The Last of Us scoops top BAFTA award

A host of great games were honoured at the Video Game BAFTA ceremony on March 12th, but it was SONY's The Last of Us which came away with the biggest haul of golden gongs.

The PS3 exclusive won Game of the Year, and also took home the award as the best in the Action and Adventure genre. Developer Naughty Dog was also honoured for best story and audio achievement, while actor Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the game, won best performance.

Another SONY title also won in multiple categories. Tearaway, the delightful PS Vita papercraft platform adventure from LittleBigPlanet creator Media Molecule, was declared the best family game, best mobile/handheld game and was also awarded for the best artistic achievement.

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the evening belonged to Rockstar, however. The GTA developer was honoured with a BAFTA Fellowship, introduced on stage by Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima (who we were lucky enough to see earlier in the day) and accepted in person by the reclusive brothers Sam and Dan Houser, who founded Rockstar and still creatively guide the Grand Theft Auto series. GTA V itself also won some prizes of its own, named best British game, best game design and best multiplayer.

Other notable victors included FIFA 14, named best sports game; Bioshock Infinite, which won best music; and heartbreaking downloadable adventure Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, which took home the award for innovation. Cult indie PC hits Gone Home and Papers Please were named best debut and best strategy/simulation respectively.

That's quite an eclectic line-up - how many have you played?
