A Study In Emerald

 

British Academy Video Game Awards 2012

Once again it’s March and that means the BAVGAs. Once more hosted by Irish comedian Dara O’Briain. Opening with a terrible “arrow in the knee” joke, then lambasting ITV for its use of ARMA II footage as never-before-seen footage of the IRA.  Surprisingly no quips about the current status of BAVGA sponsor GAME. This year introduces the “Performer” award.

This year, despite some stellar games up for nominations, felt a bit flat. Not helped by the same stellar games being up for nomination again and again. Though one highlight for me would be the introduction to The Nightjar, which unfortunately I can’t play due to lack of an iOS device.

Congratulations to all the winners, especially to DICE and Valve for picking up three awards each, including Best Game for Portal 2.

Once the stream has been archived you can watch it on the BAFTA site.
