2009 Video Game BAFTA's Confirmed

Has it been a strong year for video games? BAFTA have announced their annual honouring night to take place on March 10, 2009.

There are 13 awards categories Action & Adventure, Artistic Achievement, Best Game, Casual, Gameplay, Multiplayer, Original Score, Sports, Strategy, Story & Character, Technical Achievement, Use of Audio and a new Handheld category which includes games for mobiles phones, Sony PSP, Nintendo DS and Nintendo GBA.

Okay okay, it's probably about 6 months to early to even think about this, especially as we've seen a rather big drought in games for Wii of late, hopefully things will pick up soon else it's going to be a very boring award show.

It remains to be seen if fans pay any attention to the BAFTA awards, perhaps its more for the industry employees?
