And the BAFTA Games Awards Go To...

By Leon Hurley on at

The gaming version of the BAFTAs happened last night and here's all the winners. Destiny got best game, David Braben got the fellowship award and OlliOlli also nabbed the Best Sports game which makes an interesting change from FIFA.

The awards seem to be a good spread of artistic and mainstream games this year, with only Monument Valley picking up more than one award (Best Mobile and Best British Game). The rest seems to be games that had a recognisable impact rather than titles that were simply the biggest. OlliOlli beating out FIFA and Madden for example, or Shadow Of Mordor winning Best Game Design. While the competition for the latter was strong against stuff like Alien: Isolation (which won Best Audio Achievement), HearthStone, Far Cry 4 and Destiny, you could argue that only Mordor introduced anything new with its Nemesis system.

Here's the full list of nominees with the winners highlighted:
