2012 BAFTA Games Winners

Portal 2 takes home the big prize in the British Academy of Film and Television Awards for games, not only taking home the award for Best Game, Design, and Story. Meanwhile, the fans made their voices heard with a nod for Battlefield 3. Skyrim, which pretty much swept the major awards here in the states was completely shut out, while the other favorite from 2011, Arkham City, took one award for Action.
