    Sweet! I love the soundtrack for Black Ops 2! My favorite though came from Hans Zimmer in MW2

  • People actually buy game soundtracks?

    • Why not?

    • Fading Lee

      I got mine free with the $80 version

      • ONE BAR


        • Fading Lee

          $60 game + $40 season pass included in $80 package already equals $100 so yes, I’ll be counting anything else as free.

          • ONE BAR

            Season pass was not included… Haha

          • Fading Lee

            Oh that’s right BO2 was the one that fucked people out of that, (thanks for reminding me -_-‘) you win 🙂

    • James K

      Youtube is good enough.

    • Brandalf

      Have you ever heard the tracks from the Crysis games? They’re damned amazing. Not too many games have soundtracks worthy of purchase.

  • Sentrymann

    Good for them! It was a pretty great soundtrack.

  • Wow, apparantly somebody doesn’t like me with all those downvotes.

    • Trolol

      Look at your face? Maybe that’s why.

      • James K

        Damn! *fist pump*

      • I don’t know what was I expecting.

  • Josiah Johnson

    Hans Zimmer’s work in MW2 was amazing, although he only did the themes and Lorne Balfe did the real work, but Brian Tyler’s MW3 was also superb!

  • Tank Dempsey

    Another tuesday passes.. Still no sign of Extinction.. – Dempsey out

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      I expect it in November. Trying to save it for last.

  • Congrats to all the people who worked day and night to produce this work of art. After having the chance to meet Jack Wall himself, I feel even better!

    and the award for most quickscopers in a lobby goes to: black ops 2!!!!

    award for the worst maps in a fps shooter: no, i can’t believe it, black ops 2!!

    the award for most aim assist and game destroying sticky aim in a “competitive shooter”: nahh, once again….. black ops 2!!!!! ya, baby!

    • Batman

      CoD guns have no recoil to help noobies.

      BO2 truly has the worst maps, color pallete, models, and design of all time.

      Aim assist is really a bitch

      • Fuckingwow

        Ah, the good ol’ “the new CoD is around the corner and the current CoD is total shit” bias.

    • You know, I really hate it when people like voice their opinion. This is the Grammys, a ceremony where the awards go to best soundtracks and music from movies, TV shows, and video games. If you would know your stats, you would know that. And for the record, black ops 2 had some of the best engineered maps in a call duty to date. People loved the three lane maps, they made them very tactically easy for games like domination and CTF.

  • Batman

    MW2 was the best by far
    BO1 had the best song ever(but overall it was shitty)
    BO2 Was awesome
    Ghosts is looking even better than MW2

    CoD has great soundtracks

  • George

    It deserves it 🙂

  • I’d like to know where “Imma try it out” by Skrillex is on Spotify. I can’t find it anywhere!
