Valve’s Gabe Newell Earns a Spot In the AIAS Hall of Fame

Well earned, if you ask us.

Gabe Newell has been making waves in the industry for quite some time now, with plenty of projects that put his team at Valve in the spotlight – including Portal 2 and Left 4 Dead 2.  But now he’s getting the honor he truly deserves, as he’s joining Shigeru Miyamoto, John Carmack, Michael Morhaime, Dr. Ray Muzyka, Dr. Greg Zeschuck, Tim Sweeney and a few others in the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame.

In addition to receiving the award at the yearly DICE Summit, he’ll also be a speaker during Thursday’s conference.  The award will be presented by Epic Games president Mike Capps.

“Gabe is a living legend of the video games industry, and his relentless focus on customer experience has made our whole industry a better place,” said Capps.  “Valve’s unconventional success is an inspiration for us all, and I couldn’t be more pleased to present Gabe’s Hall of Fame award.”

Congrats, Gabe, you earned it!
