LONDON (REUTERS) - Stealth action game Dishonored, featuring a masked bodyguard-turned-assassin, was named best video game of the year at an award ceremony on Tuesday.

An exotic adventure, Journey, beat big budget rivals to take home five awards at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Game Awards.

Dishonored, developed by France's Arkane Studios that is owned by privately-owned US company ZeniMax Media, beat the widely expected favourite, Journey, for the top prize.

Also nominated for that award were Far Cry 3 from Ubisoft , EA's FIFA 13, Mass Effect 3 from Bioware, and The Walking Dead from TellTale Games.
