Video Games Killed the Hollywood Star

Kotaku points
us to a petition to get Hollywood to consider video games for the Walk of Fame. To this we respond: No.

There are enough animated characters (see picture) on the walk as it is. In fact, we think there should be a moratorium on new stars on the walk right now and some new rules established (like you need to be over 50 or dead to get a star).

We have nothing against video games, we just think Sonic the Hedgehog doesn't deserve the same accolades as Johnny Carson, Lucille Ball and Sydney Poitier.
