Favorite Game Music
The music of a game enhances its moods, themes and tone and collaborates with the rest of its artistry. It scores your own personal experience and responds, as well as it can, to you as a player.
I want you to think about all these criteria, which are the responsibility of all game composers to fulfill as they start on each new project, as you consider the game scores you would like to nominate for this category. That means not only judging the quality of the music itself, but how well it suited the game and how effectively it scored your experience. These are the qualities of the most beautiful game music, and what makes it distinct from other music and even other scores. Without further ado, send us that good stuff.
You will have until 5th January to nominate your games – this is our cut-off ahead of polling going live.
Remember: you can nominate up to three games, so be creative with your choices!
Be sure to check the Q&A section below if you have questions, otherwise feel free to reach out to one of us! We hope you enjoy this event and we’re excited to see what sorts of discussion each category inspires!
Q: End of Year? What's that?
A: I’m glad you asked! Just head over to our pinned topic if you need a catch up! You can also find details on the process for the event here.
Q: How do I nominate a game?
A: To nominate a game, head on over to our google form and write down your submissions in the appropriate field. You may nominate up to three games and you will be able to edit this submission at any time by returning to the google form (before the nomination date closes).
As the nominations will be done externally, this thread will instead be the place to discuss what your favorites were and to make the case for them if you feel strongly. We welcome thoughtful posts about how you made your decision, as long as we keep it positive and respectful.
Q: When does the nomination process end?
A: The period of time to make your nominations will end January 5th, 2019.
Q: What games can I nominate?
