Ken Levine is the creative director of Irrational Games, and was one of the primary designers and writers of the 2007 classic Bioshock. Now, he’s a candidate for one of the most influential people in the world.

Originally working with Looking Glass Studios on Thief: The Dark Project, he went on to co-found Irrational Games and worked on System Shock 2 and Bioshock, both of which are considered milestones in the areas of interactive storytelling and atmosphere. He’s also working on the highly anticipated sequel Bioshock: Infinite set to release this October. Just recently, Time Magazine put him on a potential list of candidates for their list of “100 Most Influential People in the World.” He’s currently in the voting process, with 71.2% of people saying he should be considered.

This is a great opportunity to help a gaming auteur get recognized and solidify the status of games as an art form. I highly suggest you vote for him, which you can do so here.

Now an occasional contributer, Michael Urban is the former Editor-in-Chief at OnlySP and has the nickname "Breadcrab" for reasons his therapist still doesn't understand. From the moment he first got hacked in Runescape, he's been uninterested in multiplayer games and has pursued the beauty of the single-player experience, especially in terms of story and creative design. His hobbies include reading, writing, singing in the shower, pretending to be productive, and providing info and feedback regarding the games industry. It is an industry, right? You can ask him a question or send him spam at michaelurban@onlysp.escapistmagazine.com. Also, follow him on Twitter or the terrorists win. (@MichaelUrban1)
