BAFTA most nominated Skyrim leaves empty-handed17 Mar 2012
This evening the Videogame BAFTAs were dished out in London and surprisingly Skyrim didn’t manage to pick up a single gong despite five nominations in multiple categories.
Battlefield 3 won the GAME Public Award after 234,000 votes were cast and Portal 2 picked up Best Game, Best Story and Best Game Design.
I doubt Bethesda are shedding any tears over the results, the game has sold bucket-loads and the fans love it and that’s all that matters.
The winners ended up as follows:
Best Story: Portal 2
Best Original Music: LA Noire
Best Audio Achievement: Battlefield 3
Best Design: Portal 2
Best Game Innovation: LittleBigPlanet 2
Best Strategy: Total War: Shogun 2
Best Mobile & Handheld: Peggle HD
