Super Mario Galaxy 2 up for BAFTA Game of the Year
Posted by Trevor Chan
As the only Nintendo platform game up for nomination, do your bit and vote now!
It's that time of the year again, when gamers have the opportunity to vote which title should win the GAME Award 2010 recognition at the annual British Academy Video Game Awards.
The GAME Award is the only category that's open to public voting, so you better make the most of it. Super Mario Galaxy won the Best Game 2007 category, beating high-profile competition from the likes of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Grand Theft Auto IV, and Fable II. Plumber knows how to do his thing! This year, high-flying sequel Super Mario Galaxy 2 is the only game on a Nintendo platform (and a Wii exclusive too) up for the award and faces stiff competition once again, but with your votes, hopefully it can take the top spot like its predecessor.
When we announced our Game of the Year awards last month, Super Mario Galaxy 2 did exceptionally well by earning the accolades of Nintendo Life's Game of the Year, Wii Game of the Year, Best Visuals, and Best Sound. It also took the top spot in our Reader's Choice Awards 2010 as voted by you. But hey, you can never have too many awards, can you?
To vote on the BAFTA Game of the Year Award, head over to the official voting page and register the game that you think should take the crown of GAME Award 2010. By casting your vote, you can enter yourself into a prize draw where you can stand a chance to win a Microsoft home entertainment system. The nominations this year are:
- Call of Duty: Black Ops
- Dance Central
- FIFA 11
- Halo Reach
- Heavy Rain
- Mass Effect 2
- Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit
- Red Dead Redemption
- Super Mario Galaxy 2
The BAFTA Awards will take place at The London Hilton on Park Lane on Wednesday, 16th March. The event will once again be presented by Dara O'Briain.
