The 6th BAFTA Game Awards will be coming March 19th, and for the second year running GAME will be hosting the public vote for the nations best game of 09. To add a bit of incentive to vote you have a chance to win a Sony home entertainment system. As well as all voters getting a wallpaper pack for the game they voted on.
This years show will be hosted by Irish Comedian and avid gamer Dara O’Brien, who hosted last years awards ceremony as well.
The shortlist for the Peoples Choice is:
- Assassins Creed 2
- Batman Arkham Asylum
- The Beatles Rockband
- Modern Warfare 2
- FIFA 10
- Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
- Legend of Zelda Spirit Tracks
- Street Fighter IV
- Uncharted 2
- Wii Sports Resort
When the awards have taken place I’ll update on the winners of the awards ceremony, and add any videos if possible.
I can see this being a 3-horse race between Assassin’s Creed 2, Uncharted 2 and Modern Warfare 2.
I have to say though, I’m personally rooting for the underdogs in this, Arkham Asylum and Chinatown Wars. Batman, from what I gather (I haven’t played it) is an awesome game and really does the license proud on it, and Chinatown Wars, well that could nearly be a whole post in itself, but having the same game rebuilt from the fround up 3 times for 3 different handhelds, and all 3 receiving critical acclaim, that shows skill in development and well worth a gong imo.
You really should play Batman, if you have any interest in the series, even if it’s just from the movies (That was my only prior knowledge) it’s a really fun game, almost zelda-esque game. Check it out, very fun
