Deus Ex Human Revolution Soundtrack Review

When The Feed ran a recent article about video game soundtrack albums that were worthy of a Grammy Award nomination, one thing was made very clear in the comments.

Video Games At The Grammys -- Two Video Game Songs Get Nominated

If you follow Awards Season, then you know the Grammys are this weekend. Just about a year ago, The Feed featured my thoughts on why video game music deserves a dedicated Grammy Award. In the intervening year, the Grammys have gone through a major overhaul, reducing the total number of categories from 109 down to 78.

In truth, both original and compilation game soundtrack albums (and individual songs) have been eligible to win a Grammy award, just not in a dedicated category. Be that as it may, if we as game music fans had any say in the nominations or categories, things might be different.
