    Dishonoured was great fun. I don't have a PS3 to play journey sadly, but I know it's meant to be one of the best games on the console.
    Far Cry was excellent, even with the horrific storyline.
    Thomas was Alone, Danny Wallace. I'm surprised, but not unimpressed. He did do an excellent job, but I would never have expected such a small game to get a Bafta.

    BAFTA stands for British Academy of Film and Television Arts.
    Why are they trying to do video game awards ? Does British TV suck that much ?

    The game's set designer Viktor Antonov (architect of Half-Life 2's City 17) thanks his wife and apologizes to the British for the game's Americanized spelling.
    Ah, The Guardian pulling a funny

    Anyway, loved Dishonoured, although it did a get a bit easy once you knew your way around.

    I thought Far Cry 3 was better. Oh well, I'll live with the news.

    Far Cry 3 best (IMO) but what about Borderlands 2?

    Journey?! Never heard of it... perhaps next year they should have a "Games for chicks" category to "award" this kind of arty stuff.

    Keep getting Steam "special offers" on this - is it any good? Looked at a couple of YouTube vids and it looks like an Assassin's Creed 2 "homage" with added magical powers. Could do with something to make up for the disappointment (so far) that is AC3.

    If memory serves me rightly, the argument was that the big budget game titles have "production values" that are big/good enough to sit alongside films/tv's. Probably reasonable, given that you've got scriptwriters, voice and mocap actors, score writers, etc on games, tv and film.
    More justifiable than having Israel in Eurovision imho.

    If you point proudly at reality shows as the "highlight" of your TV output then yes - British TV does suck. On the other hand I'll argue that there's a lot of less popular shows that are pretty good. Oh, and I'll argue to my last breath that UK kids and news programmes are better than their US equivalents. What I'd like to know is where have all the decent comedy shows gone - there seem to have been a lot more decent shows in the past. (sorry, off topic I know).

    What does really annoy me is the amount of these back-slapping "awards" shows we're getting.

    How Natural Selection 2 wasn't up there is beyond me.

    Well it's not beyond me, it's made by a very small indie studio that doesn't have a marketing budget the size of Mars...

    But it's probably my favourite game of all time (I loved the original NS mod for half life a decade ago), so I'm biased

    I found it a very slick, satisfying game. You find yourself dragged into the world and the story quite convincingly.
    It is great fun exploring the world when you aren't sure what you will find, there are lots of little touches that make it feel quite special.

    There is some replay value with two different endings and many different ways to complete each mission. What does limit it, is that once you find the easy way of doing each mission the challenge level drops massively.

    Mind you I'd have been quite happy paying the money just for the first play-through alone.
