Ian Livingstone awarded OBE for services to gaming

Ian Livingstone of SCi Entertainment is an industry legend whose involvement in gaming dates back thirty years to Dungeons and Dragons. Many people remember him fondly for his Fighting Fantasy adventure books, written with Steve Jackson, but Livingstone has been going from strength to strength at Eidos and SCi since then.

In recognition of all this, he joins Peter Molyneux (among others) by being awarded an OBE for services to the computer games industry, showing that a lifetime of making a career out of a hobby can definitely pay off.
