BioShock rocks the nominees list for the 6th Game Audio Network Guild Awards

Aside from looking and playing great, BioShock is a great sounding game. Looking over the list of the nominees for the 6th Annual Game Audio Network Guild Awards, it seems that the game has made it into most of the categories, including Music of the Year, Audio of the Year, Sound Design, Best Score, Best Cutscene, Best Dialogue , and more.

G.A.N.G is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and recognition of game audio, and they've just announced the finalists for the 6th Annual G.A.N.G. Awards ceremony, which is to take place on Thursday, 21st February during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. The nominees and winners are chosen and voted on by their peers, including some of the best composers and sound designers in the games industry.

"It took the 50 person G.A.N.G. Advisory Board over a month to decide the final nominees,” said Tommy Tallarico, Founder/CEO/Chairman, Game Audio Network Guild (G.A.N.G.).  “With over 350 entries received this year, just being a final nominee is something to be very proud of.  When you see and hear the amazing quality of the titles nominated I think you get a very good sense of where the game audio industry is headed."

Who would you pick for the top audio and music in games in 2007? Was there something better than BioShock

Hit the jump to see the full list of nominees.

Every time I hear "I don't understand why people like _____ game", I get annoyed. Of course you understand, if you've listened to what those people were saying. You just don't agree, and that's A-OK. I HATE Twilight, but I understand why people like it.

Just tried playing the first Bayonetta game... it was really bad. Honestly I don't understand why Platinum games are so well regarded. None of them are really worthwhile.

I doubt I'll use it much but I'm totally fine with a block/ignore feature. Everyone has a right to speak, but I don't think anyone has a right to be heard. If this place played country music I'd want a mute button, basically :p.

Mall haul today (plus I split a BEAUTIFUL Star Wars Slave I with my brother). Any thoughts on Haze? Wanted to play it back when it came out and I had no PS3. For a dollar you can't go wrong!

I'm not gonna lie, I don't feel "good" about the upcoming "ignore" feature. Maybe it's just me, but I don't like the idea that people can mute other people because they don't agree with them. Spammers and trolls, sure, but not regular community members.

Wow, uh, after having a lovely time with Kirby Air Ride, I decided to try playing some melee, for old times sake... I pretty much disliked my whole time with it. More details in a comment if I get around to it.

The backend code on the site so fun to read. Going through some of Julio's old stuff: if($vars["fappers"]){ $fappoids = 0; $_xt_loop_name = "fappers"; $vars["fappers_cnt"] = count($vars["fappers"]); reset($vars["fappers"]);

Got out of Deadpool. It definitely was a movie with Deadpool in it. Some parents were shocked to learn it was also rated R for a reason.

So... gender and biology. All I'll say here is please respect people and their identities and don't try to push assumptions as fact. It doesn't need to be said to most here but denying people their identities is pretty harmful and very unpleasant.
