BAFTA Games 2017 Nominations

The 2017 British Academy Games Awards have released the nominations for this year’s ceremony, which takes place on Thursday the 6th of April. Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End leads the list with eight nominations. Indie masterpiece Inside has seven nominations, and the equally impressive Firewatch has six. Uncharted 4 will undoubtedly come away with the most awards, and it is a game we loved here at Gaming Respawn, with Alec awarding it a prestigious 100% and remarking in his review:

Emotionally-driven narrative that’s beautiful to watch and provides genuinely compelling gameplay, packed with complex characters and enthralling set pieces.
