Newell gets GDC award

Newell gets GDC award

Valve co-founder Gabe Newell will be honored with the Pioneer Award as part of the Game Developers Choice Awards. The award is given to honor “those individuals responsible for developing a vital technology or game design at a crucial juncture in video game history, paving the way for the many who followed them.” Newell started Valve in 1996, after leaving software giant Microsoft.

The Choice Awards Advisory Committee, which includes such industry luminaries as Ben Cousins (EA DICE), Harvey Smith (Arkane), Ray Muzyka (BioWare), and Clint Hocking (Ubisoft), selected Newell due to his contribution to creating the digital distribution service Steam, which has played home to Valve’s line of top-rated hits such as the Half-Life series and Portal as well as an increasing number of third-party PC games.

Newell will receive the Pioneer Award as part of the Game Developers Choice Awards at this year’s Game Developers Conference in San Francisco on March 11.
