Journey has a lot of things going for it. The simple fable comes to life through a beautiful, yet sedated art style. The gameplay is incredibly accessible while still offering players a satisfying experience. And that soundtrack, that haunting soundtrack, evokes an emotional response that brings an almost tangible weight to the story. The good folks at The Recording Academy must have enjoyed the music as well. They nominated the soundtrack for a Grammy. You might have heard about the nomination during Spike's VGAs. Like, 500 times.
