Skyrim brings home Game of the Year at GDC 12

by | @AttackFanboy | on March 8, 2012

Upon officially kicking off the Game Developers Conference, the 12th Annual Game Developers Choice Awards were also announced.  No big surprise winners, but The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim took home yet another Game of the Year award to add to it’s mounting stack of hardware for the title.

Skyrim took home the top honors, but Portal 2 faired well among developers as well.  Valve’s puzzling sequel took home multiple awards in game design, audio, and narration.  Bastion from SuperGiant Games also took home best downloadable title and best debut title.

Todd Howard accepted for Bethesda Game Studios with a portion of the large team that worked on the game.  Howard pointed out that it was a “group effort” in making a game as big as Skyrim.
