Gongs: BAFTA Video Game Award Winners

The weeping face of a Rockstar fan statue.

Games had their BAFTAs tonight – the British equivalent of the Oscar (in the same way as Diggerland is the British equivalent of Disney World) – and prizes were awarded. It’s super-fabbo that BAFTA recognises games in this way. As much as I’ve written stupid things all the way through this, it’s a mark of legitimacy that is welcome. But who won what, you demand to know, slamming your fist down on the table, scaring a child. For goodness sake, calm down. They’re below.

The esteem in which they're held.

I don’t know how to tie a bowtie, so I wasn’t there this evening. But by the magic of copying it off another website, I’m able to provide you all the winners. (Not literally, of course – despite appearances, I’m not a shop.) Red Dead Redemption is conspicuous in its absence, but it seems this may be because of a temper tantrum Rockstar have thrown after GTA IV didn’t win anything last year, meaning they refused to enter RDR this year. Well, that’s what people have told, anyway. I imagine they’d be the people to sue were that not true.

Anyhow, games that you can play on PC gave a fair showing. So… /rustles envelope.
