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
