Control Gets 11 Nominations At 2020 BAFTA Games Awards

Death Stranding also nets several nominations

6 Comments

Game awards season isn't over quite yet, as the British Academy of Film and Television Arts has revealed its nominees for the 2020 BAFTA Games Awards. Remedy Entertainment's Control was one of the most-celebrated nominees, competing in 11 different categories, including Best Game. It was also nominated in categories like Performer in a Leading Role, Animation, Game Design, and Music. Its incredible Ashtray Maze scene could be the reason for the latter nomination.

Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding continues to impress with nominations in categories like Performer in a Leading Role, Technical Achievement, Audio Achievement, Animation, Artistic Achievement, and Best Game. Kallie Plagge was also a big fan, calling it "unrelenting in its earnestness and optimism" in GameSpot's Death Stranding review.

Now Playing: Control | Best Games Of 2019

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, which took home The Game Awards' top honors, is nominated for Best Game, Game Design, Animation, and Technical Achievement. Developer From Software is wasting no time creating its next game Elden Ring, which was revealed at E3 2019 and is available for pre-order.

One of the most competitive categories this year will be Best Narrative, as it's split across several different genres and game sizes.
