Nice!
I looked at a list of previous winners and nominees, and I'm a little confused by their selection process. The last Assassins Creed game to win was Liberation, which actually beat out ACIII (also a nominee). Just thought that was kind of weird.

I am not totally familiar with WGA process, however I saw that enrollment of writers in WGA is a requirement for nomination. May be it has something to do with that?

Think the nomination is for those who wrote the script, not the code :)

Wasn't Unity up for a nomination last time?

Yup, seems it was:

So as much as I enjoyed Syndicate, I don't put a lot of stock in the nominees. Unity's story was an incomprehensible mess, even for long-time fans, and I dare any writer to claim it deserved an award.

The main campaign writing was good, but I liked Jack the Ripper better, wonder if they consider the game as a whole or just the main campaign
