This evening saw all the big hitters in the gaming industry convene in London, UK, to cheer on (or curse) their counterparts at the 2011 BAFTA Video Games Awards. Megabits of Gaming was watching the ceremony... here are the winners!
Heavy Rain wins big - shame about Limbo though!
Mass Effect 2 was a deserving winner but nothing for Halo: Reach or Gran Turismo 5.
Super Mario Galaxy 2 wins best gameplay award - very well deserved IMO.
I feel like super mario doesn't really take risks. It's gameplay is something that is so simple it cannot suck.
Have you tried it? The wii mote is amazing for mario games. The story is the same yes but the gameplay never. But on another note no love for rdr? What!?
Risks? Have you even played it?...lol. No game has ever played like it. No game has even 20% of the creativity. The controls, physics, animation, sound, etc are extraordinary. 241 stars of excellence. Super Mario Galaxy 2 is in it's on masterclass.:)
Surprised at F1 2010 too. IMO other winners should have included Limbo, Starcraft II and Dance Central
GAME would pick Black Ops ¬¬ The Game which gives them the biggest sales of course their going to pick that.
i despise cod but to be honest black ops had an awesome storyline atleast in my opinion xD @ BiggCMan yh well i thought this one was the better than mw2 and waw because it was dramatic near the end but if you still disagree then i understand because its still cod:P
Damn, really? I'll be honest, I was so bored of the story in Black Ops, I haven't even beaten it yet and I've had it since release day. I always play and beat the story first for all games, but I was just so bored of it.
i fully agree it was the only fps storyline i actually enjoyed and was like shit whats going to happen. BFBC2 i got bored, KZ2 i got bored, so yeah i thought this game is mint why is it getting so much hate. i still dont fully understand the hate. the online was good when i played it, the single player never froze up or hit any glitches at all, and i was palying the ps3 version so yeah.
the winners were shocking if you ask me. Apart from Heavy Rain. Best action game - "Assassins Creed" Jesus Christ...
I try and I try to 'get' Assassin's Creed and its sequels, but they do nothing for me.
Was really disappointed with Black Ops - nothing has managed to beat CoD 4! The menu screen was one of the best ever though ;)
I couldn't stand CoDBlops, much preferred Medal of Honour. No awards for Red Dead either, crackers.
Don't think Rockstar submitted it - only category was the GAME award but Black Ops got it instead!
"Multiplayer - Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit" Lol, they obviously havn't played Starcraft 2.
I can sort of see that NfS:HP's trick of keeping you aware of what your friends are up to even when you're playing solo is an innovative multiplayer feature, but beyond that I'm not sure what it does to distinguish itself from any other online racer, let alone win the entire multiplayer category.
Meh, one will be forgotten in no time and the other will continue being played for a long time to come. No prizes for guessing which one.
hell YEAH it has the most intense multi player. you sit there building your base etc and just like freaking out when they are going to attack its great fun. im glad i bought it just need to build my new pc then i canactually run it properly lol laptops are not the best for RTS. and i thought Red Dead had a better multi then NFS because i loved the showdowns at the start of each match they were really fun
God of War for artistic achievement? What the hell does that even mean? I mean it looked pretty, but it didn't really break any new ground compared to games like Heavy Rain.
Yay for Heavy Rain -- at least there are some sane people out there who can understand quality and innovation.
GAME Award - Call of Duty: Black Ops Oh god there ever been a award were they dont.
Super Mario Galaxy ftw! One of gamings FINEST!!!
