LONDON: Fallout 4, the popular action role-playing title, has won the award for best game at this year’s Bafta game awards. Although the blockbuster adventure took the night’s main prize, it was one of the only big budget success stories of the evening. Instead, the night was ruled by three independent titles, the UK-developed Her Story and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, and sci-fi sports sim, Rocket League by San Diego studio Psyonix. Each won three awards a piece. Another British title, Her Story, won in three categories: Debut Game, Mobile and Handheld Game and Game Innovation. Created on a micro budget, the game quickly sold over 100,000 units on PC, tablet and smart phone. Meanwhile, Best
British Game went to Batman: Arkham Knight, Bloodborne was awarded Best Design, and cult titles Life is Strange and Until Dawn won in the Story and Original Property categories.
