Ken Levine to be receive a lifetime achievement award at this year's Golden Joysticks

And it will be the first lifetime achievement award given out at the Golden Joysticks

Irrational Games' Ken Levine is to receive the first ever lifetime achievement award at this year's Golden Joystick Awards.

Levine has indeed had a glittering career creating compelling and believable worlds and narratives in games from System Shock 2 right up to this year's incomparable BioShock Infinite. He's even been described by Guillermo del Toro as "one of the best world creators in any of the visual forms".

“In most fields, people begin their careers being inspired by others. In turn, they hopefully end up inspiring others. The great thing about the still-maturing nature of video games is you get to be inspired by the work of novices and veterans alike. We're all figuring out day by day exactly what the medium is capable of,” Levine said. Ken Levine to be receive a lifetime achievement award at this year's Golden Joysticks
