Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare won big at 2009's BAFTA Game Awards in London, picking up three awards including the audience-voted GAME Award of 2008.
Unusually, due to an adjustment in the annual consideration period for the game-related BAFTAs, titles released both in late 2007 as well as all of 2008 were eligible -- explaining why Infinity Ward's November 2007 game made the cut.
Call of Duty 4's other honors were for Gameplay, the first award of the night, and Story and Character. The only other title to rack up more than one win was EA Redwood Shores' Dead Space, which took Original Score and Use of Audio.
The overall Best Game for the awards, which mirror similar film awards given out yearly by the British association, went to Nintendo EAD Tokyo's Super Mario Galaxy.
