Nintendolife writes: "there can be no denying that the video games industry creates the kind of social impacts that are not dissimilar to those found in the TV, film, and music sectors. It seems fitting that the British Academy of Film and Television Arts has been hosting separate award ceremonies for the video games industry since 1998. After all, the line between the two art forms seems to be getting thinner with each decade that passes, with "interactivity" often being the main difference."
"Since it was announced last month that Nintendo's legendary game designer Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong among many other beloved series', would be the recipient of the Academy Fellowship at this year's British Academy Video Games Awards, we here at Nintendo Life have been delighted that recognition of his work has been awarded at such a prestigious event. May there be plenty more gems of imagination that get turned into instant-favourites and looked back on as classics. [glasses raised]"
