Destiny and David Braben were big winners at last night’s BAFTA awards. Bungie’s shooter was dubbed the best game by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, while Elite creator Braben received the Games Fellowship.

Blizzard’s Hearthstone was honored as the best multiplayer game. Riot’s League of Legends won for best persistent game.

Hear that thumping, slightly hollow sound?
That’s my head repeatedly making contact with the desk in front of me. The desk, so far, is losing.
As others have said, clearly ‘Best game’ means ‘Biggest budget and/or profit’, and has less to do with quality and innovation…

When a 1 vs 1 card game gets the best multiplayer title, then you know the industry is in grave danger lol

crawlkill It’s industry members rewarding each other, much like pretty much every other mainstream awards show. Any relevance to the real world is purely accidental (and usually short lived).

Anecdotal is anecdotal though. I personally couldn’t stand it past level 10 but I have lost like 10 gaming friends and guildies to it and they don’t even come up
For air anymore. Each kne has a max level of each class and spends all day playing it and will hear no bad about it.
It’s weird, maybe I just dodged the hook. Same for Diablo 3 though, it seems to be the same type of hook.
