GameSpot UK's inaugural BAFTA predictions

Mark, Jane, Guy, and Seb try to pick the winners at next week's gaming awards.

On Wednesday, March 16, the 2011 BAFTA Video Game Awards will be taking place in London. GameSpot UK will be there covering the ceremony in video, photo, and written form, but in the meantime, we decided to try to predict who's going to win in each category. No competition is worth holding without a forfeit, however, and the member of the team with the least correct guesses (aka the loser) will have to bake everyone else a cake. Preferably a delicious cake.
