I had hoped, given that we’re very nearly a third of the way through this year, that the big awards ceremonies that dish out accolades to games from the year past had come to an end – mostly because I’m tired of seeing The Witcher 3 win everything, as deserved as it is.
Well, there are more awards yet – and the British Academy of Film and Television (and not games) has dished out awards to games. And The Witcher 3 has won…nothing. Not a thing. The most awarded game in the history of the medium lost out to…Fallout 4. In addition to besting The Witcher 3, Fallout 4 beat Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, Life is Strange and Rocket League for the statue.
Life is Strange did get an award for Best Story, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture took home three awards, and Rocket League won three too, but The Witcher and Metal Gear left empty handed.
Here’s a list of the nominees, with the winners bolded.
