Breath Of The Wild Takes Home Ultimate Game Of The Year at 2017’s Golden Joystick Awards
Full list of winners announced!
The 35th annual Golden Joystick Awards were held in London last Friday, and The Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild won 4 prizes, one of which was the glorious Ultimate Game Of The Year. As a massive Zelda fan, I’m overjoyed to hear that its awesomeness was recognised by so many people!
What are the other 3 awards I hear you ask? Best Audio, Critic’s Choice, and Nintendo Game Of The Year.
Horizon Zero Dawn won Best Gaming Performance, Best Story Telling, and Playstation Game Of The Year awards. I’ve not been able to play this gem of a game as I only own a PC & a Nintendo Switch, so play-throughs on YouTube will have to suffice.
The Golden Joystick Hall Of Fame welcomed the Final Fantasy franchise, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds nabbed the Best Multiplayer Game & PC Game Of The Year awards, Sid Meier received the Lifetime Achievement award, and Cuphead snagged 2 awards.
