witcherwriting.jpgThe Writer’s Guild of America have announced the nominees for its first ever video game writing awards, and for the most part their choices don’t completely suck. As a matter of fact, two of my favorite games of last year are up for the award – The PC action RPG The Witcher and alternative timeline action RTS World in Conflict. The complete list:

– Crash of the Titans,” written by Christopher Mitchell for Sierra Entertainment
– “Dead Head Fred,” written by Dave Ellis and Adam Cogan for D3 Publisher
– “The Simpsons Game,” with lead writer Matt Selman, written by Tim Long and Matt Warburton, dialogue by Jeff Poliquin for Electronic Arts
– “The Witcher,” with lead story designer Artur Ganszyniec, dialogue by Sebastian Stepien, additional dialogue by Marcin Blacha and writers Sande Chen and Anne Toole for Atari
– “World in Conflict,” story design by Christofer Emgard, story consultant Larry Bond and script consultant Ed Zuckerman for Sierra Entertainment.

Crash of the Titans? Really? I suppose that just goes to show that your game can have a great story and still be overwhelmingly mediocre.
