A couple weeks ago I asked people to nominate Frogboy for the third annual Edge Game Industry Heroes Award (EGIHA). It is given to 25 people in the industry worldwide that engender respect for the profession and demonstrated superior ability in achieving lasting tangible positive results throughout the year. They are seen as a catalyst of success and inspire confidence and admiration within their peer group and others.
I like to think of the EGIHA as an a combined Olympic & Oscar award for the gaming industry. There is no particular order of rank however. The named recipients are simply considered the best and the brightest the industry had to offer for the given year by the Edge editorial board. I think this is a very nice well deserved honor for Brad and his maverick activities for nearly two decades in establishing and building SD and crafting its alliances within the industry.
Moreover it is also a great testament to team SD as well as team IC for all their hard work this past year. After all a leader is nothing without a solid team of people around him/her and it appears SD & IC have it in spades. This is especially so given the company surrounding Brad on the list. Consequently I say it makes the SD family the biggest little guys out there.
Congrats! Well deserved, methinks.
they should make frogboy a demigod in teh game
Very very nice!! Congratulations to Brad for all his efforts and heartfelt interest. I dont know of any other CEO who cares as much, or shows as much interest in his community as Brad does. Way to go!!

Speech! Speech!!! Where is the speech?
Why would you want a speech? That's the best thing about it all, that he just speaks whatever's on his mind rather than go with flowery and canned speeches!
That is the point. Moreover there are some accolades due to other unnamed or unknown heroes at SD & IC that should be mentioned. That is the funny thing about glory, it is hard to get but very easy to share!
Well, Blair and Craig did get a mention in his description.. I was really kinda hoping they'd get on the list themselves (I nominated them as a single deal, can't really split them up, you know ), but instead we got a game tester who looks like a habitual drunk and an EA guy who looks like he's high.
Huzzah! Congratulations to Brad and everyone at Stardock.
Throughout challenges, it is the right attitude that truly makes the difference.
Yeah I did as well. Well maybe next year after all the x-packs are out and people know them more.
They really should start a blog and do more self promotion things to get more name recognition. I suggest doing more stuff mod related. For example simpyl videos of how to start a mod -etc... Think grass roots baby!
Congrats frogboy, you (and everybody at SD and IC) deserve it!
That idea for the videos is awesome!
Congrats to Frogboy and all of SD for some more well earned recognition.
Speech! Speech! Speech!
*drops a bear*
Be careful with that bear action around here. There are many bear lovers in the woods.
All hail the frog!
congratulations man! you should celebrate by playing Demigod with me!
Did you shower?
You're probably right. What do you think, an acid bath? The goggles, they might do something!
Idk, but I'd feel sorry for the guy that has to give him the bath.
Video tutorials and scenarios is a wonderful idea!! Hope they take it up, or someone does!!
Just don't expect "the frog" to be on that shiny pedestal at all times. In the long run, it's all about business.
I knew I should have made up fake names and submitted him more than once.
I think he should be higher on the list. I mean, some of the names up there are my heroes too (most of them in fact) but they have not been raising the bar industry wide in BOTH game-quality and business practice.
