The International Film Music Critics Association announced the nominees for its annual awards. One of the categories this year is Best Original Score for a Video Game or Interactive Media. Five games released in 2011 are contending for the award:
I'm a bit surprised that Battlefield 3 wasn't on the list, as I've often found myself humming the electronic, bass-thumping theme song. Crysis 2's soundtrack, created with help from Hans Zimmer, deserves some praise too. It's possible that EA just didn't submit these games' soundtracks for consideration, though.
