Irrational Games' Ken Levine up for the TIME 100 most influential people
It's that TIME of year again. Yes, the time has come for TIME magazine to select, from the many influential people out there, the 100 who were more influential than everyone else.
Time.com even launched its "2012 TIME 100 poll", giving people the power to start casting their votes for the leaders, artists, innovators, athletes, icons, and heroes that they feel to be worthy above all.
Sure, that's cool and all, but why bother mentioning it on a video game website? The answer to that lies with the fact that among the candidates is a person near and dear to many gamers. That person is Ken Levine, President, Co-Founder, and Creative Director at Irrational Games, who made the gaming world a little happier with his gift of BioShock.
Levine is the only game developer among the many candidates, which include Brad Pitt, Mark Zuckerburg, Jeremy Lin, Tim Tebow, Barrack Obama, the Queen of England, and Anonymous.
Do you think Levine is worthy to be among TIME's 100 most influential people? If so, you can head over to Levine's page on TIME.com and vote for him. Don't dawdle, though. Voting ends next Friday, April 6.
