BAFTA 2013 video game nominations revealed

Journey, The Walking Dead, Far Cry 3 and Dear Esther highly praised.

The nominees for the British Academy Games Awards 2013 (BAFTA) have been revealed.

Surprisingly (to me at least), it's superb PSN game Journey that leads the line-up with eight nominations including Best Game.

The Walking Dead has seven nominations, Far Cry 3 six nominations and Dear Esther five nominations.

There are four games with four nominations: Halo 4, Borderlands 2, Assassin's Creed 3 and The Room.

The British Academy Games Awards take place on Tuesday, 5th March at the London Hilton on Park Lane. Comedian Dara O'Briain will host the event, which will be aired on the Challenge television channel (Sky 125, Freeview 46, Virgin 139) on Monday, 11th March at 10pm.

The BAFTA games awards will also be streamed live on Twitch.
