The Writers Guild Awards has been giving games writing awards for a number of years now. I'm always confused. Past winners include Dead Head Fred, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Uncharted 2, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Uncharted 3, and Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation. Only two of those sort of make sense to me.
This year's nominees, the winner of which will be announced February 1, are:
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
Perhaps these lists end up odd because of prerequisites for WGA nomination. Potentially nominated writers have to apply to the "WGA Videogame Writers Caucus at the time scripts were submitted," for example.
Anyways, it's quite clear only one game in this bizarre list of nominees actually deserves to be praised for its writing.
Lost Planet 3.
This probably isn't what you'll look like doing the Assassin's Creed parkour course
