Shigeri Miyamoto infinite creativity has reached new heights over the years. There is no ending the amazing talent and creativity this gaming god has to offer. In the mist of the release of the Wii U, Miyamoto was surprised by an announcement he received stating the following:
"With these creations, he has converted the video game into a social revolution and has managed to popularize it among a sector of the population that had not previously accessed this kind of entertainment, while also making it a medium capable of bringing people together regardless of sex, age or social or cultural status. Shigeru Miyamoto conceives games as an element for family and social integration, an experience that can be shared by all which manages to move players and help them express their emotions."
The humble creator was surely surprised! He replied with the following statement:
Creating video games is very much a team effort, which is why I feel so humbled to be chosen for this honourable award. I would therefore like to receive the award on behalf of all of my friends and colleagues with whom I have been creating video games over the years.
I will continue my efforts so that video games will continuously be able to offer fun and joy to people of all generations all around the world."
I think this is a good thing as video game creators are getting more recognition. They have been here for a long time now and not only is video games considered an art nowadays but it's becoming part of everyone's daily lives. Long gone are the days of the secluded nerd, we are all here and we aren't going anywhere! Hooray for my hero, Shigeru Miyamoto! ^_^
