A first place trophy.


Alex Rhodes has a roundup of the winners from the BAFTA GAmes Awards 2021.

Let’s start with the big announcement… Hades has won Best Game at the 2021 Bafta Games Awards. It’s a greek god and goddess-themed roguelike where you try to escape from hell… by hacking your way through randomly generated dungeons. Sounds like fun for all the family.

It also won 5 other awards… including Game Design.


Fans voted for The Last of Us Part 2 as Game of the Year, but after being nominated for a record 13 awards… it won just 3.


Sony’s accountants will be very happy, as Playstation exclusives... from Ghost of Tsushima to Spider-Man: Miles Morales took away nearly half of all the awards on offer… and Sackboy: A Big Adventure, a game named after my award-winning performance in 2007, won best British Game


You can find the full list of winners on, but with such an in-depth analysis from me, you barely need to. And if you’re listening BAFTA, obviously your email asking me to host the ceremony was lost in cyberspace, but I’m happy to do it for you next year, at great expense of course. Or maybe if you can just get me a Playstation 5. Either or.
