'Bioshock' Gets Big Ups From AIAS


Posted January 18, 2008 - By Ty Colfax

The impending 11th annual Interactive Achievement Awards, which is put on by The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences, has announced the nominees for this year’s show which will take place February 7, in Las Vegas.

Bioshock is up for a record-breaking 12 awards, with Call of Duty 4 up for 10. We’ve scanned the list of nominees and are surprised to find only one Halo 3 nod, and it’s for Action Game of the Year. Not to take away from the other games nominated in every category, but surely they can find room for the best selling game of 2007. While it's not a 10 out of 10, it is important for the industry to have blockbusters that bring mainstreamers over and get people to buy next gen consoles. And hey, it's pretty close to a 10 - certainly up there with the other "Overall" nominees.

After the jump is a partial list of nominations.
