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?
