Minecraft grabs a nominations for PC game of the year while indie favourite Bastion picked up a surprising five nominations, meanwhile Deus Ex: Human Revolution misses out on a nomination for Game of the Year and, most bizarrely of all, Battlefield 3 isn‚??t nominated for Best Graphics.

The Spike VGA awards will take place on the 10th of December, and will see the unveiling of a new Bioware game (http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/11/07/first-image-of-new-bioware-game-appears/) (pictured above). Check inside for a breakdown of the relevant nominations:
