From time to time, Saturday Night at the Movies turns away from film scores to explore the thrilling world of video game music. 

On Thursday 12 March, the BAFTA Games Awards took place, so Andrew Collins will be taking a look back at the event and the big winners, with particular attention to the Best Music nominees.

The nominated games were Alien: Isolation, The Banner Saga, Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved, The Sailor’s Dream, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and Far Cry 4.

A total of 51 games were recognised across 17 categories, with Alien: Isolation gaining the most nominations.
