A-list game composer of award-winning soundtracks for Mass Effect, Jet Set Radio Future, and Headhunters talks about scoring Sega's latest hyperviolent shooter.
GameSpot: Where did you get your start, and how many game soundtracks have you contributed to?
Richard Jacques: I began my career in the games industry as an in-house composer with Sega Europe in London back in the early '90s. This was shortly after I had just completed my music degree at university, and as I had been a gamer for many years, it was indeed a great opportunity. I don't know the exact number of games I have worked on (I have been too busy to count!), but at the last tally it was between 70 and 80 projects.
