Skyrim helps Bethesda score at the VGAs
Skyrim beat off a impressively accomplished field to secure the Game of the Year Award at Spike TV's 2011 Video Game Awards.
The latest Elder Scrolls title took the award ahead of Portal 2, Batman: Arkham City, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception which is no mean feat. Of course, each of aforementioned titles took the platform-specific Game of the Year Awards on their respective platforms with Batman winning for the Xbox 360 and Portal 2 scoring the PC gong.
Bethesda also scored Studio of the Year while Skyrim scooped up RPG of the year as well.
Portal 2 netted the acting awards with Stephen Merchant and Ellen McClain willing the male and female performance awards for their roles as Wheatley and GlaDOS. Valve's latest also won best multiplayer and best DLC for its Peer Review pack.
