BAFTA Games Awards 2021 brought a whole lot of people together for its seventeenth showcase tonight. From all corners of the globe, developers, designers, artists and players have banded together to support an overwhelming year of gaming. And now, to celebrate the achievements of millions of talented studios, BAFTA has compiled a mouth-watering roster of teams with eighteen individual awards to dish out.
Of course, The Last of Us: Part II evidently cleared the house with the majority of the nominations beforehand. However, the BAFTA Games Awards served up a whole lot of surprises tonight, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results. But what do you think? Were these winners really “winners” in your eyes?
