Does ANYONE Really Care About BAFTA 2014

BAFTA_615 

Last year on the 5th March the BAFTA game awards were showcased and there were a few surprises, but like most award ceremonies these days, it seems a bit to well rehearsed. Well on Wednesday 12 March 2014 the BAFTA games awards are back

But do gamers really  care? who won what last year?

Well i for one could not tell you any of the awards, however it really makes games worth making to those in the industry.

I remember watching previous footage of the awards and you can see a 3ft red carpet by a piece of railing near a back entrance of the building, hardly as glamorous as the TV and Film versions of the awards.

With all the money now in gaming and how mainstrem it is, it surprises me that people are not taking more notice of things

This year i don’t see any surprises in the nominations from Assassins Creed IV Black Flag to Plants vs. Zombies 2.

As i said who really cares apart from the Developers and Game Owners

Watch live video from Bafta on www.twitch.tv
