2012 Game Developers Choice Awards Full List

The 2012 Game Developers Choice Awards, which I find to be the most pretigious annual game development awards (behind our awards, of course), took place yesterday. Portal 2, Bastion, and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim received the most recognition, but many other games were recognized as nominees, particularly Dark Souls and Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
