Randy Pitchford’s Birthday Today

Randy Pitchford, the CEO, president and co-founder of Gearbox Software, turns 38 today. He was born on April 21, 1971. 

He first became known on a global scale for his production and direction of Gearbox's debut title, Half-Life: Opposing Force, the first expansion for Half-Life. There's even an easter egg in the game that pronounces his name backwards.

Other games that Randy has had some hand in are:

Duke Nukem 3D, Duke Nukem Atomic Edition, Duke Nukem 64, Shadow Warrior, Half-Life: Blue Shift, Half-Life for PlayStation 2, Counter-Strike: Condition Zero, James Bond 007: Nightfire, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3, Halo: Combat Evolved for PC, and the Brothers In Arms series.
