Unlike The Oscars, BAFTA recognises the horror genre exists, even within the games industry, as is evident by some of the winners of this year’s BAFTA Game Awards. Some fine choices (along with some equally questionable ones; best game, really?) we think you’ll agree. You can find a full list of the winners nicked and pasted beneath the wealth of horror gaming news we’ve also nicked and pasted below. There really is no better way to start your weekend than with a fine cup of coffee and a rundown of all the latest gore-spattered gaming news, videos and updates, so why not do just that? Enjoy!
