Destiny Shocks Everyone To Take Best Game At The BAFTA Gaming Awards


So I literally just got in from the BAFTA Game Awards ceremony. I have a ton of cool interviews to bring you over the next few days, so look forward to that.

For now though, I will update you with all the winners. It was a pretty wild night with no real correlation. I think that made it even more exciting.

Here is a full list of the winners. It's pretty clear that BAFTA were spreading the wealth, with only Monument Valley and The Last of Us: Left Behind winning more than one award.

Best Music: Far Cry 4
Best Artistic Achievement: Lumino City
Best Game Innovation: The Vanishing of Ethan Carter
Best Audio Achievement: Alien: Isolation
Best Sport: OlliOlli
Best Mobile/Handheld: Monument Valley
Best Multiplayer: Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft
Best Original IP: Valiant Hearts
Best Performer: Ashley Johnson
Best Game Design: Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
Best Story: The Last of Us: Left Behind
Best Family: Minecraft Console Editions
Best Persistent Game: League of Legends
Best Debut Game: Never Alone
Best British Game: Monument Valley
Best Game: Destiny

So, Destiny. It's the real surprise here taking the Game of the Year, but honestly, I can get behind it. I don't think it's the best game of the year, but I think it's one of the least recognised for its quality. I'm happy to see Bungie walk away with it, even if I know many people will be eating their hats in rage right now.

Really though, Dragon Age: Inquistion not getting a single award feels a little…'wrong.'
