BAFTA Games Predictions

Odds are Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture will walk away victorious

Hear me moan,

The nominations for the BAFTA Games Awards 2016 have been announced so I thought I’d take a stab at them and see which ones bleed – we won’t know until April 7th, which is when the results will be announced, but odds are Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture will walk away victorious considering it has been nominated 10 fucking times.

What are your predictions? Post a comment. I lament once a week but you can follow me on Twitter @LeeLaments where I moan every day. Also listen to the Out of the Xfire Podcast to witness me make harsh judgements about PlayStation.
