BAFTA Game Awards 2016 winners

bafta game awardsLast night in London, the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television ArtsGame Awards took place, on an evening hosted by Irish comedian Dara O’Briain. Loads of awards were handed out, and the majority of them were certainly deserved. Fallout 4 took home the ultimate winner, but it was a night for the indie developers, and you can’t argue with the winners.

Fallout 4 won Best Game, whereas titles like Rocket League from Psyonix beat other titles to the punch in multiple categories, including Family, Multiplayer and Sports titles. Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture picked up a few awards too, and with its announcement of a PC release on the way, more people will be able to enjoy that soon.

John Carmack won the Fellowship award, and in his acceptance speech said “I don’t like to romanticise the past. I’m more excited about the opportunities available now than anything there’s ever been before. Thanks for this award, but I’m just getting started.”
