Halo, Goodbye: Paul McCartney writing a game score for Bungie

It often seems as though the mainstream media (in this case Forbes) only feels comfortable covering video game culture if there’s a suitably mainstream angle to take, in this case the involvement of the increasingly irrelevant Sir Paul McCartney. What of the excellent (and, finally, award-winning) work of Jason Graves (BAFTA award winner, Dead Space), Akari Kaida (BAFTA award winner, Ōkami) and Jack Wall (BAFTA award nominee, Mass Effect 2)?

Nothing more to add. Really, I was just pleased with my Halo pun in the title. In lieu of any insightful analysis, I invite you to enjoy Still Alive, the brilliant song that accompanies the closing credits on Valve’s Portal (written by Jonathan Coulton and performed by Ellen McLain).

And, while we’re at it, here’s Want You Gone from the end of Portal 2.
