Man, those BAFTA awards were nutty. Games in the wrong category, games nominated that weren't even out yet...what a mess. Were the Golden Joysticks any better? We'd love to say "yes", but are going to instead bust out a resounding "no". Why? Because of the award's scheduling, the winners list reads exactly like a list of...the best games of 2006. Full list of winners after the jump, but know Gears of War and Guitar Hero II feature prominently.
