You'd think, with what a terrible year 2020 has been, that you'd want to just completely forget it ever happened. But if there's one thing we should celebrate, it's the amazing video games that were released over the past twelve months. Embedded above is my annual mixtape featuring some of the best music from some of the best video game soundtracks of 2020. Included on the list is 'The Last of Us Part II' composed by Gustavo Santaolalla.

THE LAST OF US PART II (ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK) via Sony features music written by Santaolalla and Mac Quayle for the second installment of the fan-favorite action-adventure game from Sony Interactive Entertainment.  Developed by Naughty Dog, The Last of Us Part II is available now for PlayStation® 4 (PS4™) system.

Of the soundtrack, composer GUSTAVO SANTAOLALLA says, "Composing the music for The Last of Us Part II represented one of the biggest challenges of my career. Diving into the universe of the first game inspired me to come up with sounds, instrumentation and moods that became very closely related to the story and the characters. Fortunately, people found in the music the precise emotional support that a story such as The Last of Us required. The way in which fans related to the score of that first game is something I had never experience before.
