Breaking Joysticksâ€™ tradition, weâ€™ve made significant changes to the awards categories for 2010. No longer are there any console-specific awards, instead – the Joysticks will be awarded for the best titles in specific genres, including Fighting, Strategy and Music. We continue to celebrate UK talent with the â€˜UK Developer of the Yearâ€™ category and the prestigious â€˜Ultimate Game of the Yearâ€™ category remains, as does â€˜One to Watchâ€™, predictor of so many videogame hits over the years.
