The Walk of Game was a year-round attraction in the United States honoring the icons and pioneers of the video game industry, and was located inside Metreon, an entertainment shopping center in San Francisco, California. It noted the most influential game characters of that year.

Gamers worldwide cast their votes through paper ballots and online submissions at the Walk of Game website during a one-month voting period. Ballots were held during October in the years 2005 and 2006. No additional ballots have been opened since; as such, the practice appears to have been discontinued. The top four games/characters and two lifetime achievers were honored with a permanent, 24"x24", customized steel star on Walk of Game.[1]

The attraction was deliberately similar to Hollywood, California's Walk of Fame, as suggested by the similar name and customised floor tiles.
