http://www.goodgearguide.com.au/article/340306/batman_arkham_asylum_better_than_uncharted_2_betcha_says_baftas/The British Academy of Film and Television Arts awards are interesting to watch because they usually pick all the games that didn't win awards in the U.S. True to form, the 2010 BAFTA Video Game Awards will surprise you with who went home empty-handed.
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves led with nine nominations. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 had eight, Batman: Arkham Asylum seven, and Assassin's Creed II followed with six. Assassin's Creed was shut out just as it was at the Game Developers Choice Awards and the DICE Summit. Arkham Asylum and Modern Warfare 2 managed to wrangle key awards away from accolade powerhouse, Uncharted 2, with Best Game ultimately going to Arkham Asylum. Also Scribblenauts didn't win in the handheld category -- now, there's a shocker.
The other significant BAFTA award went to Shigeru Miyamoto in the form of a BAFTA Fellowship. According to the Academy, this is the first fellowship ever awarded to a Japanese person in any entertainment medium recognized by the organization.
Personally, we don't mind that Batman pipped Uncharted 2 to the post -- as we noted in our most overrated games of 2009 feature, Uncharted 2 was far from perfect, despite some cool (scripted) action sequences. So three cheers to the Brits for choosing a solid action adventure game over story-driven hype. Anyway, that's our two cents done with.
Do you think that UC 2 was all hype? Did BM:AA derserve to pick up the biggest accolade of the night ahead of UC 2?
