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
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
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.
