It's time to give credit to the all-important video game composer.

The International Film Music Critics Association (IFMCA) has announced the nominees for composers that demonstrated "excellence in musical scoring" in 2013. This ceremony does include a gaming category, which is Best Original Score for a Video Game or Interactive Media. Five titles were selected:

  • Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag by Ubisoft, music by Brian Tyler
  • Beyond: Two Souls by Quantic Dream, music by Lorne Balfe
  • Company of Heroes 2 by Relic Entertainment, music by Cris Velasco
  • Puppeteer by SCE Japan Studio, music by Patrick Doyle
  • Remember Me by Dontnod, music by Olivier Deriviere

ACIV composer Brian Tyler is among four others nominated for the prestigious Composer of the Year Award. Additionally, he received a nomination for Best Original Score for an Action/Adventure/Thriller Film ("Iron Man 3"). Tyler was also responsible for the soundtrack for Army of 2: The Devil's Cartel. Previous winners for the gaming Best Score award include Austin Wintory (Journey), Joe Hisaishi (Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch), and Oscar Araujo (Castlevania: Lords of Shadow).

The winners will be announced on February 20. Don't forget that in our end-of-year awards, we gave Black Flag the Best Music award, 'cuz it really deserved it.
