Ken Levine, one of the most well-known and respected developers in the videogame industry, will be honored at this year's Golden Joystick Awards with a Lifetime Achievement award. Throughout the course of the show's 31-year history, Levine will be the first ever recipient of the prestigious accolade.

Levine's being recognized and celebrated for his body of work spanning System Shock 2 in 1999, through this year's critically-acclaimed (and somewhat controversial) BioShock Infinite. He's currently working on Infinite's two-part downloadable content, Burial at Sea.

"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 videogames 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 upon learning about the award.
