Outer Wilds & Disco Elysium Win Big at the BAFTA Games Awards

Outer Wilds & Disco Elysium Win Big at the BAFTA Games Awards

Matt Lorrigan

The BAFTA Games Awards took place yesterday, with indie title Outer Wilds winning best game, and Hideo Kojima receiving a BAFTA Fellowship.

The BAFTA Fellowship is a prestigious award, with Hideo Kojima joining other gaming Fellows such as Shigero Miyamoto, John Carmack and Gabe Newell, and non-gaming Fellows such as David Attenborough, Martin Scorsese and Judi Dench. 

In terms of the games, Outer Wilds did very well, winning the Best Game award, as well as awards in Game Design and Original Property. Disco Elysium also won three awards, including Debut Game, Music and Narrative. Kojima's own Death Stranding won the Technical Achievement Award, while Gonzalo Martin won the award for Performer in a Leading Role for his work in Life is Strange 2. You can check out the full list of winners below!

I always enjoy the BAFTA Games Awards - the nominations and the winners are often quite different from what you traditionally see at something like The Game Awards. If you fancy giving Best Game winner Outer Wilds a try, it's available now on Xbox One via Xbox Game Pass, as well as PlayStation 4 and PC.

  • Hey Matt, At the bottom of the article you write "If you fancy giving Best Game winner Outer Worlds a try" but the winner is "Outer WILDS". As you'll see in the list of winners above. Just thought I'd point that out :P Also, both Outer Wilds *and* Outer Worlds are on Game Pass!
  • @1 Thank you for pointing that out, don't think I'll ever stop mixing up those two games! Much appreciated, changed it in the article now.
