Way to go Alien Isolation. I've yet to play it but will get around to it sooner or later. Also nice to see Far Cry with a lot of nominations again one of the better games out last year.

Good to see some recognition for this overlooked game, take note the so called DICE awards - this is how you're supposed to do it.

Tough game but very good. Incredibly tense as your nerves are on a constant hair trigger and follows the Alien movie set design to a tee which is a treat to behold. Be patient though as its' long and exhausting but in a good way.
