Chris at World of Meh asks this: Does celebrity exist in the gaming industry? If not, how can it?
9/10 celebrities involved in gaming are a total embarrassment, just look at this years VGAs.
While I do agree with you about the VGA reference (because that was a complete disaster), those "celebrities" weren't from the gaming industry. They were from film, television, and music. Chris is referring to how there aren't any proper celebrities who are from the industry itself. Sure some people know who Hideo Kojima is, or Shigeru Miyamoto, but in terms of having widespread popularity, there really isn't anybody nor are there any household names. Is this because most of the developers are the stereotype and have introverted personalities? Perhaps.
