Golden Joystick Awards 2021 winners. Which game was the best?

We know the results already! Who won the most awards?

The Golden Joystick Awards rewarded the winners in 22 categories. What may come off as a surprise, Resident Evil Village has been rewarded in the Ultimate Game of the Year category, along with two others! The latest RE has also won in the PlayStation Game of the Year category.

What’s quite interesting, the Ultimate Hardware of All Time award has been given to PC and collected by no other than Gabe Newell. Go figure.

The Ultimate Game of All Time award has been given to Dark Souls, which defeated many other titles, including such classics as Tetris.
