Writers Guild Announces Nominees For Video Game Writing

We should always care about awards that recognize achievement in writing.

The Writers Guild of America has announced the nominations for Outstanding Achievement in Video Game Writing, and the list includes some high-profile titles.

In order to be eligible for the award, the game in question had to be released between December 1, 2013 and November 30, 2014, and the writers need to be members of the WGA Video Game Writers Caucus, or at least have applied to become a member. And here are the nominees:

Alien: Isolation -- (Writers: Dan Abnett, Dion Lay, Will Porter; SEGA)

Assassin's Creed Unity -- (Alexandre Amancio, Sylvain Bernard, Travis Stout; Scriptwriting Alexandre Amancio, Travis Stout, Russell Lees, Darby McDevitt, Ceri Young; Additional Scriptwriting Jeffrey Yohalem; Ubisoft)

Assassin's Creed: Freedom Cry -- (Lead Scriptwriter Jill Murray; Scriptwriter Melissa MacCoubrey; Story by Jill Murray, Hugo Giard,Wesley Pincombe; Ubisoft)

The Last of Us: Left Behind -- (Written by Neil Druckmann; Sony Computer Entertainment)

The winners will be named on Saturday, February 14. Which group of writers do you think deserves to win? Assassin's Creed has always boasted an underrated and under-appreciated script but it's hard to vote against anything involving The Last Of Us...

So many games came out in 2014. That's such a small list of nominees.

They should've included DESTINY (hue, hue, hue!)
