The nominees for this year's BAFTA Game Awards have now been revealed with 53 games being recognised across 17 categories. This year is shaping up to be a competitive one!
At the front with a whopping eight nominations is the much-celebrated Journey. The indie game created by "thatgamecompany" is up for Artistic Achievement, Audio Achievement, Game Innovation, Online-Multiplayer, Best Game, Game Design, Story and Original Music. This is a massive list for a game that hasn't really seen major press.
Just behind Journey seven nods is The Walking Dead, which will be challenging Journey in the Best Game, Game Design, Story and Original Music categories, as well as vying for Mobile & Handheld as well as two awards.
Far Cry 3 is up for six nominations, including Action, Story, Best Game and Game Design, while Dear Esther has five chances to bag a win in categories including British Game, Debut Game and Performer.
Rounding out the list of honored games with four nominations are Borderlands 2, Assasin's Creed III, The Room, and Halo 4 whilst Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Mass Effect 3, Forza Horizon, The Unfinished Swan, and Thomas Was Alone all received three nominations.
