Spike TV announced the list of nominees in a number of categories for this year’s VGAs. Out of the many games nominated across a broad range of fields, Portal 2 has shot ahead with the most nominations followed closely by Batman: Arkham City and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.

It was announced that Portal 2 has landed more than 12 nominations across a wide range categories for this year’s Spike TV Video Game Awards. Following closely behind Portal 2 is Rocksteady and Warner Bros Interactive’s Batman: Arkham City with a respectable 10 nominations and following directly behind that is Naughty Dog’s highly praised cinematic adventure game, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, with 9 nominations.
