Well done Chris Avellone and Brian Fargo for getting nominated. I'm not too bothered about who wins, as long as Magna Cum Laude loses.

Leisure Suit Larry for writing? This is like a sign of the apocalypse isn't it?What's next, Penthouse Forum for the Pulitzer Prize. Granted I haven't played this one, but I remember some of the earlier ones. Dude, the titty jokes are so tired, and the cheezy double entendre has all the subtlty of a sledgehammer. Real sophisticated shit.
