The Last of Us Official Theme

#1 Edited by Fjordson (2448 posts) -
Naughty Dog has revealed that double Oscar-winner Gustavo Santaolalla is composing the music for upcoming PS3-exclusive The Last Of Us. The Argentine composer won back-to-back Academy Awards for Best Score for his work on Brokeback Mountain (2005) and Babel (2006).
"With this music we're trying to get emotion. We're not going for horror," Druckmann explained. "There's going to be horrific things happening in this game, but that's not the focus of it. The monsters aren't the focus of it, it's the relationship between Joel and Ellie."

I like it a lot. Almost get a Fallout vibe from it in the beginning. The more I hear about this game, the more interested I am.

You forgot the "Song" part. I was expecting something completely different....

What did you think "official theme" would mean?

2012's soundtrack of the year perhaps?

That's pretty good. I wasn't expecting it.

It sounds like a more tense take on Akira Yamaoka's Theme of Laura.

Or a riff on Diablo II's Act I wilderness.

@Fjordson: Sounds like something out of Borderlands, as well. Good song.

@RuthLoose: Yep, totally agree. Sounds like a Diablo theme song too, hehe.
