BAFTA Winners Include GOTY Award For Vampire Survivors

Here are the 2023 BAFTA winners.


The British Academy of Film and Television Arts, aka BAFTA, has announced its winners for its 2023 Game Awards. Games such as God of War Ragnarok, Vampire Survivors, and Tunic are all walking away with awards.

Vampire Survivors was able to secure the win for the Best Game, beating out other titles such as Cult of the Lamb, Stray, and Elden Ring. Other games, such as God of War Ragnorok, left the show with six awards in categories such as Animation and Audio Achievement. Meanwhile, Elden Ring earned its team a pair of rewards for Multiplayer Game and Original Property.

Late last year in December, during The Game Awards, Elden Ring won Game of The Year, Best Game Direction, and a handful of other awards. In comparison, God of War Ragnorok won awards such as Best Narrative, Best Music and Score, and a few others.

The BAFTA Games Awards took place on March 30 at the Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, and it was live-streamed on the BAFTAs Twitch channel. It was hosted by Frankie Ward alongside various Twitch streamers.
