Take a look at all the Golden Joystick winners.

As 2016 comes to an end, the time has come to reflect on the various titles that have been released throughout the past year. With that in mind, Friday night held the 34th annual Golden Joystick awards at the O2 Arena in London.

The spot for Ultimate Game of the Year went to Dark Souls 3. The game which took developers FromSoftware three years to make was released back in March to immediate praise and critical acclaim.


Speaking of the award, Dan Dawkins, the chief editor of GamesRadar+ stated:

“Dark Souls 3 is the very deserving winner of Ultimate Game Of The Year”

“On the surface, the series is most well-known for its difficulty, but it’s the impeccable combat, ingenious design and subtly-integrated, dense, lore that binds the game to our affections.”
