In the last few years the British Academy Games Awards – or gaming BAFTAs – has firmly established itself as among the most prestigious events in the gaming calendar. And this year we'll be there to get all the reaction from the evening's winners and losers.

The event will be hosted, as it has the last several years, by comedian and go-to famous gamer Dara O'Briain, while picking up an Academy Fellowship will be none other than Valve's Gabe Newell.

But before the festivities commence we wanted to get your thoughts on who you think should be the big winners on the night. Is Dishonored the year's best game? Was Journey really all that? And just what is Super Monsters Ate My Condo all about?

We'd also like to know if you have any particular questions you'd like to ask the attending nominees, who are listed below. And, yes, we've already lined up “When will Half Life 3 be coming out?” for Mr Newell...
