2 min read

The British videogame academy awards, otherwise knows as the BAFTA’s have been happening over night and instead of forcing you to watch something that just isn’t that entertaining yet we have all the winners right here.

Okay so lets get it into.

First up Peter Molyneux was awarded an Academy Fellowship for his hard work in the videogame industry over the years, something which he really does deserve.
