The GAME British Academy Video Games Awards 2012 were announced in London. Valve's "Portal 2" stole the show with three awards for Design, Story and the coveted Best Game. "Little Big Planet 2", "Battlefied 3" and "Batman:Arkham City" were the other games that won awards in important categories.

Celebrating the skill and talent in the gaming industry, the GAME awards are announced by BAFTA every year. According to Electronic Theatre, "Batman:Arkham City" took the Award for Action and Mark Hamill received his first-ever BAFTA in the new Performer category for his role as the Joker.
