Shigeru Miyamoto, one man, is equal to ALL of google. dat is some swag
Miyamoto deserves the award more than anyone in the game industry.
Yeah, I know that athletes can be considered role models for the general public. I just don't see why. They're not changing the world, saving any lives or influencing people with any sort of messages. They just....chase balls...or jump over hurdles or whatever...
Yea chew on that SEGA... o wait
i dont want to be a fanboy or nothing but this man deserves GOD STATUS!!!
They adhere to the possibilty that some atheletes could, in fact, be role models. Which is actually a probably scenario. Nonathletic nerds are kinda sad sometimes (as opposed to nerds that actually enjoy playing sports).
It is for some people. Some very pathetic people. lol
Because, apparently, people chasing balls all day can be considered "role models". >_>'
If anyone in the industry is deserving of this award, it's him.
Is this seriously necessary?
COngrats Miyamoto,You deserved it!
Suck IT, Sony
Today, the award and tomorrow, the WORLD!!!
Why is sports one of them? Last time I check people go ape shit for soccer...
Up your ass, Walt Disney.
