Civilization IV nominated for a Grammy

Awards recognise games for first time.

Strategy game Civilization IV has made history after becoming the first videogame to be nominated for a Grammy Award.

Composes Christopher Tin received the nomination for track Baba Yetu, which features in Civ IV's opening theme. Fancy a listen? Check out the video below. It reminds us of The Lion King.

Baba Yetu, which features the Soweto Gospel Choir, was short-listed for the "Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalists" category, reports Gamasutra.

Baba Yetu's going up against Roger Treece's "Baby", Vince Mendoza's "Based On A Thousand True Stories", Geoffrey Keezer's "Don't Explain" and Herbie Hancock and Larry Klein's "Imagine".

Will Tin, and by association Civ IV, win? We'll find out on 13th February, when the winner will be announced at the awards ceremony.
