These are the best games of 2015 (according to BAFTA)

2015 might feel like a grim, clammy memory of evenings wasted failing to convince yourself you really would stop playing that game, right after you nail this boss - but to the bods of BAFTA, 2015 only ended yesterday. Or at least in March. Because of the financial calendar, or something. 

Anyway, that's a clumsy way of introducing the winners of 2015's British Academy Games Awards (presented in 2016): those video games that you poured many an hour into, that you cancelled social plans to play and stayed indoors for an unhealthily long period with.

If you haven't played the following, you really, really should.
