Well-deserved. Go, Miyamoto!

Agreed, he definitely deserves this, but I wish they did this at E3 rather than the VGA's. Sorry to anyone who thinks otherwise, but they are a joke. I'm pissed that they didn't even let him or Kojima speak in their native language. Did you see how much trouble Kojima had trying to speak? He couldn't understand the word "Revengeance" cause it's not even a real word.. Stupid show is stupid. They made Kojima look like a fool. Tonight's show was awful. But I do honor Miyamoto, he is an amazing man, would love to meet him some day.

Really? Then atleast the hall of fame award for Zelda deserves it.. Dunno, I'm sensing that in the next few years it will become controversial.. But I wish it doesn't.

hurray for the man, and to the Zelda series too! ~

But getting an award from the VGA's is like me giving him toilet paper.

I was almost crying when he went up there! He seemed so happy about his baby getting into the hall of fame. A great moment :)

Yea me too. Then he started talking and I couldn't understand a word he said. He had one of those very thick accents.

Is this the first game in it or was this Hall of Fame thing already started?

This was the first Hall of Fame award. Infact Spike TV said before in a press release that it was only fitting to start with the Zelda franchise
