Naughty Dog’s action-adventure game Uncharted 4 ended up being a huge hit. Both critics and audiences love it still, and certainly for good reason. As a result, the game has been nominated for and won a bunch of prestigious industry awards. The latest award Uncharted 4 has received is the Best Game at this year’s British Academy Games Awards, held by BAFTA.

Uncharted 4 won against Inside, Titanfall 2, Stardew Valley, Overwatch and Firewatch. So, all in all, the competition wasn’t too strong, but I like seeing several indie games being nominated for such a big award.

Here’s a list of all the British Academy Games Awards winners in the different categories. It’s a very colorful bunch.

  • Best Game – Uncharted 4
  • Artistic Achievement – Inside
  • Audio Achievement – The Last Guardian
  • British Game – Overcooked
  • Debut Game – Firewatch
  • Evolving Game – Rocket League
  • Family – Overcooked
  • Game Design – Inside
  • Game Innovation – That Dragon, Cancer
  • Mobile – Pokemon GO
  • Multiplayer – Overwatch
  • Music – Virginia
  • Narrative – Inside
  • Original Property – Inside
  • Performer – Cissy Jones (as Delilah in Firewatch)
  • AMD Esports Audience Award – Clash Royale

The biggest surprise here is Clash Royale, I think. The other nominated games were CS:GO, Overwatch, Street Fighter V, League of Legends and Dota 2. I honestly would never put money on Clash Royale against that kind of competition. Shows what I know. Everything else is pretty much what you’d expect, except maybe The Last Guardian getting the Audio Achievement award.

Uncharted 4 released on May 10th, 2016 on the PlayStation 4. The newest single-player story DLC. The release date of The Lost Legacy DLC is still unknown, but it might be announced soon.
