BAFTA Games Awards 2022 – Here’s All The Nominees

BAFTA Games Awards, the prestigious annual ceremony from the UK is back for 2022, and this year’s nominees have been announced.

2021 was a wonderful year for video games. We saw a wide variety of instant classics from It Takes Two, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Deathloop and more. We’ve even seen charming, indie darlings take us by surprise, such as the wonderful Unpacking.

So, to celebrate a fantastic year of our beloved video games, the annual BAFTA Games Awards will honour and celebrate our much-loved pastime.


Here are all the BAFTA Games Awards nominees for 2022:
