The BAFTA Games Awards 2021 winners have now all been revealed, with the ceremony having just come to a close. The BAFTA Games Awards are an annual British awards ceremony honoring ‘outstanding creative achievement’ in the video game industry through several different categories of accomplishment, and for the second year in a row have been held virtually. This ceremony celebrates the very best games of the previous year, with this year’s ceremony focusing predominantly on games that released in 2020. It seems that Hades picked up the most awards (including Best Game), with five of the fourteen awards given to the rouguelike RPG developed by Supergiant Games, and The Last of Us Part II and Animal Crossing: New Horizons also garnering multiple wins. Here is the full list of winners and runners-up for each category.

In our review of the Best Game, Hades, we praised the game saying ‘Hades succeeds as both a narrative-driven adventure and an addicting roguelike, and that’s a pretty tough combination to pull off.’
