The 2010 British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Video Games Award ended on Friday night (March 19) with Batman: Arkham Asylum winning the prize for best game of 2010. Batman beat Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Assassin’s Creed 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, FIFA 10 and Left 4 Dead 2 to win the award.
Uncharted 2, however, bounced back to win four other awards– best action, original score, best story and use of audio. The gamers’ (vote) award, sponsored by high-street store Game, went to Modern Warfare 2 – the biggest selling game of all time due to its 2009 sales record.
