Journey’s soundtrack is up for a Grammy

journey-game-screenshot-1

For the first time ever a full soundtrack (not just a lone track) from a video game has been nominated for a Grammy Award.

The PS3 downloadable game Journey’s soundtrack is going up against soundtracks of The Adventures of Tintin – The Secret of the Unicorn, The Artist, The Dark Knight Rises, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and Hugo for Best Soundtrack for Visual Media. That’s some pretty lofty company for a 15 dollar indie game.

I’ve beaten Journey, and while I was not as in love with the game as others, I cannot deny that the soundtrack was phenomenal. Congrats to Austin Wintory, the composter, on the nomination.

I hope this is a step towards games finally being recognized by the mainstream media as something that can transcend just the “game” part. What do you think?
