Clearly not content with the mass of awards that it’s already won, Journey has made history by becoming the first ever video game to be nominated for a Grammy award. The title’s scorching score – composed by Austin Wintory – is up for contention in the ‘Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media’ category. It’ll face off against heavy hitters such as The Dark Knight Rises and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Posting on Twitter, the musician struggled to summarise his pride: "Well, I don't really have words right now," he said. "I just got a Grammy nomination for Journey."
The 55th Grammy awards ceremony will take place on 10th February. Should the title triumph, we hope that its success will put an end to the dreadfully dreary 'are games art' discussions, which insist on disrupting this industry on a regular basis.
