All the winners of the BAFTA Games 2022, what is the GOTY?

The eighteenth gala of the BAFTA Games Awards was held on the night of this April 7, a competition led by the British Academy in which video game culture is the main protagonist. The objective, as in previous editions, was the same: to reward excellence in the sector over the past year.

The Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, England, was the video game capital of the world in a ceremony that sought to find its new game of the year (GOTY, for its acronym in English), which is none other than Returnal, developed by Finnish studio Housemark (PlayStation Studios). A total of four awards for the roguelike third-person shooter from a team used to not faltering.

Returnal, big winner of the BAFTA Games 2022 with 4 prizes

Although It Takes Two and Returnal started out as strong favorites with nine nominations each, the reality is that Returnal has won more awards than any other, surpassing It Takes Two, Unpacking and Ratchet and Clank: A Separate Dimension with two awards each. . , which was redeemed at these BAFTA Games 2022 after going empty at The Game Awards.

For the rest, the recognition of unforgettable works such as Inscryption, The Artful Escape, TOEM, Chicory: A Colorful Tale and Before Your Eyes stands out, five independent titles that we have loved in this house; Forza Horizon 5, Psychonauts 2 or even No Man’s Sky also receive rewards, as we will see below. Finally, it appears that works like Deathloop, Halo Infinite, Resident Evil Village or Metroid Dread come back empty-handed.

Let’s take a look at the full list of winners.

  1. Returnal – 4 awards (9 nominations)
  2. It Takes Two — 2 awards (9 nominations)
