BAFTA 2023 Games Awards winners announced

The Bafta 2023 Games Awards found their owners with a ceremony. As a prestigious organization, BAFTA had only one winner in each category, although many games were nominated at the awards ceremony, which could help bring the gaming industry forward on a larger scale. Below you can find the list of candidates and winners we have prepared for you.

Bafta 2023 Games Awards Winners and Nominees

God of War was the winner of the awards given in a total of 17 categories. God of War, which took the lead in almost all the categories for which it was nominated, received four awards, but did not win the Game of the Year Award. On the other hand its rival Elden Ring, achieved only one award.

Game of the Year is Vampire Survivors, a survival game with minimalist gameplay and roguelite elements. The production, which was nominated in five categories, won two of these.

Another game that caught our attention was Tunic. The independent game Tunic won two awards, and was among the productions that marked the night.

At the ceremony, the Bafta Fellowship Award was also presented to Shuhei Yoshida, a veteran of the game industry, who was the president of Sony Interactive Entertainment between 2008 to 2019.
