For the second consecutive time, Mortal Kombat has been chosen as one of the nominees for the Walk of Game. Metreon, a Sony Entertainment Destination, is indicating the place of video games in modern entertainment with this annual award for electronic entertainment. The Walk of Game is similar to the Walk of Fame in Hollywood, in that it honors games with a walkway plaque, to be installed in the San Fransisco Metreon. This award is surely an honor to any game inducted into it's hallowed halls. During the entire month of October, cast your vote and put Mortal Kombat up with other past inductees that have changed the video game industry for the better, including such franchises like Mario, Zelda, Halo, and Sonic the Hedgehog. From the site:

Walk of Game is the first-of-its-kind landmark honoring the icons and pioneers of the videogame industry.

Walk of Game is located inside Metreon, a 350,000 square-foot entertainment complex at Fourth and Mission Streets in the heart of downtown San Francisco.

Every year, gamers worldwide cast their vote on to induct the next set of honorees to receive a permanent 24"x 24", customized steel star on the Walk of Game. From the list of nominees, the top four in the category of Games/Characters and the top two in Lifetime Achievement will be inducted. Inductees to date are: Nolan Bushnell, Shigeru Miyamoto, Halo, Link (The Legend of Zelda), Mario, and Sonic The Hedgehog.

The list of nominees is compiled from a survey of industry members and technology, entertainment, and gaming media. SCA Interactive, a leader in online promotions, powers the Walk of Game voting interface.
