From that list, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor or The Wolf Among Us.

The nemesis thing where your enemies got promoted was new and interesting and the gameplay was a lot of fun, even if the main characters weren't.

The rest are either same crud that gets published annually, crud that should have been the same stuff that gets published annually but had half the features from the previous version removed, mediocre for the amount that got spent on it, or had nonsensical plot lines.

The Ultimate Team up for nomination was the separate iOS/Android game, not the game mode
