2020 BAFTA Games Awards: All The Winners Rounded Up

2020 BAFTA Games Awards: All The Winners Rounded Up

Even a country-wide lockdown couldn't stop the glitz and glamour of the annual BAFTA Game Awards. The industry event went ahead via livestream last night, in a much-needed evening of celebration and appreciation for all the incredible games that released last year. There were some well-deserved wins - as well as a few surprising losses.

Let's start with the big one. On a personal level, I'm genuinely thrilled that Mobius Digital's sublime outer space exploration adventure Outer Wilds won the coveted Best Game award last night. It was my favourite game of 2019 by some distance, and I don't think nearly enough people have played it yet. Hopefully this win can go some way towards rectifying that.


What's even more impressive is the company that Outer Wilds managed to beat off. Control, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Untitled Goose Game, Luigi's Mansion 3, and Disco Elysium were all up for the top spot. All would have been thoroughly deserving of the award of course, and each one is well worth checking out if you haven't already.

Despite both being up for an amazing 11 nominations earlier this year, Remedy's Control and Kojima's divisive Death Stranding ended up going home with one award apiece. The latter nabbed the prize for Technical Achievement, while the former won Performer In A Supporting Role, courtesy of Martti Suosalo.

In fact it was a huge night for indie games in the end. Outer Wilds won Original Property and Game Design in addition to Best Game, while Disco Elysium took Music, Narrative, and Debut Game. They were the only games to get more than one award each, which is incredible given the stiff competition.
