Well, I think the title says it all really. The BAFTA Video Game Awards have come and gone, and now we have our winners. The 6th of April saw the awards ceremony take place, but even though the awards are taking place in 2017 these are actually nominees from 2016. The full list of nominees can be found on the BAFTA site, but below you will find the list of the categories and the winner for that category.
