The British Academy Game Awards is one of the most prestigious awards ceremonies in the games industry, and the 2019 event brought a number of wins for Sony’s PS4 exclusive God of War. The epic game was up for 10 awards and won four of them, including Best Game.

God of War also won the awards for Audio Achievement, Music, and Narrative. Other big winners at this year’s event were Return of the Obra Dinn–which won the Artistic Achievement and Game Design categories–and Nintendo Labo, which swept up the Game Innovation and Family awards.

Surprisingly, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Celeste–which were each nominated for six and five awards, respectively–didn’t win a single category between them. The full list of winners is filled with some outstanding games, however, and you can see that list below with the winners highlighted in bold.

The BAFTA Game awards are voted on by members of the British Academy. Only one category, Mobile Game of the Year, is decided by the public, and that went to Old School Runescape.
