Writer's Guild of America Announces Nominees for Best Written Game of 2011

The Writer's Guild of America has announced their 2011 nominations for best written game of the year. Yes, the WGA does actually have a best game script category. The winner will be announced at Writer Guild Awards on February 19th.

I know what you're thinking: "Why do I care about the nominees?" Just tell me when they announce the winner. Well, this year's got some pretty interesting nominees: They run the gamut from popular Game of the Year contenders to games that a lot of people really didn't like. There's even a fighting game on the list!

Without further adieu, here are the best written games  of 2011...

Batman: Arkham City

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

Assassin's Creed: Revelations

Brink

Mortal Kombat

SUPRISE!

I bet you didn't that one coming. All of these games focused on storytelling and featured quite a bit of spoken dialogue. Though Brink and Mortal Kombat are both multiplayer-centric games, they both made sure to frame that gameplay in well-constructed story. Brink may not have been the prettiest package, but that didn't mean it didn't have nice wrapping...

Do you think there's a well written game that deserves to be on this list? Let us know!
