The Grammys finally feature video game soundtracks — but it’s not the ones you’re expecting

THE Grammys have included a new category to honor video game soundtracks, but the nominees aren’t what you’d expect.

There are many games that have been acclaimed for their music, and many people listen to their soundtracks instead of the usual pop star albums.

From the quirky like the soundtrack of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to the heavy metal soundtrack that accompanied Doom in 2016.

Indie games in particular are known for their music, with Undertale, Cuphead, and Celeste being particularly popular with fans.

However, the games selected for this category were considered odd by gamers.

A number of mainline games and series were chosen in place of these popular favourites, despite lackluster music.

The five nominated soundtracks are:

  • Aliens: Fireteam Elite
  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarok
  • Call of Duty: Vanguard
  • Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy
  • old world

Most of these games weren’t released this year and weren’t acclaimed for their soundtracks when they were.

This year alone has produced a number of excellent soundtracks such as Bayonetta 3, Stray and Tunic.

Gaming’s version of The Oscars, known as The Game Awards, featured five very different games in their list for Best Soundtrack.

This list is as follows:

  • A Plague Tale: Requiem
  • elden ring
  • God of War Ragnarok
  • Metal: Hellsinger
  • Xenoblade Chronicles 3

Metal: Hellsinger is an indie rhythm shooter that was particularly praised for its metal soundtrack.

Despite these odd decisions, it’s still a step forward for gaming music, as the last time a game was honored at the Grammys was Journey in 2013.
