GameGeex - Geek Morning America: What game would you give an Oscar to? It's an award show mashup game. Which game do you think deserves an Oscar?

Good morning Geex!  Last Sunday saw the movie industry fawn over itself in order to give out awards for film's best performances.  As a gamer, I naturally thought "what game would I give an Oscar to?" 

So let's play a game.  Tell me which game you would give your Oscar to.  Any game, any year, the best of the best.  If you could hand out a little gold statuette to your favorite bit of interactive entertainment, what would it be? My answer?  World of Warcraft -- this tiny little game released back in 2004.  I don't know if you've heard of it.

What's your answer?   Best response gets a gif of a sandwich. I would send a real sandwich, but it would probably get soggy in the mail.

Dang, that's a hard one. I want to dip back though and hit a game that truly moved me the first time I played it, Chronotrigger.

Good question. Though I gotta agree with Mavlock on Chrono Trigger. It was just amazing the first time around

I love Chrono Trigger as much as the next Geek, but I don't think I would give it an Oscar. Maybe a Life Time Achievement Award with a video montage or something. My Oscar would go to The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past as the most polished example of my all time favorite series.

I would give it to Blizzard as a company, Peter Molyneux as a visionary. It's so hard to limit myself to one game... I would love some independent title, maybe Dwarf Fortress?

Giving an Oscar to a video game? Hmmm... Ugh.. lol so many to choose from.

LA Noire - for innovative technology in video game motion capture acting
