Writers Guild The Writer's Guild of America West, that union of entertainment writers, has revealed its nominees for outstanding achievement in videogame writing in 2010.

The Guild's goal is to "promote storytelling excellence in videogames, improve the status of gaming writers, and encourage uniform standards within the gaming industry." Laudable goals. Sadly, the only wirters eligible for the title are those who "have applied to become members of the WGA’s Videogame Writers Caucus at the time scripts were submitted. Work that was not produced under WGA jurisdiction was also eligible for submission." That means, not everyone. But still, the nominees are under the "Read More" tag.
