The British Academy of Film and Television has announced that PlayStation 3-exclusive action-adventure title The Last of Us has notched up 10 BAFTA nominations.
The Naughty Dog post-apocalyptic outing leads a pack of the biggest games from last year, including Grand Theft Auto V (nine nominations), Tearaway (eight nominations), while the likes of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, BioShock: Infinite, Super Mario 3D World, The Stanley Parable and Papers, Please received four nominations each.
The Last of Us wasn’t the only PlayStation exclusive that picked up a nomination. Beyond: Two Souls and Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch were also recognized, while third-party heavies such as Tomb Raider and Battlefield 4 got nods, too.
