Jose Gonzalez To Skin Faces of At 2010 Spike Video Game Awards

By Chris Guzman

Jose Gonzalez, the Swedish singer-songwriter who has become known somewhat to video gamers lately is coming to the Video Game Awards this year. His song ‘Far Away’ was used in Red Dead Redemption, then put on the games official soundtrack, and now has over 1 million combined views on Youtube. Players who heard the song in the game felt the power and emotion this song gave the storyline, something that can be difficult to do in a video game.

Nonetheless, this year’s Video Game Awards seems to be jam packed with talent, with Niel Patrick Harris hosting, big reveals from Bioware, Epic Games, and even Sony the next day. For now though, hit that break and hear some Jose Gonzalez awesomeness.

An avid gamer since birth, I consider myself a new-age gamer. My first system was the N64, but the first system I really cared about was my Xbox Original. I'm a computer science major in college, and spend all my money on games, and stuff I don't need. I've never played Zelda or many Mario games in my youth. I'm also a huge sports fan, and a chick flick lover. My favorite games include Gears of War, Halo, Fallout, GTA, Mass Effect, and Metal Gear Solid.
