Thanks, Videogamer.

    Brink actually has 2 stories, one where the Security are successful, one where the Resistance are successful. You have to play the chapters in order and win the round as a single factyion o actually get it.

    It’s not a bad story, but it isn’t told particularly well because of the way the game works.

    Of all of those, Enslaved is probably the only one on the list deserving of any sort of writing accolade.

    Are there special requirements to get on this list? Because Portal 2 should win every reward. Ever.

    Way to ruin your crediability Writers Guild. I can see ENslaved if I squint my eyes but Brink?! So who do you have to sleep with to get a writing award.

    Never, ever heard of The Curfew or its author.

    I agree, Brink’s story doesn’t really fit in the whole “writer’s guild award” category.
    I would see Vanquish as a much better candidate, too bad it’s writers are Japanese.

    @6 Vanquish? Really?

    I mean, I get that it’s intentionally overblown and over-the-top, and that’s half its charm, but it’s story isn’t exactly anything to write home about.

    @8 At least it’s better than Brink’s.

    Don’t get me wrong, Brink’s story has good premises, but its exposition falls flat compared to Vanquish’s.

    Vanquish actually had one of the better scifi scenarios and stories in video game history. at least thats my opinion.
