The Witcher Up for Writers Guild Award

the_witcher_fight_big.jpg

The Writers Guild of America has announced its nominees for the first Videogame Writing Award. It comes as no surprise to me that CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher has been nominated to receive the award for “outstanding achievement in video game writing.”

Developed by the WGA and spearheaded by the Guild’s New Media Caucus to encourage storytelling excellence in videogames, improve the status of writers, and foster uniform standards within the gaming industry, the WGA’s inaugural Videogame Writing Award spotlights quality work by videogame writers, raising their profiles, and validating their contributions to this rapidly maturing medium.

The Witcher has some formidable competition. The other nominees are; Sierra’s Crash of the Titans, D3′s Dead Head Fred, EA’s The Simpsons Game and Sierra’s World in Conflict.

No Portal made me scream until 1UP filled in that hole. http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3165442

I’m still screaming, though. Portal would’ve ripped these games a new one.

OK portal was a good game, but it didn’t exactly have the greatest story. It had great dialogue, but that’s it. There really wasn’t much of a story. The story was “go thru experiments, escape crazy robot, destroy crazy robot”.
