BAFTA Video Game Award Nominees Announced

Today, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts announced their list of nominees for 2011's game of the year, and it looks pretty close to most other GOTY lists you've seen up until now. Arkahm City, Modern Warfare 3, and Portal 2 top the list which has a slightly European twist with the nomination for FIFA 12. I wanted to comment on the lack of smaller, downloadable titles like Bastion, but Minecraft—although it's pretty much an institution—more or less fits that bill.

You can see the nominees after the break.

Batman: Arkham City

Battlefield 3

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

FIFA 12

L.A. Noire

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Minecraft

Portal 2

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

The BAFTAs also have an Audience Award, meaning you can vote for your favorite title from the list on the BAFTA Game Awards website. The winners will be announced on March 16th.
