The Last of Us wins 2014 Writer’s Guild Award for Videogame Writing


Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us won the 2014 Writer’s Guild Award for Outstanding Achievement in Videogame Writing. The tale of Joel and Ellie was lauded all year as one of the best games, so this is unsurprising.

The Last of Us was up against some pretty stiff competition: Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Batman: Arkham Origins, God of War: Ascension, and Lost Planet 3. Personally, I’m shocked that BioShock Infinite wasn’t nominated.

It’s great to see video games up for major writer’s awards, but I think things will get much more interesting once indie games start getting nominated, or get their own category. Papers, Please and The Stanley Parable would have been hard pressed in a fight against each other for best writing.
