"In the world of entertainment, music is an integral part of the total experience. Music is there to complement the visual experience, mainly since it would be boring to only hear dialogue, sound effects, and silence. Also, music helps set the mood.

Completely agree. The VGAs are a joke in so many ways anyway...

Rhythm games in general are fun to play with others but they try too hard to reach a broad audience that there are songs from too many genres.

Music games blow, and they are f-ing over real soundtracks.

similar to VG LIVE. Shatter did have a flowing soundtrack and don't forget some soundtracks can straight up ruin a game.

I agree, I would love to see a full orchestral performance next year, that would be EPIC! I know a few games with TERRIBLE soundtracks lol.

Best Soundtrack is a joke. Imo the awards should go to people actually contributing to the industry. That is, putting out original work for us. Instead we're advertising Universal for allowing a game to use their artists.

Best Score is by far the better honor.
