BAFTA Video Game Awards 2011: Full List Of Winners

Lots of action at the BAFTAs last night, with Mass Effect 2 swooping in and beating off the likes of Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Heavy Rain to win 'Best Game'. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood kicked things off by winning the award for 'Best Action' and David Cage's Quantic Dream opus Heavy Rain took the most awards of the evening with three: 'Story', 'Technical Innovation' and 'Original Music'. Black Ops beat out Red Dead Redemption for the public vote, although lost the multiplayer trophy to Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, with iPhone game Cut The Rope beating off games with far bigger budgets to nail the 'Handheld' award.

Hosted by comedian Dara O'Briain, the awards also saw the 'BAFTA Fellowship' bestowed upon the irrepressible Peter Molyneux, presented to the Lionhead man by Sir Ben Kingsley. Molyneux thanked the gaming community and all of his colleagues before joking that he was 'just the idiot that stands up and says, "Why don't you make a game about theme parks? Or dungeons?"'. He also thanked the gaming press, admitting that he perhaps sometimes overhyped games and invented new features to keep journalists on their toes in interviews. Finally, he thanked his family and paid tribute to an 'incredible' industry.
