BAFTA Awards – PS3 Attitude Predictions

Submitted by on Thursday, 18 March 20103 Comments

BAFTA logo e1268930810334 BAFTA Awards   PS3 Attitude PredictionsYes it’s BAFTA time again.  A time to celebrate the year that was, and for the Internet to tear itself asunder disagreeing about the winners and losers of each category.

So, who do Team Attitude think will take home the spoils?

The good people at VoucherCodes.co.uk have decided this year’s BAFTA’s need a bit of spicing up, and have duly set up a little competition for games journalists.  The aim is to predict the winner of each BAFTA category, with each correct guess winning a point, but each incorrect guess losing a point.

Never ones to shy away from a challenge, Team Attitude have thrown their collective hats into the ring.

So lets get down to business then.  We will list the nominees for each category, and then our pick for the winner.

Action

  • Assassin’s Creed II
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  • inFAMOUS
  • Left 4 Dead 2
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

A tough call, but for sheer thrills we think Uncharted 2: Among Thieves gives Batman a bloody nose, and leaves Call of Duty stuck in the desert, and will deservedly take the win.

Artistic Achievement

  • Assassin’s Creed II
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  • Flower
  • Streetfighter IV
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

A strange one this, as art is subjective.  Flower would be the obvious choice for this category.

Best Game

  • Assassin’s Creed II
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  • FIFA 10
  • Left 4 Dead 2
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Fighting off a serious case of de ja vu, we think Uncharted 2: Among Thieves will take home the treasure.

Family & Social

  • The Beatles: Rock Band
  • Buzz! Quiz World
  • EyePet
  • Guitar Hero 5
  • New Super Mario Bros Wii
  • Wii Sports Resort

All hail New Super Mario Bros Wii, which we feel has to be the clear winner in this section.

Gameplay

  • Assassin’s Creed II
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  • New Super Mario Bros Wii
  • PixelJunk Shooter
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Without meaning to sound like a broken record, we think that, once again, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves will take this category.  With its mixture of climbing, puzzles and shooting, it combines into one package everything that makes all the other games great.  Oh Drake, how you have stolen our hearts.

Handheld

  • Gran Turismo
  • LittleBigPlanet (PSP)
  • LocoRoco Midnight Carnival
  • Mario and Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story
  • Professor Layton and Pandora’s Box
  • Scribblenauts

This is a category where heads need to rule over hearts.  In a dream world, Gran Turismo or Scribblenauts would romp to victory, leaving hoof prints all over their rivals.  However, Nintendo have put all their might behind both the Mario and Luigi, and Professor Layton games.  Our prediction?  Ah heck, lets go with Scribblenauts!

Multiplayer

  • Battlefield 1943
  • The Beatles: Rock Band
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  • Halo 3 ODST
  • Left 4 Dead 2
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Only a crazy person would bet against the might of Call of Duty in this category.  We aren’t quite that crazy, so we predict Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

Original Score

  • Assassin’s Creed II
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  • Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
  • PixelJunk Shooter
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

We can see this one causing arguments, but our choice is PixelJunk Shooter.

Sports

  • Colin McRae: DiRT 2
  • FIFA 10
  • Football Manager 2010
  • Forza 3
  • Wii Fit Plus
  • Wii Sports Resort

Whoever put Wii Fit Plus in here needs either stronger or weaker pills.  Our prediction is FIFA 10, EA have finally cracked it with this one.

Story

  • Assassin’s Creed II
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum
  • Broken Sword – Shadow of the Templars: The Director’s Cut
  • Brutal Legend
  • Dragon Age: Origins
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Ouch, other Internet breaker.  The two standouts are Assassin’s Creed II and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.  Decisions….decisions…ok, we predict Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

Strategy

  • Command and Conquer 3: Uprising
  • Empire: Total War
  • FIFA Manager 10
  • Football Manager 2010
  • Halo Wars
  • Plants vs Zombies

We think Halo Wars will take this one – a shame as Plants vs Zombies was a real little charmer.

Use of Audio

  • Batman: Arkham Asylum
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  • DJ Hero
  • Flower
  • Left 4 Dead 2
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

We predict Batman: Arkham Asylum for this one.  Be it the moody music or constant wittering of the Joker, you were constantly immersed in the world.

Use of Online

  • Battlefield 1943
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  • FIFA 10
  • LittleBigPlanet (PSP)
  • Singstar TakeThat
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Poor LittleBigPlanet – the game deserved to do so much better, and yet the last time we went online there was a pitifully small selection of user created levels there.  Our prediction is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

GAME award

  • Assassin’s Creed II
  • Batman Arkham Asylum
  • The Beatles: Rockband
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
  • FIFA 10
  • GTA China Town Wars
  • Legend of Zelda Spirit Tracks
  • Street Fighter IV
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
  • Wii Sports Resort

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is our prediction.  This immense, witty and graphically amazing game needs to be sampled by all.

So there you have it folks, we will update you with how we did in due course.  In the meantime why don’t you tell us how you think we did.

This should be an interesting one!
