Maybe you are plugged in and research this kind of stuff, but for me, I just like to play games and then recently have enjoyed digging into behind the scenes and back stories of those games.
Today, I wanted to find out more about Todd Howard. Who is this guy? Well, it turns out he has led the development of some of my favourite games of all times. You may have heard of some of them like “The Elder Scrolls” and “Fallout” series.
He is an executive producer and a director currently at Bethesda Game Studios. He has won awards and been on lists such as IGN’s “Top 100 Game Creators Of All Time”. He won the award for “Best Game Director” by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences in 2012. He also won “Lara of Honor” which is a German award for lifetime achievement in gaming.
This man is truly talented and we all owe him a huge thank you for giving us hours and hours of entertainment.
Todd Howard has created five consecutive “Game of the Year” award winners with the following games:
- The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
- The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
- Fallout 3
- The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
- Fallout 4
This is an accomplishment that only a few others have achieved.
