Miyamoto received the lifetime achievement award for his efforts in game development and creating some of the most memorable characters in gaming today. Here’s what Miyamoto said when he received the award (cubed3):

“Getting this award makes me feel old and like you want me to retire soon. But I personally feel very young and like I can do this for a long time now. I’ve always had a certain fondness for America and the spirit of America.”

Way to go Miyamoto! Congratulations! You deserve it!

Nintendo also came away with two awards: one for best writing in Twilight Princess, and one for best game design in Wii Sports. Way to go Nintendo! Thanks for two world-class games!
