Newell Entering AIAS Hall-of-Fame

The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences (AIAS) announces the D.I.C.E. Summit is now underway at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, gathering "the best and brightest minds from the interactive entertainment industry." The festivities will include a pioneer award for the creators of Zork and the hall-of-fame induction of Valve's Gabe Newell:

  • Hall of Fame Inductee: Living video game legend, Gabe Newell, president and co-founder of Valve Corporation, will be the 17th inductee into the AIAS Hall of Fame. Recipients demonstrate the highest level of creativity and innovation, resulting in significant product influence on a scale that expands the scope of the industry. The AIAS Hall of Fame honor is annually bestowed on game creators who have been instrumental in the development of highly influential games and moving a particular genre forward, and Gabe’s leadership in founding and managing Valve, creator of SourceTM game engine, Steam, and award-winning game franchises like Half-Life®, Counter StrikeTM, Left 4 DeadTM, PortalTM, and Team FortressTM have done much to push the interactive entertainment industry forward.
  • Pioneer Award Recipient: Infocom co-founders Dave Lebling and Marc Blank will be honored with the 2013 AIAS Pioneer Award, which is reserved for individuals whose career-spanning work has helped shape and define the interactive entertainment industry with the creation of a technological approach or the birth of a new genre. As innovators, storytellers, game designers and programmers, Lebling and Blank have inspired a generation of gamers and game designers over a broad spectrum of games and genres with their contributions to interactive fiction and text-based adventure games such as the Zork and Enchanter series.

Valve created Counter-Strike and Team Fortress did they? That's news to everyone else. Even L4D is stretching it. So really, besides Half-Life and Portal, what other games have they created?

Dunce NO PORTAL IS FROM FULL SAIL COLLEGE STUDENTS

Yes, it was called Narbacular Drop. Pretty cool and free.

They did make the mod Richochet. I think it was included with the "new lag system" patch, an epic moment in gaming history.

I was hoping the dunce, the caps, and the incorrect school would properly convey my satirical barb but I hoped for too much.

... Or are you being cute too?

Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

Steam, all on its own, would make valve/gabe worthy of being inducted into just about anything thats even faintly related.

Yes he does.

Didn't we already congratulate him on this a few months back?

In any case, Gabe is well-deserving. Congrats, Gabe!
