Posted on October 31, 2012 - 7:22pm by Fundertaker

Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of innumerous Nintendo franchises and one of the (if not the) greatest videogame creator of all time received yet another career recognition award, this time the prestigious Prince Of Asturias award in the "Communications and Humanities" category.

The award was established in 1981 and quickly became more than a Spanish thing, with many people and organizations from around the world receiving it for their efforts and contributions in different parts of society. Like the Nobel Prize, there are many categories in it, like Arts, International Cooperation, Literature and Sports. Miyamoto was awarded in the "Communications and Humanities" category, which in the past has honoured the Royal Academy, the web search engine Google, the National Geographic Society, CNN, former Czech Republic president Václav Havel, Italian writer and philosopher Umberto Eco and many others.

So, what do the g1s think of Miyamoto's presence in the such a "elite" group of people and organizations?
