Like every year for 18 years, the English BAFTA ceremony yesterday followed in the footsteps of the Game Awards and the Pégases to celebrate the video game creation of 2021. A sober and lively ceremony, which was not content to reward the same titles as other such events.

Even if a big winner is emerging, with four trophies won, the academy has brewed wide and made sure to give way to a whole variety of titles which have made 2021 a year full of beautiful surprises.

BAFTA Game Awards: the list of winners

Many hoped that it would dethrone It Takes Two to the rank of supreme award at the Game Awards, and his revenge is taken! Returnal , the Housemarque box which has since been bought by Sony , leaves with four awards, including Best Game of the Year.

A decidedly more varied list, or one which in any case gives more space to more “modest” projects, but which contributes to portraying our favorite medium in all its diversity.

The ceremony, which lasts just under 2 hours, can be viewed below (we spared you the pre-show).
