WIRED - Videogames Are Award-Worthy—But They Don't Need Award Shows.
"The problem is that videogames are inherently an unstable medium. What it means to "create" a videogame is constantly in flux, and the staggering breadth of options available to game creators—in terms of technology, style, and content—continues to expand. Instead of than being one medium, the videogame industry is recombinant, pulling together elements of film, music, installation art, even theme park design, all held together by the duct tape of creative vision. You can see this tension in the genre divisions within The Game Awards' categories: what differentiates "Best Action Game" from "Best Action/Adventure Game"? Why is there one category for mobile games but none for any other platform? And what does the existence of a "Best Independent Game" award say about the relationship between independent and big-budget gaming?"

I'm going to go the other direction. If playing video games is considered a fucking professional sport then video games get award shows. As many as they want, because we've already passed stupid ideas and gone into "Fuck it we're doomed" territory.

Nothing needs an award show. Especially fucking actors who already have a few dozen a year. Rolleyes
