Super Mario Galaxy 2 Wins BAFTA for Best Gameplay

Posted Thu, 17 Mar 2011 by James Newton

The only award that counts

Nintendo's jewel in its Wii crown, Super Mario Galaxy 2, was honoured at the BAFTA Video Games Awards last night, taking home the award for Best Gameplay. The plumber beat competition from Heavy Rain, God of War III, Mass Effect 2 and more, though Mario's space sequel lost to BioWare's space sequel in the Best Game category.

Regrettably Mario lost out in the Best Original Music category to Heavy Rain, and also finished behind Call of Duty: Black Ops in the GAME Award of 2010, but at least he took home the shiny gold statue for Best Gameplay which is, after all, the most important thing.

No other Nintendo titles took home awards, with Sega's Sonic Colours losing to Cut the Rope in the Best Handheld Game category.

The gameplay was indeed amazing for this game. What do you think?

Back to the original question, list of people who didn't see this coming:
People who actively play COD

That's all I have to say about this statement.
I know how to drive. Step on the gas pedal, turn with the wheel, and hit as many pedestrians as you can!

I like how people think that any Mario game is a gem.

This, I played Mario Galaxy 2, didn't really enjoy it at all, I think it's nothing special. There are people/magazines (ONM i'm looking at you) who are unbelievably biased toward any game with the word 'Mario' in it.

It was a cool game, don't get me wrong. But it was not special.
