BAFTA Games Awards 2017: Uncharted 4 takes best game as Inside wins big

Uncharted 4 Bafta Best Game
Uncharted 4 won best game at the video game Baftas 2017

A trend of the biggest blockbusters walking away with the best game award as indie hits clean up in the other categories continued last night at the latest Bafta Games Awards.

Uncharted 4 took home the biggest prize of the night, with Nathan Drake's fabulous final adventure recovering from missing out on its other seven nominations to land Best Game. Uncharted follows in the footsteps of 2016's Fallout 4 and Destiny in 2015. The game's producer Arne Meyer took to the stage to accept the award, calling it 'unexpected' as he paid tribute to the game's cast Nolan North, Troy Baker and Emily Rose, all of whom had been pipped to the best performer award by Firewatch's Cissy Jones.

Firewatch had been successful earlier in the night, with the fascinating wilderness tale winning best debut for developer Campo Santo. But it was Playdead's Inside that took home the most awards, picking up four gongs for Narrative, Game Design, Original Property and Artistic Achievement.

Inside won four awards

The fantastic culinary co-op game Overcooked won Best British Game and Best Family, but was beaten to Multiplayer by Blizzard's hugely successful FPS Overwatch.

Elsewhere, there were notable awards for innovation for That Dragon, Cancer; an honest, heart-rending game made by a father dealing with his son's last days with the disease. British-made narrative game Virginia won best Music for its essential and brilliantly judged score, while The Last Guardian's ethereal ambiance netted it Audio Achievement. The huge success of Pokemon Go lead to Niantic's phenomenon winning the Best Mobile Game award.

At the end of the night, veteran developer Brenda Romero won a special award for her long-standing contribution to the industry. "I remember when Bafta started recognising video games, " Romero said as she collected her award. "To me, that was the single most important move in our entire industry for recognising us as an art form."
