Valve's superb puzzle-platformer, Portal 2, swept home with three victories at last night's British Academy Video Game Awards, coming out on top for Best Design, Best Story, and snatching the coveted best Game Award too.
Kudos should also go to EA and DICE, as Battlefield 3 also went home with three awards, winning trophies for Online Multiplayer and Audio Achievement, as well as leading the pack in the public vote, and winning the GAME Award.
Our own Game of the Year for 2011 - Skyrim - left empty-handed, despite being nominated in five categories, and there were no triumphs on the night for the likes of Uncharted 3, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, or Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
