Gabe Newell (also known as Gaben)  is the co-founder of Valve corporation, and creator of the Half-life series. He is moderately famous on the internet for his controversial views on console gaming, his large physique, and relation to Valve series such as Portal, Left 4 Dead and Half-Life. Since he has delayed announcing the release of Half-Life 2: Episode 3, or even a sequel to Half-Life 2, he is often depicted as a troll.
Gabe Newell was born on November 3, 1962. He dropped out of Harvard University to work for Microsoft. In 1996 Gabe Newell and Mike Harrington, another Microsoft employee, dropped out of Microsoft to, and used their profits to found a video-game studio, Valve. After a meeting with John Carmack, co-founder of id Software, they decided to license the Quake engine to create their first game, Half-Life. Gabe has since been working on other Valve series such as Portal.
