Five BAFTAs for The Last Of Us

Sony cleans up at the British Academy Games Awards

It was a big night for Sony at the British Academy Games Awards last night, as The Last Of Us and Tearaway won eight of the categories between them.

As well as the all important Best Game, The Last Of Us won Action & Adventure, Audio Achievement, Story and Ashley Johnson's performance as Ellie won Performer.

In a blog post after the event Johnson blogged about her experience of working on the game.

"I feel so lucky that I got to play Ellie. To play a female character in a game that for once isn't sexualised and is a real 14 year old girl. A 14 year old girl that has insecurities and emotional ups and downs but can also hold her own in a fight if she needs to. Ellie is a complete badass to me and I'm proud of who and what she represents as a woman."
