Skyrim wins GOTY at annual GDC awards

Bethesda RPG takes top honor, Portal 2 and Bastion score as well

Posted on
This week, Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim took the coveted Game of the Year award, capping off the 12th Annual Game Developers Choice Awards in San Francisco.

Elsewhere in the ceremony, the evening’s multiple award winners were Valve’s puzzle adventure Portal 2, which received three awards, for Best Game Design, Narrative and Audio. Action-RPG Bastion from indie developer Supergiant Games also took home two Choice Awards, those for Best Debut and Best Downloadable Game.

EA DICE and their Frostbite 2 engine used in Battlefield 3 earned the Best Technology award, while Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 3 snagged the Best Visual Arts award.

Finally, the Innovation Award went to Johann Sebastian Joust, Die Gute Fabrik’s no-graphics, physical party game designed for PlayStation Move motion controllers where players must jostle their opponent’s controller while protecting their own.

The Game Developers Choice Awards, which honor the very best games of the year, was created for and voted on by developers. Winners are selected by the Game Developers Choice Awards-specific International Choice Awards Network (ICAN), which is an invitation-only group comprised of 700 game creators from all parts of the video game industry.
