Earlier this month at the Game Developers Choice Awards, Deus Ex and Epic Mickey designer received a Lifetime Achievement Award for his contributions to the gaming. This Mega64 tribute to Spector featuring Epic's Cliff Bleszinski aired during the program. I'm surprised they didn't take the award back on the spot.
The nominees for the 2012 Game Developers Choice awards have been announced. The awards, which will be held at March's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, are one (if not the) most prestigious awards ceremonies in gaming. They occur the same night and location as the Independent Games Festival (IGF) awards.
