The Game Audio Network Guild has publicly announced the winners of its 10th annual G.A.N.G. Awards, which honored the standout achievements in video game audio for titles released in 2011.
Following its official ceremony at GDC 2012 last week, the Game Audio Network Guild has publicly announced the winners of its 10th annual G.A.N.G. Awards, which honored the standout achievements in video game audio for titles released in 2011. DICE's big-budget shooter Battlefield 3 earned the most honors, taking home three awards, including one for Audio of the Year. Valve's Portal 2, BioWare's Star Wars: The Old Republic, and Supergiant's Bastion also stood out as notable winners, with the games taking home two awards each. Prolific video game composer, sound designer, and G.A.N.G. co-founder Tommy Tallarico received this year's Lifetime Achievement award for his long and productive career in the video game industry. In addition to working on hundreds of titles, Tallarico also created the video game concert tour Video Games Live. "[Tallarico] has literally helped hundreds of people get into the video game industry and realize their dreams," said G.A.N.G. president Paul Lipson "There has never been a more deserving person for this award. His work and his life embody everything that G.A.N.G. is about." All of the nominees at this year's awards were selected by a 70 person advisory committee, and the winners were chosen via a general vote among all of G.A.N.G.'s members.
