Just a month ago, BAFTA announced the nominees for their videogame awards. Now that the show’s over and the winners known, a couple of them might be questionable to some, but they seem spot on for the most part. The big winner was Super Mario Galaxy as Best Game, while COD4: Modern Warfare walked away with three, including Game Award of 2008, the only publicly voted on award. Finally, in a much deserved moment, Nolan Bushnell, founder of Atari, walked away with the coveted Video Games Fellow award.
The complete list follows below. If you are one of the winners, congratulations… pop the Dom and munch some caviar. Not on the list? Enjoy your Cheetos.
