'Dead Head Fred' Wins WGA Award


Posted February 15, 2008 - By Mike D'Alonzo

You know, writers really get our goat lately. First they go on strike for four months and cost us $2 billion, and then they vote Dead Head Fred the most well-written game of the year.

Has anyone played Dead Head Fred? The most we can muster in our mind when we think about it is that terrible movie that wasted the talents of The Young Ones' incredibly funny Rik Mayall (not a midget...sorry.) which is actually called Drop Dead Fred, but who cares?

Also, did any writers play BioShock this year? Have you ever played a game like that before, where the writing is so good that the plot literally made you gasp? Feh. What do we need writers for anyway? The truth of the matter is that there was a baroque set of rules that governed the nomination process, which eliminated a lot of material that might have triumphed over Fred.
