BAFTA - For the win.

You can find the results of the BAFTA Game Awards here. I won't ruin the surprise but Psychonauts wins best screenplay.

W00t.

Are the BAFTAs failing the video games industry by pegging on titles we normally associate with television and movies, such as 'screenplay', onto gaming awards? I'm inclined to say that the honour of a UK games award ceremony taking notice of our industry is well worth the current supposition that games equate to interactive movies. I hope that, with time, mainstream acceptance of gaming as a valuable medium will lead to the creation of our own terminology to attach to games at award ceremonies. And I still don't know what to call the GTA-alike.
