BAFTA game nominees announced

BAFTA game nominees announced

The line up of possible winners this year include BioShock, Gears of War, Elite Beat Agents and Wii Sports.

It's that time of year again when the BAFTA nominees are announced and everybody starts flaming each other about what games are best and which games are even better.

We've got the full list of nominees below, so have a read through and be sure to drop your thoughts in the forums.

Personally, our main concern is about the best games category. That section has two currently unreleased games, Kane and Lynch and Crysis - yet at the same time, Guitar Hero II is listed and not the upcoming Guitar Hero III.

Confusing, no?

how can u put crysis in best game...yet not technical achievment? surely the cryengine 2 is a huge step in technical achievements? there be some odd games in each section IMO

How can you possibly put a game in for best game which hasn't even had a decent demo out for it!
Duste 27th September 2007, 12:47 Quote
Wii Sports all the way imo.

Likewise, how can the Orange Box be in there when it hasn't even been released yet?

If Bioshock or Okami don't win the Artistic achievement award then someone needs their head checking.

not being funny, but there are games there that are currently unreleased and then Sup Com doesnt appear in the strategy section. Having played sup com first, and now tiberium wars and world in conflict, sup com is the favourite as it allows for the most possibilties and allows competent players to excel, the other 2 bring nothing particularly new and leave me frustrated that i can't do things that i can in supcom like queueing builds, attacks etc etc....maybe supcom fell outside the guidelines for BAFTA, i dont know, i dont normally follow the BAFTA's but i'm disappointed to not see it in there.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BAFTA'S (that being my shortened, more adolescent response)

peace

Bioshock for best artistic achievement and game of the year should also be in for best use of audio cause tbh the games they got in there are dire at using sound and dont build up the atmosphere anywhere near as well.

Although we all know Wii Sports will win game of the year because the BAFTA games awards are a joke which I doubt anyone takes seriously....or at least I wouldnt

I mean look at stratergy and simulation what a joke wheres the stratergy and simulation on Wii sports? Its a bloody tech demo nothing more.

'Cake Mania'?
Is that the same as 'Comfy cakes' in Purble Palace?
drakanious 27th September 2007, 15:52 Quote
Yes, why no SupCom?

Also, BOOOO BAFTA.

um, where is Halo 3? I know it was just released, but as others have pointed out there are games included that have not been released yet.
Jordan Wise 27th September 2007, 17:48 Quote
bioshock for absolutely everything, including best sports game. Hunting splicers is the greatest form of sport i have seen
proxess 27th September 2007, 20:05 Quote
Wii by storm! I don't think Un-released should be there.
completemadness 27th September 2007, 23:18 Quote

malcolm 27th September 2007, 23:18 Quote
The BAFTAs are run by twats that arse it up every year, I don't know why everybody is surprised
fwalm 28th September 2007, 16:28 Quote
Well Gears of War wasn't on the best multiplayer and well it easily beat every other 360 game, wasn;t hard at that time but anyway. Plus if Halo 3 isn't there yet other unreleased games are, it's a joke.
