BAFTA’s announced the full list of nominations for this year’s game awards, with Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood leading the charge with seven.

Black Ops and Red Dead Redemption both missed out on being nominated for Best Game, with Brotherhood, FIFA 11, Heavy Rain, Limbo, Mass Effect 2 and Super Mario Galaxy 2 all fighting for the award.

Rockstar decided to opt out of the event back in December.

Black Ops and Heavy Rain follow Brotherhood in the nominations count with six nods. Mass Effect 2 is up for five awards with Limbo nominated for four.

Nominations for the new Social Network Game category include FIFA Superstars, Bejeweled Blitz, Farmerama, My Empire, Zumba Blitz and Zoo Mumba.

The event will also be streamed on IGN on March 16 as well as the official BAFTA and gaming BAFTA websites.
