The 2010 awards night had a fair share of pleasant surprises and deserved wins

Miyamoto, Naughty Dog and Rocksteady may have been the names that dominated this week’s BAFTA awards night, but there was a abundance of talented, dedicated developers that filled the nominations sheet.

British outfit The Creative Assembly managed to win the Strategy award for the acclaimed Empire total War, and ThatGameCompany won the Artistic Achievement prize.

Meanwhile, the likes of Valve and Infinity Ward, though unfortunate to leave with less gold than hoped, had their names scattered across numerous hotly-contested categories.

Ultimately, the list below represents a vintage twelve months for the game development industry.

Winners in bold. Links lead to separate reports including speeches.
