What do Vernon Kay, light entertainer extraordinaire, and Stan Lee, the daddy of Marvel comics, have in common?
"I love games." That's what Stan Lee says. Quizzed about the future of gaming by the BBC at Activision's E3 press conference, Stan said, "I think that all of entertainment is coming together, it's sort of homogenising. You're gonna have comic books, you're gonna have cartoons, movies, television, videogames and music - they're all becoming one thing." Maybe Smilin' Stan Lee could replace Joker-grinning Bobby Kotick at the head of Activision-Blizzard.
That's what Vernon Kay says.
And don't we all feel validated by the appearance of celebrities at gaming events?
