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?).

Why the hell is MW2 on that list? I've only played that and AC2 and that was hundreds of times better. I can't see anything other than UC2 or AC2 winning this.

Wet? lol Haven't played much of it myself but I've reason to believe the writing was hardly its strongest point, wasn't its most highlighted fail either, still. 
 
Uncharted 2 will probably take the award, and with good reason.

Incidently, "Duppy Demetrius"  is a great name!

Was the story in Wolverine any good?

I have'nt played uncharted two but judging from the reviews I'd say it stands a good chance.
