Her Story and Rapture clean up at 2016 BAFTA awards

April 7, 2016 | By Christian Nutt




Tonight in London, the British Academy Games Awards were handed out by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts -- or BAFTA for short -- and while Fallout 4 won best game of the year, the real winners were Her Story and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, which bagged numerous statuettes (the latter after leading nominations.)

This year, BAFTA also handed out its fellowship to Oculus VR CTO John Carmack, in honor of his contributions to the medium of video games.

The full list of winners is below -- notably, Her Story and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture each picked up three awards.
