Gaben Phenomenon?[edit]

Gabe Newell has become an extremely popular man, an icon of the PC gaming industry. Along with this status there has been a proliferation of content related to this (especially using the alternative "Gaben", which is based on his email, GabeN@valve). The use of this alternate name is so ubiquitous that it actually seems to pop up in a news/blog article by accident (http://www.extremetech.com/gaming/142896-valve-confirms-steam-box-coming-in-2013-says-it-will-compete-with-next-gen-consoles).

A few examples of extremely popular video/audio content related to this phenomenon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdeY1v6jC7Q http://www.gabenewell.org/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tsHkpesBdY

One can see the influence of this phenomenon almost everywhere in the PC gaming community. I feel it is relevant to this article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.181.89.74 (talkcontribs) 23:09, 30 March 2013 (UTC)

Under External Links, Interviews, https://ia701205.us.archive.org/20/items/SevenDayCooldown-Episode1Gaben/Episode1-Full128-Final.mp3 should be referenced as having been interviewed by SevenDayCooldown Irishspuds (talk) 06:32, 17 August 2014 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: please establish a consensus for this alteration before using the {{edit semi-protected}} template. Don't see why this particular interview should be listed. My searches for SevenDayCooldown have not been very convincing as they don't seem to be very big and their website is defunct Cannolis (talk) 06:40, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
