Maybe they only play AAA XBOX 360 titles, and not like, games actually known for their writing.

So, despite having multiple, sensible routes and storylines that will never be the same on every different playthrough, The Walking Dead was not part of this?

Seems... fishy.

But how could they fit a CoD game, and multiple versions of Assassin's Creed on there?

Agree with the Megatroll angle. "Yeah, thought your nomination was for Spec Ops: The Line, didn't you Bruce!? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!".

I can think of a couple games that deserve this;
  • The Walking Dead (as mentioned)
  • Journey

No list in the world could contain this.

Seriously though, despite my love for Halo (and its story), this list is... I don't... What... They really need to look at non-AAA titles. There are a couple nominations I could see being justified, but come on now.

Edit: tekmosis pointed out that you do need to be a member of the guild to qualify for a nomination, which explains A LOT.

Well not too many games last year stuck out to me story wise, just a bit of a bland year :/
Though when I see 007 picked out it's just, what?
I think something more must be going on here because it just doesn't seem right.

These are the games that paid for the WGA membership. It's not reflective of good or bad writing; it's reflective of what companies are paying for a nomination.

NEEDS. MORE. EDGGGYYYYYY.

Not enough edge. Massive fail of a list right there. There's not even one Shakespearean story on that list!

...stupid crapcom wasted all their money purchasing reviews and releasing all their payed dlc for free or as preorder bonuses and now can't afford to nominate their games on lists.

I can understand not having Persona 4 Golden on there because it's a remake, but seriously? No Spec Ops: The Line? I'm not mentioning The Walking Dead because I still have yet to play it even though I downloaded the first chapter for free when Xbox Live had that sale.

So what Ben Davis says is true and you essentially have to pay to qualify?

...NOW THATS WHAT I CALL EDGY. AND INTEGRITY!

Most of those games I agree, but I am going to have to try Uncharted: Golden Abyss before I decide it's worthy to be placed up there. I haven't bought many PS Vita games though.
