500 game developers came together to choose the winners of this year’s Game Developers Choice Awards, which were announced and presented at the 25th Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

Rockstar Games’s Red Dead Redemption was named Game of the Year, but that wasn’t the only award this title received. It also won Best Game Design, Best Technology, and Best Audio.

Minecraft, the sandbox game by Mojang, won three awards: Best Debut Game, Best Downloadable Game, and the Innovation Award.

Bioware’s Mass Effect 2 won the award for Best Writing, Chillingo’s Cut The Rope won Best Handheld, and Playdead’s Limbo won Best Visual Art.

Peter Molyneux was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award, while Yu Suzuku received the Pioneer Award.

On an interesting note, Minecraft also won the Seumas McNally Grand Prize from the Independent Games Festival, at its 11th annual awards ceremony. This is the first time a game has received an award at both GDC and IGF in the same year.
