Sony Wins Many BAFTA Awards, But Hades Takes Game of the Year
With the BAFTA Game Awards 2021 all done and dusted, the event marked another successful night for Sony. Many PlayStation 4 exclusives won various categories, the most celebrated of which was The Last of Us: Part II. It was the overall winner in three different brackets, those being Animation, Performer in a Leading Role (Laura Bailey as Abby), and the EE Game of the Year. That final category was the only one voted on by the wider gaming community. However, the overall Best Game slot went to Hades. We’re still sat here waiting for the indie hit from Supergiant Games to come to PS5 and PS4.
Throughout the evening, Ghost of Tsushima was recognised for its Audio Achievement, Sackboy: A Big Adventure won the British Game and Family categories, and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales was praised for Music. Dreams won the Technical Achievement bracket and Media Molecule’s studio director Siobhan Reddy became the next BAFTA Fellowship member.
