God of War wins another best game award; this time, it won the BAFTA Award for Best Game from 2018. The event was hosted by Dara O'Briain.

God War also won awards for Audio Achievement, Music, Narrative and Performer for Jeremy Davies, who portrayed The Stranger. "It is daily failure, constant doubt, this feeling that what you're doing is really not that great, not that good, and every once in a while there is a shining moment of "A-ha I got it", which is followed by sobbing", said Santa Monica Studio's Cory Barlog, the director of God Of War. TechRaptor wholeheartedly agrees with this recognition.

God of War has already won numerous awards for Best Game of 2018, including winning the game of the year awards at the 2018 Game Awards, and the D.I.C.E. Awards. The Debut Game award went to pinball Metroidvania game Yoku's Island Express (which we also loved).
