SA Gamer Awards 2018 – Best Soundtrack

Horizon Zero Dawn, Halo 2, Metal Gear Solid 2, Journey, The Legend of Zelda, Silent Hill 2, Skyrim and many more classic games come embodied with something only the great games of our time gets right – an unforgettable soundtrack. There have been games with a fantastic soundtrack in 2018, but there is one that stood out from the rest and that is…

God of War

Since first being shown off at E3 2016, the God of War theme song was stuck in our head for days. At that particular show, we saw Bear McCreary putting his heart and soul into a composition he had worked on, it was the perfect introduction to the new God of War. The original God of War theme has for years been revered as one of the best productions in the industry, but somehow the 2018 God of War game took it to an all new level, while still respecting the work of other composers before it.

It brought Kratos’ new Norse world to life as the main theme song would reverberate throughout your playthrough, setting a mood of the mammoth task that was ahead of him and Atreus. Below is a reminder of why this soundtrack stuck with us throughout 2018 and why we consider it the best. Hmmm hmmmmmm hmm, hmmmm, hmmmmmmmm, hmmm…

Runner-Up:  Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Honourable Mention: Spider-Man, Octopath Traveler

Married to a gamer and she kicks my ass at most shooters. If the game is enjoyable I'll play it, no matter the format.
