They both deserve the nod, TLOU and Bioshock: Infinite are amazing stories in any medium.

One thing I appreciate about TLOU is extreme violence in video game done right with sense of real life moral obligations. This the one aspect of TLOU that trumps all the mindless killing, shooting, looting, crime promoting, many developers come up with shallow excuses to do a violent game that kills people without a believable premise.
GTA is mindless promotion of doing crime with no sense of moral obligation to real people playing games.

No reps from Super Mario 3D World? For shame :P

It's nice to see the talented people behind games' amazing storylines get recognition. These people could've gone with books or movies but instead they choose our amazing medium. Come a long ways since the "Retro Years"

Mario? Really?

The best Mario story was the first in Donkey Kong July, 1981. The time when a video game actually had a plot/story.
And its to save the princess.
That same old story is even milked up to this day.

Really wish Niel was part of the new Uncharted, but he isn't, and if U3 is anything to go by then the new Uncharted is going to fall short of the first two aswell in terms of story, hope i'm wrong but i highly doubt it

Well Amy wrote Uncharted 2, and it was amazing! Uncharted 3 had many problems story wise, they were not even sure Claudia Black or Emily Rose would be there for their roles (Elena and Chloe) so the story was kind of strung together. Emily Rose even almost had them kill off Elena. So their were a lot of outside problems. Not that I disagree, UC3 was a huge let down for me, but that was a tech problem. The aiming system was completely and totally unacceptable on release, ruined my whole experience.

Niel also helped write 2, and Amy also wrote 3, which was "bleh" imo. though she did write 1 so it's really any ones guess as to if it's going to be better or not, i hope it is but the shortcoming that was U3 has me worried

I hope Darby Mcdevitt wins, he's a fantastic writer.

And it's no coincidence that Naughty Dog's writer would then be a loser, of course.

Some people's motives are so transparent...
