Batman: Arkham Asylum Wins BAFTA Game Of The Year

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts handed out their annual video game awards today, and while Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 2: Among Thieves walked away with the most awards (4), it was Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Asylum that went home with the Game of the Year statue.

There were a few rather surprising results, including Wii Sports Resort besting the Fab Four-fest The Beatles: Rock Band for Best Family and Social Game, FIFA 10 over Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for Use of Online (and Left 4 Dead 2 over MW2 for Multiplayer Game for that matter), and Flower over every juggernaut game of last year.

However, the highlight of the evening had to be Nintendo creative head and industry legend Shigeru Miyamoto receiving the BAFTA Fellowship. Miyamoto becomes the third gaming icon to receive the prestigious honor, after  Sims creator Will Wright (2007) and Atari founder Nolan Bushnell (2009), and the first ever Japanese recipient. Well deserved indeed.

The full list of this year's winners can be found after the break.
