Naughty Dog’s critically-acclaimed The Last of Us has scooped the Outstanding Achievement in Writing for Video Games gong from the Writer’s Guild of America (via VG247).

The PlayStation 3-exclusive adventure’s story was penned by Neil Druckmann, who took home the award during a ceremony on February 1.

The Last of Us wasn’t without its competition, and managed to beat off the likes of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Batman: Arkham Origins.

Naughty Dog will release the game’s first and only slice of single-player content, Left Behind, on February 14.
