Todd Howard will receive GDC Lifetime Achievement Award


Since he began working at Bethesda Softworks in 1994, game designer Todd Howard has had a noteworthy career in the games industry. So much so that he will be given a lifetime achievement award the Game Developers Choice Awards.

His first design credits began with The Terminator: Future Shock, but his first assignment at the studio was to test the CD-ROM version of The Elder Scrolls: Arena. He would then go on to make The Elder Scrolls, one of the most noteworthy RPG franchises to date starting in 2002 with The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind which he directed. Not only that, but he would use the formula from Elder Scrolls to make 2008’s Fallout 3. Todd Howard holds the rare honor of having won Game of the Year for three games in a row with The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Fallout 3, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

The award will be presented at the GDC Awards on Wednesday, March 16 at 6:30 PM PST.
