Skyrim and Portal 2 lead GDC Award nominations

The nominees for this year's prestigious Game Developers Choice (GDC) Awards have been announced, with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Portal 2 leading the pack.

Voted annually by industry professionals, the ceremony will take place on March 7th 2012 during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, representing some of gaming's most prized accolades.

Bethesda's smash hit role-playing title and Valve's comedic puzzle action game both received five nods each, in categories such as best game design, best audio, best technology and best narrative.

Both titles were also named in the game of the year category, alongside superhero sequel Batman: Arkham City, hardcore role-playing action title Dark Souls and sci-fi shooter epic Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

Other titles to receive multiple nominations included acclaimed games like Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, LA Noire and Battlefield 3.

Last year, Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption dominated the awards, claiming the game of the year prize as well as three other gongs.
