Batman: Arkham Asylum Wins BAFTA Game Of The Year

The 2011 GAME British Academy Video Game Awards nominations were announced today, and Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood led the field with seven nods, followed by Quantic Dreams’ Heavy Rain and Treyarch’s Call of Duty: Black Ops, both of which received six nominations.


This year’s marks the first appearance of the Social Network Game category, which includes such popular games as Bejeweled Blitz and FIFA Superstars, but, strangely enough, doesn’t include any games from social games juggernaut Zynga, even though the developer released two wildly popular games last year in CityVille and FrontierVille.

Other multiple nominees include BioWare’s recent Interactive Achievement Award 2010 winner for Best Game, Mass Effect 2, which received five nominations, and Playdead’s Indie Game Challenge winner, Limbo, which came away with four nods.

In case you were wondering why Rockstar Games' critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption hasn't been mentioned yet, it's because the developer declined to submit its hit western for this year’s awards for reasons unknown. However, fans can still cast their vote for the game for this year’s GAME Award, which is the only award decided by the public.
