GOONL!NE BAFTA 2010 predictions

With the video game BAFTA’s happening this Friday, we at GOONL!NE thought we’d give you our thoughts on who could be in for what award this year.

First up is the award for Action games. The nominations in this category are Assassin’s Creed II, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, inFAMOUS, Left 4 Dead 2, and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

It was our game of the year, and to be honest, we’re having a hard time looking past it again. The other titles are all fantastic and deserve recognition but;

The award for Best Game features many of the same names mentioned above, withAssassin’s Creed II, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, FIFA 10, Left 4 Dead 2 and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves all gunning for this top award.
