Considering writing for games and writing for film is essentially the same, I'd recommend picking up a screenwriting book instead (Screenwriter's Bible is VERY recommended).
Its was done with passion, you realize that on the first pages.
Its really clear on the obstacles, pleasures and steps they have when creating a game.
It does push you to do some mind exercises so you also expand your creativity and understand the entertainment media.
I really do recommend this book to everyone willing to understand how to create a game.
Not by learning programming code, but the steps needed for it!
I believe it helps greatly to have some storytelling experience, preferably screenwriting, to make the most use of this book and to understand it better. Otherwise, you might feel a bit confused and left out if you have never written narrative storytelling before.
A great book for noobs and pros alike!
