Fallout 4 takes home Game of the Year at the BAFTA Game Awards

We’re already into April, and some awards are still pouring in for last year’s major video games. So far, two camps have proven to be the most successful, which, naturally in the video game world, means the most vitriol to each other when the other scoops up a major award. 2015 saw a huge race between The Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 as they battled it out for Game of the Year awards.

Fallout 4 has won the most frequent one after claiming this year’s BAFTA Game of the Year award. It beat out the usual suspects of The Witcher 3, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Everybody’s Gone to Rapture, Life is Strange, and Rocket League.

Other games walked away with awards as well, so be sure to check out the winners below. Are there anymore major shows to hand out awards, or does the Fallout 4 camp get the final say this year?

And, before you ask, I’m on team Undertale, so I have no dog in this fight. My dogs reside in a magical land of talking skeletons and other monsters, a mountainous town where it never stops snowing.
