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.
