Mick Gordon is Bringing Doom to The Game Awards, Here’s a Sneak Peek
Doom Kickdrum

Pure gaming bliss. That’s the best way to describe Doom. id Software and Bethesda continued their recent tradition of delivering the best in single player shooters. Doom is a throwback to the shooter past. A silent protagonist and smooth gameplay.

But one of Doom’s biggest hurdles was doing right by the soundtrack. Bethesda and id tapped Mick Gordon to do the honors. And he could not have done a better job. The iconic E1M1 is fantastic. BFG Division is a fan favorite. The music meshes so well with the gameplay. Hell, I even caught myself letting the music play at the end of each mission to jam out to the incredible soundtrack.

Geoff Keighley knows Doom’s soundtrack is a fan favorite and is bringing Mick Gordon to play a piece of the game’s soundtrack at December 1’s (Thursday) The Game Awards. Is it wrong I’m more pumped to see this than some new gameplay?

So, what piece of music are we getting? Rip & Tear? At Doom’s Gate (E1M1)? BFG Division? Hopefully, all of them. Unfortunately, The Game Awards only lasts so long. But Matt Halpern gave us a little tease of what Mick Gordon and crew are working on this week.

Yep, tomorrow is going to be awesome. New Mass Effect gameplay and this? Geoff’s got a good show on his hands for sure. The only thing better than Mick Gordon tomorrow would be a single player DLC reveal for Doom.

Mick Gordon isn’t the only musical guest tomorrow. Run the Jewels is also taking the stage ahead of their next album RTJ3.

Which award will Doom win?

Here’s the list of awards Doom is up for tomorrow:

Game of the Year
Best Studio/Game Direction
Best Music/Sound Design
Best Action Game

Doom is great, but I don’t see it winning Game of the Year. Overwatch and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End will probably split Game of the Year and Best Studio/Game Direction.

Now, Best Music/Sound Design? It’ll be a crime if Doom is snubbed for this one. No way Mick Gordon’s excellent soundtrack gets overlooked here.

As for Best Action Game? Doom is up against heavy hitters including Titanfall 2, Overwatch, Battlefield 1 and Gears of War 4. Probably not going to happen.

Do you think Doom could be a dark horse for Game of the Year?
