BAFTA Game Awards winners - Best Game goes to Destiny

British Academy Games Awards 2015 Rufus Hound 1

See the full list of Thursday's Games Awards winners, and hear an emotional speech from Performer in 2015 winner Ashley Johnson.

The British Academy Games Awards took place at Tobacco Dock in London on Thursday night, and we have the full list of winners for you below.

Surprisingly Bungie's Destiny won Best Game in 2015, which I'm sure many would argue against, but that's one to discuss in the comments section.

Ashley Johnson won the Performer in 2015 award for her role as Ellie in The Last of Us: Left Behind DLC. Johnson presented an emotional speech in which she thanked her family, friends, and colleagues.

Johnson ended her speech with a tribute to Leonard Nimoy, who played Spock in Star Trek, by giving a Vulcan salute.

You can watch her speech in full in the tweet from developers Naughty Dog below.


The Last of Us: Left Behind also picked up Best Story in 2015, and Johnson was on hand to collect the award on Naughty Dog's behalf.

The Fellowship 2015 award was given to David Braben OBE for his contribution to the games industry. Braben is the CEO of Frontier Developments, developers of many games over the years, including most recently Elite: Dangerous. Check out the tribute to Braben's career from the BAFTAs below.
