The latest Playstation exclusive from renowned developer Naughty Dog was extremely controversial in some circles, with long-time fans accusing the makers of moving away from what made the original game successful.

Still, The Last of Us Part II proved to be a hit with game critics, as you can see from the insane number of BAFTA Game Awards nominations. It scored 3 more than Ghost of Tsushima, who is in the running for 10 BAFTA Games categories (see why in our review here).

The other major contenders are Half-Life: Alyx from Valve and, of course, Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Naughty Dog’s latest game is up in the running for the BAFTA Best Game, Performer in a Leading Role (Ashley Johnson as Ellie), Performer in a Supporting Role (Jeffrey Pierce as Tommy), Artistic Achievement, Animation and the list goes on.

Still, expect to see the hottest debates in 2 categories – BAFTA Game Awards Best Game and EE Game of the Year, the category in which the public votes.
