A bit surprised about Portal 2 winning best story given the competition like Batman and LA Noire.

Sports to Kinect Sports 2? Was Fifa not nominated?

Story: Portal 2? I could understand for Gameplay / Design / Puzzle / Humor, but not story.

"Sports to Kinect Sports 2? Was Fifa not nominated?"

BAFTA totally missed the mark with that one. Giving the award to the lowest (by far) reviewed game of the nominations. Not that I'm biased at all.... ;)
