Dishonored and Journey came up big in our 2012 GotY Awards . We were one of the few sources to give Dishonored overall Game of the Year.
…and now the BAFTAs have copied our picks.
Oh, that isn't true at all; totally different awards involved. But the gems from Arkane Studios and Thatgamecompany did indeed score big at this year's BAFTA Awards, as all the hardware has been handed out .
Dishonored won Best Game while Journey took home awards for Artistic Achievement, Audio Achievement, Original Music, Game Design and Online – Multiplayer. Telltale Games' critically acclaimed The Walking Dead nabbed two awards (Story and Mobile & Handheld) and overall, 13 of the 19 awards went to mobile/downloadable titles. Here's the list:
It's also interesting to note that The Unfinished Swan won in the Innovation category (and we gave it Best Original Game), and it also won Best Debut Game. As for Dishonored , although the only award it won was Best Game of the year, that's because it's simply greater than the sum of its parts. Which we said in the review, and was evident in our 2012 GotY awards. …stop mimicking us! Yes yes, just kidding. 🙂
