BAFTA nominees announced

When people think of the BAFTAs, they usually think of the drunken lovey- fest that is their film and telly awards. However, the academy also produce a rather excellent games award ceremony every year, which is probably just as drunken but less full of self-importance, and not on the box.

Anyway, the nominations for this year’s event have been announced, and we’re so nice that we’ve given you the full list (be warned: it’s very long) to check out. As you can imagine Assassin's Creed 2 - our pic for game of the year by a long way - and Modern Warfare 2 are up for a load of gongs, so expect them to battle it out for the big prizes. Try not to fall over with excitement, eh?
