News: But Uncharted 2 takes home four awards.



The 2009 British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Video Game Awards were handed out last night and developer Rocksteady Studios and their PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game Batman: Arkham Asylum was honored as the Best Game of 2009. In the handheld division, Sony's PSP conversion of LittleBigPlanet was awarded the Best Handheld Game honors.

Shigeru Miyamoto received this year's Academy Fellowship. Of the selection, the BAFTA academy said "Miyamoto is celebrated globally as the 'Steven Spielberg' of the gaming world and is often referred to as 'the father of modern video games.' His design credits read like a who's who of classic gaming and include: Mario Bros, Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda, Nintendogs and Wii Music."

Among the genre/artisitic awards, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves cleaned up with a total of four wins. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, shut out of all the other awards, managed to take home the People's Choice "GAME Award".
