007 Legends Nominated for the Writers Guild of America's Outstanding Achievement in Video Games Writing Award

The Writer's Guild of America has announced its nominees for outstanding achievement in video game writing for 2012. It came as a huge surprise since the critically shunned 007 Legends made the short list, for whatever reason. 

Several games, such as Telltale Games: The Walking Dead, has been left off the list, which is causing a lot of anger amongst fans. But, an explanation for the nominees is that The Writers Guild of America is reserved for those that nominate themselves within certain periods, or who are already members of the committee.

The full list of nominations is as follows:

  • 007 Legends - Written By Bruce Feirstein; Activision
  • Assassin's Creed 3 - Story By Alex Hutchinson, Corey May, Matt Turner; Multiplayer Story By Richard Farrese, Jeffrey Yohalem; Lead Scriptwriter Corey May; Scriptwriter Nicholas Grimwood, Russell Lees, Matt Turner, Danny Wallace, Ceri Young; Ubisoft
  • Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation - Scriptwriting by Richard Farrese, Jill Murray; Ubisoft
  • Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two - Writing Consultant Marv Wolfman; Disney Interactive Studios
  • Halo 4 - Narrative Design Christopher Schlerf; Microsoft Studios
  • Uncharted: Golden Abyss - Written By John Garvin; Sony Computer Entertainment America
