The winners and nominations in every category of the 2020 BAFTA Games Awards.

Last night, the BAFTA Games Awards 2020 rounded up the awards calendar with a look back at the finest video games to grace our screens in the past year. It was certainly a different affair than usual, featuring dogs, sheep, geese and more than one fake award due to the coronavirus pandemic. That didn’t stop the quality of games from shining through, however, and many winners took the chance to put a smile on people’s faces with entertaining reception videos. You’re here for the results, so let’s get straight to it with the BAFTA Games Awards 2020 Winners.

And that’s all of them! Every Bafta Games Award 2020 winner and nominee. Phew, Outer Wilds and Disco Elysium sure did well, eh? Thanks to coronavirus control measures, the show itself was an odd one, with host Dara Ó Briain presenting from a room in his house. Rather than proving to dampen spirits, it actually made for a very wholesome affair, as several winners producing silly and amusing video responses to the award. We’ve embedded the full Bafta Games Awards 2020 show below so you can enjoy it for yourself. See you next year!
