    I mean what else would win the award? Computers have merit to be considered one of the best inventions of mankind.

    It's an interesting one. The PC (as in 'IBM PC compatible') has been an enduring collection of recognised minimum specifications for over four decades. Some would argue that modern PCs aren't compatible with the original specification and they would be right, but over the course it's been more iteratively compatible with earlier hardware and software with very occasional incompatibility breaks managed by software solutions to varying degrees - mostly thanks to Windows and Microsoft's effort to leave no code behind.

    I can't think of any other platform with such an enduring identity.

    Did they just give the PC a participation award in a games ceremony? :/
