Sorry Oscar, but it seems nobody cares.
While the 83rd Academy Awards was yet another glamorous and fun-filled night for Hollywood, it appears the majority of gamers just aren't interested in the glitzy award show for the best films of the year. We do have a few ardent movie buffs around here, but they're few and far between, and this is indicative of a rift between gaming and movies. Many just see the Oscars as a time for the obscenely rich to pat each other on the back, but let's not forget one thing- in comparison to movies, gaming is very young…given time, might we see our awards show in much the same light? Might it be just as glitzy and just as respected by those within the industry? While video games have officially gone mainstream, it by no means has the general worldwide appeal of movies; when that occurs, perhaps it'll be time to welcome our own red carpet. And then what will our reaction be…?
Just something to think about. This week, it's all about Dragon Age II and we want to know: who's getting it? And as an additional question – because we're pushing forward with our new video coverage – will you be interested in hearing our commentary on the game? Of course, you can expect our review before the video but we got quite a solid response to our KZ3 video, so…just want to make sure people still like the idea. 😉
