Why Gaming Needs an Oscar

gameplayer writes:
"The Oscars, arguably, are quite shit. They get things wrong far more often than they get them right (Forrest Gump over Pulp Fiction anyone? Thought not) and watching as the pomp and pretense unfolds is as painful as it is strangely compulsive.

It attracts the public's attention to well made movies, kickstarts the careers of quality actors/actresses/directors, and is a real driving force for cinema in general."

It's Hideo Kojima. He would have won them all because he is GOD! I idolize he and Trent Reznor.

I agree video games should have an official and international recognition as cultural and artistic products, and they have to get rewards, but nothing to do with cinema and Oscars.

And i think there are already video game rewards, it just doesn't fit in a ceremony.
