With the red carpet only recently rolled up following the British Academy Film Awards, BAFTA has announced the nominees for the British Academy Games Awards.

PSN-exclusive Journey leads the way with no less than eight nominations, including one for Best Game. The Walking Dead shuffles closely behind with seven noms, Far Cry 3 has six and arty farty PC and Mac title Dear Esther (which is brilliant, btw) has five.

Halo 4, Borderlands 2, Assassin's Creed 3 and The Room (iOS), meanwhile, each have four nominations. You can read the whole, very long, list below.

The awards themselves take place on Tuesday, 5th March at the London Hilton on Park Lane, with comedian Dara O'Briain taking on hosting duties. Dara O’Brian, unless you didn’t know, is a proper gamer who even does stand-up on the subject. So bless him for that.

UK viewers can watch the awards on the Challenge television channel (Sky 125, Freeview 46, Virgin 139) on Monday, 11th March at 10pm.
