30 Days of Video Games – Day 8 – Favorite Soundtrack

I would like to start this post out by apologizing for missing one of my previous posts. This past week/weekend has been incredibly exhausting for me. Tonight, sadly, the the first night I got home before 11 PM. Anyway so lets get on with what this post was meant for! My favorite sound track. Which, I would have to say is Journey on the Playstation 3.

I cannot describe how amazing this soundtrack is. It fits perfectly with the game and it is even one that I listen to when I am not playing it. The composer for the soundtrack was Austin Wintory and he does an incredible job on it. It has beautiful sweeping melodies that can get stuck in your head followed by sad melancholy songs that are used to immerse the players during the darker parts of the games narrative. This soundtrack is so good that it is the first video game soundtrack to be nominated for a grammy. Other games have gotten songs nominated before but never the full soundtrack. Mr. Wintory was up against some of the best known composers in the movie industry. John Williams, Trent Reznor were among 2 of the big contenders. Sadly he did not win the grammy but it still was amazing he got nominated. If you have not played the game or listened to it’s sound track. Give them a try, I don’t think you will be disappointed!

What is your favorite soundtrack?
