Now Playing: God Of War - Best Games Of 2018

This year's British Academy Games Awards are happening soon, and BAFTA has now revealed the full list of nominations for 2019. God of War leads the way with 10 nominations, while there are six nominations each for Red Dead Redemption 2, Florence, and Return of the Obra Dinn. Celeste, meanwhile, is up for five awards.

The most prestigious award handed out at the ceremony--which takes place on April 4 in London--is the Best Game award. The nominees for that category are Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Astro Bot: Rescue Mission, and the aforementioned quartet of Celeste, God of War, Red Dead Redemption 2, and Return of the Obra Dinn. British Game, meanwhile, will be contested by 11-11: Memories Retold, Forza Horizon 4, Red Dead Redemption 2, The Room: Old Sins, Overcooked 2, and Two Point Hospital.

The awards are voted on by BAFTA membership. The only award decided by the public is Mobile Game of the Year, which you can vote for here. The nominees for that are Brawl Stars, Clash Royale, Fortnite, Old School Runescape, Pokemon Go, and Roblox.

You can see the full list of nominees below. Which games do you think should win? Let us know in the comments!

BAFTAs are a bit of a joke to be honest.

Going to come down to God of War or Red Dead 2 for the top honors. Glad God of War is getting the recognition from the industry it deserves especially against a juggernaut like Red Dead 2 (a title many thought/think will just walk away with all awards unopposed.).

Hopefully God of War’s acclaim critically and commercially will show other budding game developers that nothing beats a good old classic polished single player experience despite the fads going on in the gaming world today.

Pretty good list to be fair.

How strange! Neither of these are "games as a service". Neither (with the exclusion of Red Dead Online) needs to monetize players after they already paid full price for the game.

"How do they do it?" EA asks.
