BAFTA Games Awards 2015 winners: 'Destiny,' 'Shadow of Mordor,' more

Posted on

Beating out a few best game or game of the year winners from other major award shows, Bungie’s Destiny took home the top prize at the 2015 BAFTA Games Awards.

Destiny released last September after a public alpha and beta during the summer, and has received one major expansion pack of content since its debut. And despite its flaws, Destiny has demonstrated why it’s tough to put the game down, and may be worth revisiting for those who initially wrote the game off. 

The night’s awards spread the wealth in other categories, with only two games, Monument Valley and The Last of Us: Left Behind, receiving multiple honors.
