Last night, the BAFTA games awards for 2017 were handed out at a flashy event held at the Tobacco Dock in London, England. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End managed to scoop Best Game, beating out a field that also included Overwatch, Stardew Valley, and Titanfall 2.
It’s not too surprising to see Uncharted 4 grab the award, given its enormously positive critical reception upon its release, and the many plaudits it has received since. The sequel was named Game of the Year at SXSW 2017 just a few weeks ago, and it’s earned similar recognition from various other sources since it hit shelves in May 2016.
Platformer Inside was the biggest winner of the night, picking up a total of four different awards. The game, created by Limbo developer Playdead, was awarded gongs for Narrative, Artistic Achievement, Game Design, and Original Property.
Overcooked and Firewatch also did well, each being given two awards. The co-op cookery game was named Best British Game and awarded the Family prize, while Firewatch was honored as the best Debut Game of the year, and Cissy Jones was given the Performer award for her turn as Delilah.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is available now for PlayStation 4.
