Take a look at some of the winners and presenters from the video game Baftas, which saw zombie thriller The Last of Us taking home the top prize of best game.
Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima presented the Bafta fellowship award to GTA V creators Rockstar Games. He told Newsbeat the company has "broken the scheme by introducing the concept of an open world, they did something that freed game designers and players of the boundaries."
Comedian Chris Ramsey (right) and Alex Brooker were also among the celebrities presenting awards. The British Academy Games Awards are in their tenth year and have become a highlight of the calendar for the games industry in the UK and around the world.

Sherlock and Dr Who writer Stephen Moffatt presented the award for Best Story to The Last of Us. He called video games "a brand new art form". He added: "It's something that kids expect, if there's a big successful TV show they'll expect there to be a game for it."
Dan Pearce was nominated in the debut game category for Castles in the Sky. He said it feels "kind of scary. My developer partner and I haven't been making games too long so it's amazing to be in this position. I'm a little bit worried we're peaking really early!"
Sophia George (third right) and Team DOS, whose Size DOES Matter game took the BAFTA ones to watch award in association with Dare to Be Digital.
The team behind The Last of Us, winner of five awards including Best Game, told Newsbeat they were sceptical about the game's appeal. "We would often having conversations about it not going to sell... but we stuck to our guns and made a game that we really wanted to play".
Lucas Pope won the strategy and simulation category for Papers Please. "I had some idea that people would like the game but no idea it would get this kind of reception. The story itself puts people in a position they're not used to and hopefully teaches them a little about themselves."
