Why BAFTA included COD4 in 2008 Awards

Gamezine: BAFTA explains the inclusion of the 2007 title, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, in the 2008 Video Game BAFTA Awards, as well as the reasoning behind the limited nominations for Metal Gear Solid 4.

If you have a gander at the released nominations for the 2008 BAFTA Video Game Awards, you might find it odd that the game with the most nominations is Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare - a 2007 game. This meant that 2008's Call of Duty: World at War was missing from the list.

"So neither developers, nor industry experts thought the game was worthy for Game of the Year consideration. Then again, the game won our 2008 Game of the Year award, that's surely praise enough. You can find the full list of BAFTA nominations after this link. "
- about MGS4 no nomination

what "industry experts"? the same ppl who post "teh ps3 is dead" articles
"the developers"? who cliffy-b? his opinion shouldnt count.

Simple MGS4 is not on the 360. so it doesnt deserve the Award according to these guys.

Seriously, did these guys forget that COD4 is a 2007 game? wow. just wow... this is why I dont believe in gaming journalism and all of their bullsh1t.

But its ok, 10 years from now, we are going to look into the past and look at crap like this and facepalm as if we are the dumbest species in the face of the Universe.

Yeah, the whole thing smacks of industry bigwigs who don't have any idea what they're talking about trying to get down with the kids.

Okay then I take it you didn't read the article, and like a lot of other people round here, you reacted before thinking!

i read the article. still its stupid.

"Call of Duty Modern Warfare missed the deadline for the 2007 Awards and so Activision elected to put that game forward for this year's Awards and chose not to enter World at War this time. We can only judge those games which are entered for BAFTA consideration."

the awards are suppose to be dedicated towards 2008 awards, not 2007.

Game of the Year is voted by the public.

I vote Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

El_Colombiano3503d ago

Game of the Year is an underexaggeration.

NS3503d ago

the movie folks are jealous of MGS4 because its a game that is better than most movies in 2008.
