The Last of Us Part 2 and Ghost of Tsushima lead nominations for 2021 BAFTA Games Awards

This year's nominations for the 2021 BAFTA Gaming Awards have been announced, celebrating some of our favourite games and gaming moments over the past twelve months, and it's certainly been a strong year with many excellent games up for prizes.

Arguably, PlayStation exclusives have been the big winner this past year, with a whopping thirteen nominations for The Last of Us Part II, eleven for Ghost of Tsushima and seven for Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales but there's also plenty of nods for games that appear elsewhere too, including nine for Hades, six for Animal Crossing: New Horizons and five for Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout
