Posted by TurtleGirl On March - 7 - 2014

BAFTA is delighted to announce that Hideo Kojima, Vice President of Konami Digital Entertainment, will present BAFTA’s Fellowship to Rockstar Games at this year’s British Academy Games Awards ceremony at the Tobacco Dock, London, on Wednesday 12 March.
 

With a career spanning nearly 30 years in the gaming industry, Mr. Kojima is credited with creating and developing the Metal Gear series, one of the first examples of the stealth action game genre. With credits on over 50 games, including influential series such as Snatcher, Zone of the Enders and Boktai, Mr. Kojima has established himself as one of the most influential game developers in the world. Recognised with Lifetime Achievement Awards by MTV and at the 2009 Game Developers Conference, Mr. Kojima was featured as one of IGN’s top game creators of all time. Mr. Kojima delivered BAFTA’s Annual Games Lecture in 2012, the industry’s leading platform from which individuals share their personal vision for the future of their industry; the lecture is now available to view on the BAFTA Guru website, www.bafta.org/guru.
 

Awarded annually, the Fellowship is the highest accolade bestowed by the Academy in recognition of an outstanding and exceptional contribution to film, television or games.
 

As the driving forces behind Rockstar Games, Sam Houser, Dan Houser, Leslie Benzies and Aaron Garbut will attend the British Academy Games Awards ceremony to accept the accolade on behalf of the company. Fellowships previously bestowed for groundbreaking work in games include Gabe Newell, Peter Molyneux, Shigeru Miyamoto and Will Wright.
