BAFTA Video Game Awards 2012 Winners

Portal 2 stole the show at the BAFTA Video Games Awards 2012 ceremony last night. Portal 2 was named best game while the public voted for Battlefield 3 as the winner of the GAME Award.

Receiving the BAFTA Special Award was Markus Persson the Swedish developer behind the phenomenally successful Minecraft game. “I don't really think of myself as an innovator,” he said. “Most of the things I've decided to do were things I saw other people do. I’ve maybe just popularised some stuff and perfected the combination of certain elements, like letting people play a game before it’s finished.”
