The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences just loves Uncharted . Well, who doesn't?
The Academy released the full list of nominees for the Interactive Achievement Awards, and Naughty Dog's masterful Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception grabbed 12 nominations across 11 categories, including the illustrious Game of the Year.
Other top titles like Batman: Arkham City , The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim , Portal 2 , and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword were also well recognized. If you're wondering, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves snagged 15 nominations in 2010. We love to see Portal 2 getting a lot of love with 10 nominations, by the way, and L.A. Noire got 9.
…you know, I just realized that the PSX Extreme Game of the Year Awards so often fall in line with the AIAS, year in and year out. We're one of very few sources to pay appropriate homage to games like L.A. Noire , for example. Hmm…what's that say about us? Maybe we need to be more original, or something? 😉
Anyway, the 15th annual Interactive Achievement Awards will take place on Thursday, February 9 at the D.I.C.E. Summit in Las Vegas. Comedian Jay Mohr will once again host. Dude's funny.
