The Bafta Game Awards are a lot smaller scale than the film award counterpart with less pomp and glitz.
Doctor Who and Sherlock Holmes writer, Stephen Moffatt, said when presenting the Best Story award to the Last of Us “It’s extraordinarily rare to be around when a new art-form is being born, [Video games] are going to own the future. I am here chiefly to crawl to my new bosses.”
