Writers Guild of America Announces Video Game Nominees for 2009 WGA Awards

Posted by | January 13, 2009

As a writer myself, I’m always curious about the plot, storylines, and characters in the video games I play. To me, an enthralling world populated by interesting characters is the most important part of a good game. Silent Hill, Psychonauts, Fallout, these are games you can simply inhabit, soaking up the atmosphere and becoming a thread in the virtual tapestries woven out before you. That’s the power of good writing.

As such, it pleases me to discover the Writers Guild of America has announced the nominees for their 2009 Writers Guild Awards under the Video Game category. And the nominees are…

Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3, by Electronic Arts
Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble!, by Mousechief (Who? Here’s a video)
Fallout 3, by Bethesda Softworks
Tomb Raider: Underworld, by Eidos
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, from LucasArts

The Writers Guild Awards will unveil the winner at their show on February 7th. For more information about the awards and the Writers Guild of America, check out their homepage.
