The shortlist has been revealed for The GAME Award of this year’s video games BAFTAs.
This is the only category in the GAME British Academy Video Games Awards that is voted for by the public rather than a selected panel and will recognise the consumers’ choice for the best title of 2010.

The full list of nominations is as follows:
Call of Duty: Black Ops (Activision)
Dance Central (Microsoft)
FIFA 11 (EA)
