BAFTA Game Awards 2017

Uncharted 4 picks up Best Game at the BAFTA Games Awards.

Naughty Dog’s PlayStation 4 exclusive was nominated in four categories but had to settle for one award on the night, luckily it was the big one. Uncharted 4 saw off competition from Titanfall 2 and Stardew Valley, among others, to win the Best Game award.

Elsewhere, Playdead’s Inside added to its GDC haul with four awards, winning the BAFTAs for Artistic Achievement, Game Design, Narrative and Original Property.

British indie smash Overcooked delighted the audience by picking up the awards in the British Game and Family categories, and Thumbsticks favourite Firewatch won Best Debut, as well as the Performer award for Cissy Jones’ stunning performance as Delilah.

Brenda Romero was presented with the Special Award in recognition of her creative contribution to the video games industry, advocacy for the creative process, and commitment in supporting young talent. Romero will have to clear some space on the mantelpiece as she’ll also be receiving the 2017 Industry Legend Award at the Develop Industry Excellence Awards in July.

Other winners on the night included That Dragon, Cancer for Game Innovation, and Overwatch, for Multiplayer.

And the BAFTA goes to…
