Journey Leads List Of BAFTA Nominees

The British Academy of Film and Television has announced the nominees for its Games Awards. The three titles with the most possible honors are Thatgamecompany's Journey, along with Telltale's The Walking Dead, and Ubisoft's Far Cry 3.

Journey is up for eight awards, including BAFTA's Best Game award. The PS3 exclusive is up against Dishonored, Far Cry 3, FIFA 13, Mass Effect 3, and The Walking Dead in that category. The Walking Dead has earned seven nominations, and Far Cry 3 rounds out the top of the pack with six.
