BAFTA Games Awards 2022 Winners Announced
Video games are often met with praise for the unique experiences that they deliver and the accomplishments they obtain. This is similar to the film and television industry, as they wind up having various award shows throughout the year to celebrate the best of the best. We also give awards to some of the best games of the year, of course. However. today’s focus is on the BAFTA Games Awards, held in England in April 7, 2022.
