Dishonored wins Best Game Bafta at 2013 video game awards

Dishonored has been named Best Game at the 2013 British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta) video games awards.

The first-person action title is set in a historic plague-ridden city in which the player uses special powers and swordplay to seek revenge on enemies.

Its developer Bethesda made a joke apology to Brits for the way it had spelt the game's name.

Journey - a PlayStation title lacking words and enemies - took five awards (Industry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

First off "Its developer Bethesda made a joke apology to Brits for the way it had spelt the game's name." It was not developed by Bethesda.... Not sure why it reads like that above when it doesn't say that in the article.... The article states it correctly as Arkane Studios. It was a decent game, but wasted Game of the Year by any means in my opinion.

Great game, definitely one that was inspired by Thief, since some of them used to make Thief games.
