Dungeons & Dragons Online wins British award

On Thursday, the British Academy of Film & Television Arts (similar to the Oscars) announced its 2006 winners in Video Games categories – and we’re as surprised they have the categories as you are. In the Multiplayer category, Atari’s Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach took the prize, which must mean they’re doing something right even if World of Warcraft hasn’t been pushed off its throne. Other notable winners were Shadow of the Colossus (for Artistic Achievement and Action/Adventure), Rise and Fall: Civilizations at War (for Strategy), and Lego Star Wars II (for Gameplay). Also of interest is the Academy’s games committee list, which includes none other than Ian Livingstone, of Games Workshop and Fighting Fantasy fame, among other achievements.
