While the BAFTAs -- British Academy of Film and Television Arts -- are more commonly known for a yearly awards ceremony where people everywhere freak out over who wears what, this time we take a look at gaming. Taking place on the 15th of March, a panel of industry based judges will be appraising some of the very best video games of the last year with categories ranging from Action right down to the publicly voted GAME award. 

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood starts by dominating with seven nominations, Call of Duty: Black Ops and Heavy Rain have six and Mass Effect 2 has five. On a personal note, I am disappointed to see that Enslaved didn't even get nominated for anything, but I am pretty excited for Mass Effect 2 and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, both games that I feel in love with. 

For those who want to get involved the list of GAME nominated awards can be voted for at www.baftagameawards.com and include Call of Duty: Black Ops, Fifa 11, Dance Central, Halo: Reach, Heavy Rain, LIMBO, Mass Effect 2, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, Red Dead Redemption and Super Mario Galaxy, the show itself will also be streamed live for the very first time. 

A full list of all catagories and nominations and be found here

Someone once told me I talk like Jeff Goldblum. This is not true. I also don't look like Charlie Day, Peter Frampton, Bret McKenzie, Michael Sheen, or Dikembe Mutombo. But at least I appreciated the former (tip: don...more

Nominees for Destructoid's Best Narrative Design of 2014

[Image credit: Mike Lambert] It's impossible to pinpoint exactly what it is that makes for great narrative design. It's just something you know when you see. It's more than an outstanding story (although, that's certainl...more

GOTY 2014: Best musical

What a dismal showing this year. Last year had Frozen, which tailed into this year, world without end, amen, with a long icy tail like Halley's comet. When are we going to have the "Let it Go" of videogames? We'll never ...more
