The Walk of Game is a path of stars in the same vein as Hollywood's Walk of Fame. This year's recipients were Nolan Bushnell, Shigeru Miyamoto, Link, Halo, Mario and Sonic. There were a few highlights. Bushnell used the opportunity to ask the game development community to help educate kids. It was heartfelt, and seemed like a good venue to talk about it. Then there was the Shadow the Hedgehog announcement, of course.
