BAFTA Game Awards 2016 – See The Winners Here

by : Ewan Moore on : 07 Apr 2016 17:40


The BAFTA Games Awards kick off tonight, hosted by comedian Dara Ó Briain and boasting a fantastic selection of nominations. If the evening proves anything, it’s that it was a fucking great year for videogames. 


Of course, a quick shout out to John Carmack, lead programmer on gems like Doom and Wolfenstein 3D, who was honored with a (very much deserved) BAFTA fellowship award. We owe that guy hours upon hours of awesome memories.

The awards show is now over, but we’ve got a round up of all the winners (and by extension, losers) for you to look over right here and disagree with. Enjoy…
