this year's class in March.

They are: "Donkey Kong," ''Final Fantasy VII," ''Halo: Combat Evolved," ''Microsoft Windows Solitaire," ''Mortal Kombat," ''Myst," ''Pokemon Red and Green," ''Portal," ''Resident Evil," ''Street Fighter II," ''Tomb Raider" and "Wii Sports."

A committee of video game experts and journalists choose inductees based on their longevity and impact on the video game industry and pop culture.
