Yesterday we reported that Knut Avenstroup Haugen won the award for the Best Original Song – Video Game category with “The Coast of Ardashir” from Age of Conan at the Hollywood Music in Media AwardsToday we learn that the award for the Best original Score -Video Game category went to an unexpected winner: Gerard Marino for the soundtrack of Spiderman: Edge Of Time.

The score of the latest Spiderman video game had to compete with some quite prestigious nominees: Dead Space 2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, James Bond 007: Blood Stone, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine , Rage and Dragon Age 2, but it still came up on top.

Considering the currently rather disastrous Metacritic score, I seriously doubt the game will get many other awards this year, but at least it got one. Not everyone can say that.

RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
