Batman Game Arkham Asylum beats competition at BAFTA

Batman: Arkham Asylum has done much better than any of us would have assumed, this was evident when the title won the best game at last nights Bafta Video Game awards ceremony. The game that is based on the DC Comics superhero did so well because of the other characters in the game.

What other game do you know that features a host of enemies, such as The Joker, just imagine how much better it would have been if Heath Ledger had voiced him? The award that Batman: Arkham Asylum took home was the Best Gameplay Award.

Another big winner of the night was Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. There is no denying how popular this game was when first launched, and picking up an award in the action, story, original score and audio use categories is solid proof of its achievements.

Gamers and experts had expected Uncharted to take the award for best game, so were surprised when Batman took the win — not that it did not deserve it. Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 is now underway and we reported that Robin will be in the game.

Other games that picked up awards at last nights Bafta Video Game awards ceremony were Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which took the public vote. Nintendo’s Wii Sports Resort took the best family and social game, while Nintendo’s Dr Kawashima’s Brain Tr took the award for sales.
