Batman: Arkham Asylum wins Best Game at the Baftas


batman bafta

and Uncharted 2 pretty much takes the rest 😀 well not quite. But it took home four awards, including Best Action Game. Both Batman and Uncharted were outstanding games of last year and it’s nice to see them get the recognition they deserve over the more highly selling games like Modern Warfare 2. Though unsurprisingly Modern Warfare did take GAME’s user’s choice award – proving once again that people shouldn’t be allowed to think for themselves. Other notable winners include Flower for Artistic Achievement and a surprising win for PSP title Little Big Planet, beating out Professor Layton and Scribblenauts.

It’s not like you needed anymore reason, but seeing as it just won four Bafta’s, why not join the Dpad Dependency team on Uncharted 2sday’s for some seriously fun, award-winning action 🙂
