In the final, System 3-sponsored award of last night’s GMAs, Gary Penn, one of the founding fathers of games journalism, was the first journalist to be entered into the GAME Media Awards hall of fame.

Penn has since had spells at number of developers in the games industry, and now works for Denki.
