BAFTA announce British Academy Game Awards winners

The British Academy Game Awards took place on Thursday night, seeing BAFTA crown the industry’s successes over the past year in a star-studded ceremony at London’s Tobacco Dock.

Actor and comedian Rufus Hound presented proceedings, where 51 games were nominated across 17 categories. Nintendo sadly went home empty handed, with Mario Kart 8 being unable to win any of the Wii U exclusive’s four nominations across the Audio Achievement, Best Game, Family and Multiplayer categories – the Nintendo 3DS itself being rudely snubbed from any nominations.

Destiny was the surprise winner in the Best Game category, while Mario Kart 8 was denied elsewhere by Alien: Isolation, Minecraft: Console Editions and Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft.
