Uncharted 3 Up for BAFTA Game of 2011

Posted by James Newton

Test of Drake's fortune

One of the best PS3 games of last year — heck, of any year — is up for this year's BAFTA GAME Award.

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception has been nominated in the only category determined by public votes, which means you have a real chance to shape its outcome.

You can head over and vote for Uncharted 3 — or, you know, any other game on the short list — and wait anxiously for the results to be announced on Friday 16th March.

Here's the rest of the contenders. Looking down the list it's hard not to argue that 2011 was a pretty good year for games, really.

Batman: Arkham City
Battlefield 3
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
LA Noire
Portal 2
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

@eliotgballade Yeah, same here. Skyrim and Uncharted were my favourite games of the year, but I think Skyrim's technical woes knock it down the list for me.

@get2sammyb I would agree, they were the 2 best games for me along with Mass Effect 2 (although I suppose it doesn't count since it was a later release on PS3). Skyrim would win my vote hands down, if not for the technical problems... Most of which are hopefully fixed with this coming patch! Though I won't hold my breath.

Anyway, Uncharted 3 more than deserves it I think.

Voted Skyward Sword. Why?

Batman: Arkham City: The story didn't make sense at all, and I'm not a fan of the combat or the art style. I know many people enjoy the combat, I do not.

Battlefield 3: Great PC Multiplayer, poor single player, overall average game.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: Incredible disappointment all around and I will never buy another CoD game again. Another game that promotes Kill/Death ratio above all else even in objective games. Support Class has no good rewards and is made useless by Assassin Perk.

FIFA 12: I don't buy sport games that try to be realistic.

LA Noire: Started out good as a murder detective game but the game got worse and worse as you kept playing until it was downright terrible and incredibly boring. I'm not a fan of the "realistic scanned faces concept" either. Rather the realistic, the faces ended up ugly and creepy.

Minecraft: Very fun... with mods and player made content. Fun without as a survival and construction game (I made myself a castle) but mods and player made content really make it shine as a game.

Portal 2: Good game, nothing that special though.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim: Fantastic with mods on PC, average without. Also, Bethesda is apparently intent on never bug testing their games at all. The lists of bugs and glitches that matter are huge.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword: The character designs and personalities are amazing, the game play is fun and varied, the places you explore are amazing, there are some hiccups in the UI but nothing that ruins the game. I find myself smiling all the time while playing, just talking to people and listening to their responses, and eager to see what comes next.

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception: Uncharted 1 and 2 were fantastic, 3 was utter garbage. It pretty much took out everything that made 1 and 2 good.
