The Last of Us received the most nominations, with 10, across categories including Artistic Achievement, Best Game, Game Design, and Story. Hot on its heels is GTA 5 with nominations in nine categories, including Best Game, Multiplayer, and Story.

Media Molecule’s Vita platformer Tearaway scored eight nominations, and indie hit Papers, Please! saw four nods. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, Bioshock Infinite, Super Mario 3D World, and The Stanley Parable are all also members of the four nominations club.

The awards ceremony will take place on March 12 at the Tobacco Dock in London, and will once again be fronted by glamorous celebrity and The Apprentice: You’re Fired! host Dara O Briain.

For the record, my money is definitely on The Last of Us.
