Horizon Zero Dawn's score, composed by Joris de Man and The Flight, has been named the "Best Original Score" at the 12th annual Jerry Goldsmith Awards.
Oh yeah ! The soundtrack of Horizon Zero Dawn is beautiful crafted.
I bought it too. It's really amazing.
Horizon is pretty good, and the music is balanced, with both panpipe hint and even a didgeridoo squirrelled away in there for good measure.
HOWEVER, as good as it is in my opinion the most stunning soundtrack for any game this generation goes to Gareth Coker and Ori and The Blind Forest.
That is the only score I've heard that genuinely bring you to tears, and the orchestration is genuinely sublime. It deserved the golden joystick for it back in 2015/2016
.....ok.....so horizon beat neir automata and persona 5.
I agree. As good as HZD is Nier Automata and Persona 5 had much better OSTs imo its not even close. But to each their own i guess.
well a panel of people said you're wrong. i say you're wrong, but that's the beautiful thing about opinions.
@sampson woah dude why so defensive? I never said anyone was wrong. I did say everyone has their own opinion...
What crawled up ur butt?
Personally, i agree. I thought nier ost was better
who won? end of story.
Yes100% agree with you. Persona 5 and nier automata are the two games with the best musical scores this generation (along with sunset overdrive) horizon's soundtrack is awesome but it doesnt stand out like in persona or nier
yet it has the award :)
I thought Persona 5 was on another level with its soundtrack. Probably the best I've ever heard.
And no, sampson3121, the fact that it didn't win the award doesn't change that.
Cool, but i dont care. They're all fantastic games i've had the privellege of playing
I disagree aloys theme itself is better then anything in neir automata or persona and I wouldn't even include sunset overdrive in the list that game was filled with generic punk rock tunes that weren't anything memorable
I would give the nod to persona 5 too but that was a 2016 game.
Good one, i forgot it officially released last year
It launched in Japan in 2016 and the west in 2017.
Well Aloys theme is pretty great :3
Homecoming and City on the Mesa are also great.
Probably the only award it will win
Well, no, because it's already won awards..
It already won awards at the 2015 and 2016 Game Critics Awards
The same consolation award? It was at E3 twice and has never won best of show #smh.
It's going to win a few GOTY awards, as well.
Will wait and see
and you're still at 0 awards.
Don't be dumb kid
Nah HZD will get many more awards. From its concept to the graphics it has a lot going for it
I'm just as excited as I was yesterday. (Knock On Wood)
Lol yeah no it will win some goty awards also
Jealousy isn't good for your health.
My kid brother was finishing HZD 3days ago. Hes enjoying Mafia 3 more from what i can tell. Taste and jealousy are two different things
My aunt's grandmother enjoys Gears of War more than Killzone 2./s
See, I can make up stories too!
Horizon is the type of game fankids love to hate
Looking at the other contenders, it didn't have much in the way of competition. That theme song is great, but in overall score Nier Automata and Persona 5 are ahead by light years.
Yeah I loved Horizon but its soundtrack doesn't have anything on Nier or Persona 5. People will be lauding those two games soundtracks for decades to come, and no one will be able to even recognize Horizons generic orchestrated soundtrack by the end of this year.
i 100% agree
Awesome well done Horizon 👏
A great game continues winning.
Is this surprising? Well, looks like Guerrilla nailed it hard. They continue winning....
YES! I have only hummed three gaming-soundtracks in my life. Metal Gear Solid theme (sons of liberty), the uncharted theme and now Horizon ZD. I just love it!
You need to go play some games then
so because he doesn't hum a lot of theme songs he doesn't play many games? Pretty dumb comment tbh
Why because he hums three gaming soundtracks that he really enjoyed. You need to gtho with your condescension and not care so much about what gaming soundtracks he enjoyed most in his life
Nothing can beat Castlevania: Lords of Shadow's OST.
Wow good choice, I still recon Gareth Cokers Ori and The Blind Forest has it.
I've written orchestration for variations on a few themes in University but his are sublime
I'll check out the OST when I get a chance.
You won't regret it.
Thank you Sony for having so much faith in G.G. and letting them craft this masterpiece.
You know youve made a impression when Phillip Spencer says... "We need to craft a horizon zero dawn type game." 😂😂
This game has an amazing soundtrack. My only complaint is the lack of using it while traveling around the world. I really miss good old world map music. They did an amazing job on the music just want to hear it more lol.
The soundtrack is amazing.
Sweet, take that Eurogamer and USgamer with your "forgettable soundtrack" garbage review.
