BAFTA Award Winners announced: Destiny wins Best Game

Jonathan Lester

The BAFTA Awards took place last night, as you'll probably know from the huge number of obnoxious tweets and selfies doing the rounds from retailers and publishers. However, it's all about the games and developers as far as we're concerned, and the winners are an interesting mix indeed.

Everything from The Vanishing Of Ethan Carter to Monument Valley, Valiant Hearts, Never Alone and League Of Legends got their due recognition. The Last Of Us: Left Behind scored big with two awards for story and performance, whereas Alien: Isolation slunk back with just the one award despite seven nominations. Either way, though, it's a list that shows a more considered and thoughtful approach that the likes of Geoff Keighley's nonsensical farce.

The only potentially conversial pick, however, is Destiny as 'Best Game.' Was it? Was it really?

I'm going to leave that one with you... for now. Check out the winners below, and remind yourself of the nominations here.
