Portal 2 wins Best Game at the BAFTA’s

/ 7 years ago

Portal 2 won Best Game at last night’s British Academy Video Game Awards. Valve’s comedy puzzle adventure was also the biggest winner of the night, taking home three gongs, the others being for Design and Story.

Portal 2’s chief rival and last year’s role-playing sensation, Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, didn’t win any awards despite being nominated in five categories. Uncharted 3, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Deus Ex: Human Revolution also went home empty-handed.

EA and DICE’s Battlefield 3 won the public vote, taking home the GAME Award of 2011. It also won BAFTAs for Online Multiplayer and Audio Achievement.

In a big night for British studios, Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham City was named the best Action game, Creative Assembly’s Total War: Shogun 2 won Strategy (the third year in a row for the series), Media Molecule’s LittleBigPlanet 2 won the Family and Game Innovation categories and Rare’s Kinect Sports 2 took home the award for Sports and Fitness.
