The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences has named the legendary Gabe Newell as the next inductee into their Hall of Fame.

The AIAS Hall of Fame honor is bestowed on those game creators who have been involved with the most influential of games and those that help to push forward both gaming and genres. These individuals show brilliant creativity and innovation and can influence and expand the scope of the industry.

The announcement makes Gabe Newell the 17th inductee to join the AIAS Hall of Fame and earns him the title for 2013. He’ll be joining the likes of Sid Meir, John Carmack, Shigeru Miyamoto, Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuck amongst others in the AIAS Hall of Fame.

Gabe Newell’s leadership of Valve and work on games such as Portal, Team Fortress 2 and Half-Life have done much to push forward the entire industry.

The President of Epic Games, Mike Capps, is to present Newell with his award at the 2013 DICE Awards.

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,” Capps says.

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.
