SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — "Portal 2" leapt over the competition to win the most trophies at the Game Developers Choice Awards.

The witty sci-fi puzzler developed by Valve Corporation topped the 12th annual extravaganza Wednesday with three awards, but it was Bethesda Softworks' role-playing saga "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim" that took home the night's top prize. "Portal 2" won trophies for best game design, narrative and audio, while "Skyrim" was honored as game of the year.

Selected by a jury of game creators, the Game Developers Choice Awards honor the best games of the past year.
