THE BUZZ: The 2012 GAME British Academy Video Game Awards were held today, and names like Skyrim, Bastian, and Nintendo were nowhere to be found.
EGM’s TAKE: BAFTA—the British Academy of Film and Television Arts—are of course a big name in the world of entertainment. Today, the organization held their video games-related awards ceremony.
The interesting part? A number of big names went home empty handed—names such as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Bastion, and anything released by Nintendo.
