“As far as I know, this is the first time BAFTA have given an award to 900 people.” That was Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser on Wednesday night at the British Academy Games Awards, in a fine speech as he accepted what amounted to a lifetime achievement award for Rockstar Games.
The folks at Rockstar typically keep a low profile, so what you can see in the clip above is the rarest of sights: Dan and Sam Houser (far right), the brothers who lead the creation of all of Rockstar’s games from Grand Theft Auto to Bully to Red Dead Redemption — along with Grand Theft Auto V art director Aaron Garbut (wearing glasses) and Rockstar North chief Leslie Benzies (far left).
Collectively, and on behalf of all of Rockstar, they accepted a BAFTA fellowship. They were introduced by none other than Metal Gear mastermind Hideo Kojima.
They closed the awards show, but the whole thing is worth a watch. Check it out below embedded via Twitch (if the whole show doesn’t play there, find the rest of it at this link). And here’s a list of the winners.
