The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has declared that Nintendo's Super Mario Galaxy is the best game of 2008. While the Wii platformer may have taken home top honors, the game that earned the most awards was Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare from  Infinity Ward/Activision. The FPS picked up three awards: Gameplay, Story & Character and the BAFTA Game of the Year Award, voted for by the public.

Nolan Bushell, inventor of Atari and Chuck E. Cheese -- and all around awesome guy-- was honored with The BAFTA Fellowship. 

I'm not sure I agree with the idea that COD 4 had the best story and characters of any game last year. I might have given that nod to Grand Theft Auto IV, but other than that left-field choice, it seems like an okay list. The full tally of winners is below the cut.
