LORE teaches us about Gabe Newell's past in a little over a minute

A team of animators and laugh-makers who call themselves LORE have released an adorable video telling the lore behind Valve's founder: "the man, the myth, the Gaben" known as Gabe Newell.

Every week LORE releases a new animation telling the lore behind a facet of the video game world, such as the lore of Ninja Gaiden, Pikmin, Chrono Trigger and more. Each video summarizes the history of the subject in less than two minutes using cherubic graphics and a really fast voiceover.

LORE's other videos can be viewed on its YouTube channel.
