Skylanders Giants, the second game in Activision's popular series of games that requires action figures in order to play, has won a BAFTA award. It was named game of the year at the 2013 Children's BAFTA awards, beating out the likes of Lego City Undercover, Luigi's Mansion 2 and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Despicable Me: Minion Rush by Gameloft was chosen as the winner in the BAFTA Kids' Vote - Video Game in 2013. The award was voted on by children ages 7-14, who picked Gameloft's free-to-play game over Minecraft and Just Dance 4.
Moshi Monsters from Mind Candy won the Interactive category, and Bin Weevils won best website. Previous years' winners of the Children's BAFTA game category include Skylanders Spyro's Adventure last year, LEGO Pirates Of The Caribbean and Rabbids Go Home.
No doubt the newest Skylanders game is a shoe-in for next year's top award... or maybe Disney Infinity will prove to be a serious challenger during the 2014 awards...
