And The Winners Are...

The 27th annual Golden Joystick Winners were announced in London today, with Fallout 3 being crowned the "Ultimate Game of the Year.". Not surprisingly KillZone2 won the PS3 game of the year and Left4Dead won online game of the year.. HOW? i guess there must be some rabid L4D fanboys out there rigging the voting :) anyways, how did your votes go, what do you think of the winners?

I think Fallout 3 got the recognition it deserved, it truly is a very well crafted game that totally sucks you in to the Wastelands I have to admit to playing that game more than anything else in the last year and only put my gaming on hold as i'd played through the main story 3 times and crafted my character up to the level caps, well, except my uberevil character who cares not for levels and is on a mission to destroy every living person on the map :) but now the Fallout3 GoTY edition is here along with the complete DLC collection i think it won't be long before i'm standing in the ruins of DC laughing like a crazy person again. That's if i can kick my Borderlands habit i guess.

  1. Uncharted 2 should have won "one to watch". I see SCEE are pleased with the results (see the post on the EU blog). Well done to them - LBP and Killzone 2 are both very good titles that every PS3 owner should own!
