British Academy Games Awards

EE Game of the Year 2021

As the UK’s no.1 network for gaming, we’re proud to have partnered with the British Academy Games Awards for a third year. We gave you the chance to vote for the very special EE Game of the Year Award and you voted in your thousands. 

The winner was announced at the BAFTA Games Awards on Thursday 25 March 2021. The Game of the Year 2021, as chosen by you, was The Last Of Us Part II.


How were the six nominees chosen?

The shortlist was decided by a panel of games experts who were tasked with nominating six games that have resonated most with players around the world – capturing our imaginations and keeping us entertained and connected over the past year.

The panel was chaired by Dr Jo Twist OBE, chair of the BAFTA Games Committee, and included leading industry specialists and gaming journalists.
