Philatelic Recognition

    Concept »

    To commemorate the significance video games have in our culture, they occasionally appear on national postage.

    Short summary describing this concept.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Stamp collecting is as much of a cultural institution as many of the topics and people it features as artwork. To be "immortalized" on a stamp is not only a significant achievement for creators, or a source of postal revenue from collectors, but an increased level of public awareness for the medium at large.

    (When linking this concept to other pages, remember that franchises are typically recognized more often than specific games, and the concept must be attached from there.)
