Writer’s Guild Video Game Writing Award
So, I don’t know what the Writer’s Guild is smoking, but the above image is one of the only two respectable nominees out of the six they’ve given. The other respectable nominee is Fallout: New Vegas, and I ‘m not even sure the story from that is that great. The other four? Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, God of War III, The Force Unleashed II, and Singularity. Singularity and Prince of Persia are pretty laughable. God of War III is a game in a franchise that has never been very story heavy, and in The Force Unleashed II the story was the weakest part.
