Charlie Brooker on the winners at the Bafta awards
Batman: Arkham Asylum has been crowned best game at the Bafta 2010 awards.
The British developed title headed off strong competition from Uncharted 2: Among Thieves that led the nomination field before the ceremony.
The game, which sees the superhero tackle a series of old foes in the asylum setting, also picked up the Bafta award for best gameplay.
Despite not winning the best game award, Uncharted 2 did take four other awards including best action and story.
The Bafta awards is one of the biggest nights in the UK gaming calendar. The winners of 14 of the categories are chosen by industry figures.
One award, sponsored by high-street store Game, is chosen by gamers. As widely expected Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 took that title. The sales that Modern Warfare 2 racked up in 2009 made it the biggest selling game of all time.
Assassin's Creed II was nominated in a total of seven categories but managed to win none of them.
The video game Baftas also saw success for another British-developed title LittleBigPlanet. Originally created by Surrey-based Media Molecule, it won the best award for best handheld game. The portable version was produced by an in-house development team at Sony.
Left 4 Dead 2 took the award for best multiplayer game - the second year that the series has scooped that award.
