Fallout 4 wins best game at Bafta game awards 2016 – Details
- Updated: April 11, 2016
Fallout 4 wins “Best Game” at 2016 BAFTA Games Awards.
According to BAFTA, open world role-player Fallout 4 was the best game of last year. It overcame its somewhat mixed reception to see the franchise win for the first time at the BAFTAs, after having previously being nominated six times.
Going into this year’s BAFTAs, Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture led the field with 10 separate nominations. In the end it only won three though, for Audio Achievement, Performer (for Merle Dandridge as Kate Collins) and Music.
Despite barely featuring in most other end of the year awards the British-developed Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture saw suggestions of a bias by BAFTA towards UK-made games.
By comparison the critically-acclaimed Bloodborne, by Japanese developer From Software, only received one nomination; although it did win in its category for best Game Design. Nintendo’s Splatoon had three nominations but won nothing on the night. Polish-made The Witcher 3 had seven nominations and also won nothing.
Interactive movie Her Story, by British creator Sam Barlow, earned seven nominations going into the event and won in three categories: Debut Game, Game Innovation, and Mobile & Handheld.
Rocket League was the other big winner of the night, picking up awards for best Family Game, Multiplayer, and Sport title.
The full list of winners are here, but Batman: Arkham Knight won for best British Game, while the UK-made Until Dawn won for best Original Property. Less controversially, Ori And the Blind Forest won for Artistic Achievement and Life Is Strange won for best Story.
The awards event was hosted by Dara Ó Briain, and also saw John Carmack presented with a BAFTA Fellowship.
Carmack has had a highly influential career working at id Software, on games such as Wolfenstein, Doom, and Quake, and is now chief technology officer at Oculus VR.
