THE GAME AWARD 2009

The 2010 GAME British Academy Video Games Awards were held on March 16th 2011 at the London Hilton Hotel on Park Lane. Some of the biggest names from games and TV got dressed up to the nines to celebrate the best and brightest in gaming in 2010.

For an unprecedented third year in a row, the award for Game of the Year went to Call of Duty: Black Ops. Champagne flowed quite freely for Activision for the rest of the evening, and rightly so!

A great night was had by all with some very deserving winners all round.

    Batman: Arkham City

    Batman returned this year, bigger, badder and broodier than ever. Batman: Arkham City, the follow-up to the smash hit Arkham Asylum, brings more bad guys, more locations... more everything. Arkham City is a visually-stunning third person adventure where, as Batman, you keep the streets of Arkham City clean from Gotham's criminal scum. You see, Batman's not trapped in there with them - they're trapped with him...

    This sequel did not disappoint, building and improving upon everything that made the award-winning Arkham Asylum so great. The intuitive fighting system now includes new special moves like the Knockdown Smash. The gadgets are also back and can now be used in combat as well.

    Add to this a dramatic storyline, numerous side missions and downloadable content, and the inclusion of Catwoman as a playable character with her own adventures, the possibilities for gameplay are as limitless as Batman's quest for justice.

    Lauded as not only the best comic book video game, but among the best comic book adaptations in any media, Batman: Arkham City is as close to actually being Batman as you are ever likely to get!

    Arkham Asylum was brilliant, this is even better! great gadgets, loads more villains, side missions, more to do, more playable characters, amazing!

    Game of the year? Lewis posted on 25th October 2011
    Okay I will say right of the BAT...ha. I am a big Batman fan. So any game that comes out I am likely to get. However Arkham City puts every single Batman game and most other video games out there to shame. The Story for one is absolutely amazing, it will keep you on your toes and if you're a fan of the Bat you'll eat this up. Gameplay has been refined and tuned to a degree of perfection not seen in many games, the combat in this game is completely flawless and fun. A game has never been so close to making you feel like Batman. There really is some much to cover in this game, I just can't mention it all. Just buy it, a game has never been so worthy of your money. A definite game of the year contender.

    Become the Bat!! Ian posted on 1st November 2011
    An improvement on Arkham Asylum which is something I never thought would be possible as it was an extremely polished title. Lots of side missions and a great story. A must buy title! What's next for the Bat??

    Battlefield 3

    The big names in first-person shooters went head-to-head this year. Battlefield 3 came out first with all the gusto you'd expect from US Marines taking down terrorists, and it did not disappoint.

    The multiplayer mode is where Battlefield has always shined brightest, and boy did Battlefield 3 shine. Thanks to the large, expansive maps, online battles can be fought on a massive scale. This means each player can have their own story to tell and moment of glory, but teamwork is still the aim of the game - rewards aren't just given for how well you take out your enemies, but for how well you work with your comrades.

    The new Frostbite 2 engine promised better graphics, animation, lighting and effects, and delivered just that. DICE's new engine also boasts destructible environments, immersing players in combat like never before. The chance to jump into jeeps, tanks and jets added another way to experience - and enjoy - the carnage.

    Battlefield 3 is all about playing together and succeeding together... and blowing stuff up together!

    The true sequel to Battlefield 2, this game is next gen gaming right now. If you prefer more team based strategic first person shooters then this is the game for you. Hands down the best shooter I have played for a long time.

    The best multiplayer FPS in years! Nick posted on 11th November 2011
    Battlefield 3 takes the cake when it comes to multiplayer warfare. Amazing physical destruction, slick controls, free extensive stat tracking and astounding gun play, this game is a must buy for any lovers of First person shooters.

    Is it me or am I actually in this war?! Scott posted on 8th November 2011
    This game has been the most realistic war game I have ever played, the campaign is jaw dropping and it's been hard for me to get off this game. 10/10 for me this is what a war game is and should be!

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

    It's not really a surprise to see Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on this shortlist. The COD series has won this category an unprecedented 3 times before - can they do it again this year?

    This year it's the turn of Infinity Ward and once again, the single player campaign is the heartbeat of the game. Modern Warfare 3 picks up where MW2 left off - crazed Russian Markarov running wild and you have to stop him. The battles take place in cool locations like New York, London and Paris, all rendered with the same explosive flair we've come to expect from Call of Duty.

    Modern Warfare 3 also steps up a pace in the co-op and multiplayer modes. There are more games like Spec Ops and Survival, new rules (capture and keep the flag for as long as possible), new weapons and, with the Killstreak replaced by Pointstreak, new ways to win - all in all, enough to keep you going for hours, weeks... even months.

    Modern Warfare 3 gives you the chance to finish the story told in the last chapter, and the opportunity to keep playing multiplayer until the next one arrives. You can't really ask for more, can you?

    Insane MW3 OLLID97 posted on 28th December 2011
    By far the best Call of Duty - MW3 has blown me away. The awesome campaign carried on from MW2 and the new survival was an epic idea and works so well. The multiplayer is by far the best and the new guns and maps are sooooo good!!

    Better than Black Ops ULTRASTROP posted on 19th December 2011
    It's a cracker. The COD series seems to get better and better. Graphics are cool and the multiplayer is excellent. Added to that the COD Elite then you have one of the games of the year.

    If you liked MW3, you'll love MW3 jbmp posted on 17th November 2011
    This is MW2 but beefed up and made better in so many ways. Multiplayer is almost the same, but there are new attachments to weapons and unlocks you can have for it like less kick. Another new awesome feature is Survival Mode. Survival mode is where waves of enemies with weapons try to kill you while you try and hold out as long as possible. You can do this with 4 friends online and 2 split-screen. Spec ops here is also a lot better with the feature to do them online with other players. You also level up in spec ops which gives you more weapons and items in survival. The campaign is as epic as it gets for FPS games, with an amazing storyline and exciting missions. If you like CoD or FPS's, this is a must buy.

    FIFA 12

    FIFA 11 was good. Well, better than good. Well received, enjoyed by gamers and nominated for last year's Game of the Year award. But when it comes to EA and FIFA, there's always something more that can be done, and FIFA 12 promised even more realistic gameplay than ever before.

    There were three major changes with this year's game. Precision Dribbling increased control of the ball. Tactical Defending increased precision and importance on the positions and actions of your defender. But the biggest change was the Impact Engine, which introduced realism to player collisions and stumbles based on where you're hit, and how hard. A game changer in every sense of the word.

    FIFA 12 also upped the online side of the game, increasing interactivity - and competition - with Head to Head Seasons, and launching the EA Sports Football Club where the XP of you, your friends and fellow supporters can affect the online league positions of your chosen teams.

    FIFA 12 was the fastest selling sports game ever. Well, when you push the boundaries of what's expected in a football game and everyone loves you for it, it's easy to see why.

    FIFA 12 Gary posted on 20th December 2011
    The greatest Football game returns... After counting down the days for the release, EA did not disappoint. FIFA 12 was released back in October and I haven't put the game down. The FIFA Ultimate Team function is extremely addictive and can be quite costly, through the online platform of purchasing 'packs' of players. The dynamics of creating a team and playing online against other custom teams in really enjoyable. The new defending system does take a while to get used to but ultimately provides a more realistic experience of the beautiful game. When it comes to football, FIFA 12 is almost as good as the real thing...

    FIFA 12 Joe posted on 29th October 2011
    Best FIFA yet, improved every aspect of FIFA 11. Better graphics, new skills, career mode more interesting with scouting, youth team and morale levels of players. Defending is alot harder but improves game play massively. Amazing game and reccommend to anyone not sure whether to buy after FIFA 11.

    FIFA 12 Brandon posted on 17th October 2011
    Some great new improvements to the previous FIFA titles, on the higher difficulties the game actually flows like real life matches. The new defensive system also adds more tactical choices to be made in matches. Multiplayer has been improved too, the new head to head seasons mode as well as online friendlies so that you can properly track your performance and keep a tally of your wins. Overall, I think this is a great game and would recommend it.

    L.A. Noire

    Rockstar Games are here again. After doing urban action with the GTA series, and rejuvenating the western with last year's nominee Red Dead Redemption, they've turned their hands to the moody crime thriller with L.A. Noire.

    As before, Rockstar have taken everything you expect from a genre movie - in this instance, mobsters, murder, corruption, jazz music and a hard-boiled detective - and put them into a thoroughly addictive game. But this time they've swapped action and firefights for a crime-solving approach that requires a keen eye, attention to detail, and no second chances.

    Key to this is the revolutionary motion capture technology that reads even the smallest detail of the actor's performance. Every wink, wince and swallow is there in stunning detail, and could be the clue that makes or breaks your case.

    L.A. Noire blurs the lines between a game and a movie, potentially redefining what gaming can be.

    The game itself may have a slower approach, but Rockstar clealry show no signs of slowing down and look to have struck gold again.

    LA. Noire is arguably one of the best games that I have ever owned, from beat cop to arson inspector you will experience a unique take on the 1940s crime in a very authentic way. The graphics and facial expressions are far from just hype by the developers and is very well done. I loved LA. Noire and would recommend it to anyone, personally I would buy a sequel if it is in the pipeline because this game left a lasting impression on me.

    A Game? An Interactive Film? Or Both? Bacon posted on 17th September 2011
    Fantastic game, Rockstar moved away from the driving around blasting everything, or riding around adventuring (and shooting the place up). L.A. Noire is a game that requires thought, something lacking in a great many games nowadays (although I do also enjoy the blast 'em ups) with the added street crimes this should keep you going for a while and although many other people have mentioned it... the graphics are superb.

    Fantastic Game ***** Daniel posted on 31st August 2011
    This game is another rockstar classic, the graphics are good, the story line fantastic, looking forward to some add on stories to down load! bring on L.A NOIRE 2 please!!!

    Minecraft

    Proving that there is a place on this list for games that defy the hype and fanfare of the big-name publishers and blockbuster sequels, Minecraft has generated a cult following hooked on its blocky, 8-bit style fun.

    Minecraft is a truly independent game, created by Swede Markus "Notch" Persson. Essentially a sandbox-building game, the world of Minecraft is made up of 3D cubes representing everything from snow and trees to sheep and other creatures, almost all of which can be collected and used for constructions.

    There are two playing modes - Survival, where you must build constructs, acquire food and fight off creatures every night to survive, and Creative, where you have no concept of health or hunger and unlimited resources to just create. That's not to say these resources are easy to get, but the satisfaction you get from having excavated enough minerals to finally build your highway (or palace. Or spaceship) far outweighs any sense that this is actually hard work!

    Bizarrely repetitive and perilously addictive, Minecraft offers very unique gameplay, challenging players in ways that no other game does, or possibly would ever consider trying!

    This is the most addictive game I've ever played. Collecting, building, adventuring - so simple but so addictive. I've played plenty of RPGs and campaigns in other games, but somehow I enjoy just hiding in a tree waiting for the sun to come up just as much. You have to play this!

    Portal 2

    Portal 2 is the eagerly-anticipated follow-up to 2007's Portal. Continuing the original's unique blend of story, characters and music with innovative puzzles, Portal 2 has been winning nothing but praise and awards since its release in April.

    The single-player campaign picks up where its predecessor left off as you guide Chell through another series of puzzles that can only be solved by using the Portal Gun to create the way through. Any fears of "more of the same" are quickly brushed aside with the introduction of new characters and an engrossing plot. Tractor beams, bridges made of light and special gels that affect whatever they touch all add to the methods you use to solve the puzzles, and the bigger puzzle at the centre of it all.

    On top of this, a new and original second campaign was included for a co-operative multiplayer mode, with its own story, characters and gameplay that challenges everything you thought you knew about portals.

    Applauded by players, honoured by critics and testing you in ways that most mainstream games don't, Portal 2 is the game that dared to be different.

    From top to bottom, this game is amazing, from the physics engine to the textures, graphics, storyline, gameplay, the awesome humor, and soundtrack.

    Any fans of the very short first game will really enjoy this game. Anyone who didn't play the first should get this game anyway. A great mix of humour and puzzles, some real head scratchers but when it clicks you will realise it's not unfair. Oh and online co-op is just as much fun.

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    It's been 5 years since The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. That's a long time to wait, and a lot of time to build anticipation for a new game. Could The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim possibly live up to that kind of pressure?

    In a word - yes. It would appear that Bethesda have spent the bulk of the last 5 years creating an entire world for the characters of Skyrim to populate. There are no painted backdrops, snow acts like snow, animals mull around like they live there. This is as close to real-world as open-world gaming can get.

    Everything in the game seems to follow this real-world ethos. The choices you make and the skills your character has will grow and improve as the game goes on. Fighting gets a step-up too, as you wield a weapon in each hand, can cast all kinds of spells. And get the chance to fight dragons.

    Skyrim has re-set the bar on what a role-playing game can and should be - an engrossing and engaging world that has the magical ability to make hours and hours disappear!

    Too Much To Do! Special Kay posted on 1st January 2012
    Which is never a bad thing, the main questline will keep you busy for hours, and even wandering the lands without any specific goal will mean you get yourself into tons of adventures that will take hours out of your life where you won't regret a single second. It's better than Oblivion, it's Bethesda's best.

    Worth taking an arrow in the knee! Victoria posted on 30th December 2011
    This game is absolutely incredible with great graphics! It's the first Elder Scrolls game that I've played and at first I wasn't sure if it was worth buying, but then I saw some gameplay and literally couldn't believe it. You get enemies ranging from dark magicians to trolls to dragons. You also get many fantastic weapons which you would expect to find in such a huge RPG. Finally the story is breathtaking; you don't have to do the story if you don't want to because of all the other amazing things available, but if you get into it, you will not be able to stop! I must give this game 9.5/10, It's a MUST BUY!!

    Skyrim is one of the very few games I can think of that's worth whatever price you pay for it. In short, it's one of the finest and best developed games anyone can play. With astonishing graphics, easy to understand gameplay and a load of quests and side missions to do, Skyrim truly is a gaming experience everyone should try and buy without question.

    The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

    The Legend of Zelda celebrated its 25th Anniversary with Skyward Sword. Billed as Link's greatest adventure, Nintendo clearly planned to celebrate Zelda's birthday in style.

    Link once again embarked on a quest to find his beloved in a brand new adventure that was fresh and familiar at the same time. The world of Zelda has been richly realised with epic scenery, dank dungeons and all manner of puzzles and challenges to face. And, of course, enemies to fight.

    The Wii Motion Plus added a new dimension to this familiar tale, with gamers up and down the land swinging, slashing and rolling their controller as they wielded Link's weapons. For a certain generation this was the role-playing they'd always dreamed of. The chance to fly on the mighty Loftwing was very much the icing on the (25th Birthday) cake.

    Skyward Sword truly had something to offer gamers of all ages, a game that could be enjoyed by the die-hard fans and new players alike. After 25 years, Zelda showed that she is still the queen of RPGs.

    Just Amazing Thomas posted on 3rd December 2011
    This can be simply put as the best Zelda game out there. The controls are amazing, the graphics are amazing, the story is amazing and everything else about the game is amazing. If you own a Wii and don't pick this up then your missing out on one of the greatest games of all time.

    WOW Sahi posted on 14th December 2011
    This game is simply spectacular. The graphics are the best on wii, and the items in the game are extraordinary. The new motion controls are simply superb, giving 1:1 control over links sword. The array of weapons and side missions including a special hero mode and a boss mode for those who are looking for even more of a challenge. The story is simply amazing and each character feel vital for the game's epicness. This is no doubt the best zelda game in the series, and on the wii, and probably this year too!

    Breath-Taking Robert posted on 23rd December 2011 25 Years later and Nintendo are still bringing innovating ideas to a popular franchise. Skyward Sword is easily the best Zelda game available and provides over 30 hours of no-stop fun, adventure and twists.

    Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

    Nathan Drake was back for a new chapter in the much-loved adventure series, seen by many as the jewel in the crown of SONY's exclusive PlayStation-only titles. Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception took players on a cinematic rollercoaster ride through the Arabian deserts to discover the lost city of Ubar.

    Boasting stunning sequences that range from hanging out of a plane, to escaping a sinking ship, to fist-fights in a deserted desert village, it's clear that Uncharted 3 has much in common with a Hollywood action movie. The game features some of the best graphics seen on the PS3 (and that's saying something!), and plenty of challenges for you to think or fight your way out of, with a multiplayer mode that offers the chance to really explore. Ongoing downloadable content further opens up the world of the game and the treasures it hides.

    Universally praised by fans and critics alike for its combination of cinematic style and engrossing gameplay, Uncharted 3 is arguably more than just a video game, but a complete entertainment package.

    PS3 Showcase GAME Justin posted on 27th December 2011
    This is the PS3 at its best. The game looks absolutely stunning, if ever you need to show Xbox 360 owners what they are missing then this is the game to show them. The gameplay and story are so appealing that you will lose yourself in the game. You will find yourself compelled to complete the game but at the same time will not want it to come to an end!
