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.

Other winners at the Moscone Convention Center ceremony included DICE's "Battlefield 3" for best technology, Naughty Dog's "Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception" for best visual arts and Capy Games' "Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP" for best mobile game.

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