BAFTA Game Awards 2018 – All the winners revealed

Yesterday, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Game Awards 2018 took place in London. I always like to see which games win some awards to see if I agree or disagree and what games that I might not have played yet might be worth giving a go. In this year’s BAFTA Game Awards, there were some surprising results.

One of the games I haven’t personally played but that my colleague Han absolutely adores is Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice and she called it the most important game she has ever played. Hellblade walked away with a whopping five awards out of the possible 16 and since the game is out on the Xbox One as well now, it looks like it is definitely something everyone should take a closer look at.

The “Best Game” award is one of the most surprising for me, as What Remains of Edith Finch won the award. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great game and I recently played it on PS4, but it took less than three hours to complete. The game was developed by Giant Sparrow and does have a very powerful story, or rather, stories. You see, What Remains of Edith Finch is a collection of tales about a family living in Washington State, US. You play as Edith, the only living member of the family, who explores the Finch family house and search for stories about her family’s history and how they met their demise. There are some deeply rewarding and harrowing tales in the game and I did thoroughly enjoy the experience, but was it really the best game of 2017?

Congratulations to all the winners of the BAFTA Game Awards 2018. Although some of the results, most noticeably for me the “best game” winner, might be a bit surprising, I am sure they are all well deserved. Maybe it’s time to play some of these games if you haven’t already.
