Shamefully, I have not played any of this year's nominees. I hope the writing in the Wolverine game was better than the awful film it was based on. Batman: Arkham Asylum should probably have got a mention: the story was a bit video-gamey but the dialogue was very snappy (maybe they didnt put themselves forward?).
