Despite being a much bigger industry than film and music, videogames don’t really get the glitzy awards like the Oscars or the Grammys. The closest are the British Academy Games Awards, which took place in London last night.
Fallout 4 picked up the Best Game award, the first time Bethesda has won the award. Best British Game went to Batman: Arkham Knight, the final game in the Arkham series, and Bloodbourne got Best Game Design. Those three were the only AAA titles to do well, with indie games storming through the other categories. Breakthrough car football hit Rocket League won in the Family, Sports and Multiplayer sections, and 90s set interactive movie Her Story got the awards for Debut Game, Mobile & Handheld and Game Innovation. Slowburn adventure Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture was the recipients of the Audio Achievement and Music gongs.
