2015 BAFTA Nominations Announced: here's the list in full

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA to its mates) have announced the videogame nominations for this year's awards. It's still one of the few genuinely respectful and serious game award ceremonies around, and contains a pleasing mix of games from mobile apps to monstrous franchises.

Some games stick out more than others, though. Alien Isolation is leading the pack with six nominations for everything from Audio Achievement to Best Game and Best British Game. We described it as "terrifying" in our full review, and you can still get Alien Isolation for under £15 on PS4.

Fellow Best game competitors include Destiny, Dragon Age Inquisition, Mario Kart 8 and Shadow Of Mordor. One of these games might seem to be slightly out of place, perhaps...

We've got the entire list of BAFTA nominations below ahead of the ceremony on March 12th. Tell us what you make of them!
