The BAFTA Game Awards are one of the highlights of my calendar each year, and the award show I put the most stock in, as it's amazing to see an organization like BAFTA really going whole hog with support.
The awards took place last night, and it was a pretty surprising night all told. Her Story and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture had big nights with three wins each, while Fallout 4 walked out with the Best Game award. And beyond that, the game that has been winning it all prior, The Witcher 3, walked away with nothing.
