The big budget Destiny has been named as best game at 2015's BAFTA video game awards, but independent titles also triumphed. Edward Baran reports.
Destiny was named as best game at the 2015 BAFTA video game awards on Thursday night. For some in the audience, Destiny's win was something of a surprise -- it had attracted mixed reviews and divides gamers. Accepting the top prize, the developer Bungie's president thanked the game's players. SOUNDBITE. David Braben, game developer, saying (English): "It's always a labour of love that we do because of the passion of the fans that play the game." Several other of the bigger budget nominees walked away without a prize, but independent games such as Minecraft and Monument Valley triumphed. The Last of Us: Left Behind won the Story and Performance categories. Best game design went to Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor.
