Well..BAFTA awards mean nothing to me. For example, according to BAFTA. Fallout 4 won game of the year in 2015. Imagine that. Credibility below Zero.
Their 2017 winner is What Remains of Edith Finch, an awful game imo, a waste of time.
All their decisions i never liked except for one major one, the 2019 winner which was Outer Wilds, thats the only good choice they have made, still not enough to make them credible to me.

Cyberpunk for artistic achievement, please.

Don't really care about the others, but I hope Ghost of Tsushima takes the rest.

I thought the art direction on Cyberpunk 2077 was pretty good, the artsy visuals make the city look very nice. I have no fucking clue where Ori 2 is though! how could they miss that one when it comes to artsy visuals!!?

The Last of Us Part 2 was NOT nominated for best narrative? probably deserves praise for this decision lol.

Anybody here thinks Cyberpunk 2077 should be nominated for best music/soundtracks? I mean just compared to the ones they nominated it seems Cyberpunk stands a chance, or am i mistaken?

Anyway, i dont care who wins, no big favorites for me this year, generally it was just decent compared to other better years, like 2019 for me was miles better. In case some games win, probably Half Life is a good choice for innovation.

So basically blockbuster AAA walking simulators with set pieces and scraps for everybody else. Nice going BAFTA.

Which walking simulators?

Hades is (deservedly) nominated 10 times. "Scraps"? Not seeing it.

The fact that TLOU2 was not nomitated for best Narrative already proves BAFTA knows what its doing. And no, its not sarcasm. TLOU2 deserves alot of awards in many categories, but the story of the game was the reason i disliked it so much especially compared to the 1st one that was a masterpiece to me.

Quite the opposite. Valhala, GoT and Cyberpunk being nominated means the people voting like safe, non thought provoking, basic as basic gets narratives. Kind of disappointing honestly.

CHERAMI LEIGH as Female V in Cyberpunk 2077

I've played quite a bit as male and female V and I wouldn't say that one of them is significantly better than the other.

So...The Last of Us 2 gets nominated for everything BUT Narrative? What? 🤨

Also...Miles Morales getting a GOTY/Music nomination over Final Fantasy VII Remake?!

Utterly bizarre list. What a bunch of fucking weirdos...

I would.
Female V is a lot better than Male V. It almost feels that its the canon.

I can't expect much from BAFTA to be honest. I don't even know if those guys listen game musics or rather play games while using Spotify.

Even Genshin Impact have a better OST than Spider-Man, but whatever suits them.

God damn, as per usual, congrats Sony for so many award nominations and congrats both Ghosts and TLOU2 for so many nominations. I'm pulling for TLOU2
