After not giving out any game awards last year because the British Academy realised at the last minute that most of the good games wouldn't have been released in October when the award ceremony is meant to be held, the Academy has finally caught up to itself and announced the award winners of yore.

Unfortunately, because of the delay and the fact that pretty much a year of games were quickly skipped over, it also means that there's a lot of older titles on the list.

The side effect of that then is that there are some games there which don't win the awards they arguably should have done as they've been edged out by older titles. It's strange to see COD4 win the award for Story and Character too, especially considering some of the other contenders.

Still, it's good to see the oft-overlooked Prof. Layton and the Curious Village on there.

Check out the list below and then let us know your thoughts in the forums.
