You probably don't know Elizabeth Tobey. She didn't voice an outrageous character or design an outlandish weapon in any video game you're currently enjoying. But she did, legitimately, have a hand in the creation of —or at least stirring up the desire for—two big 2K Games hitting shelves right now. And she didn't get the credit she deserved.
Tobey was a longtime 2K Games community officer (going back to 2006—basically when 2K Games was formed) and, full disclosure, her dog cameoed in a Kotaku 'Shop Contest earlier this year. In the spring, she moved on from 2K to Trion Worlds for a better gig, before the release of two big games she was working on for 2K—Borderlands 2 and XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
