Last year saw Activisionâ€™s blockbuster Call of Duty series dominating the event, scooping three awards, while gamer power won out as Fallout 3 was named â€˜Ultimate Game of the Yearâ€™. Once again, the combined might of the online community was recognised when fans of â€˜Runescapeâ€™, the worldâ€™s largest free-to-play MMORPG rallied to honour Jagex as â€˜UK Developer of the Yearâ€™.
The Golden Joystick Awards, produced by Future, the special-interest media group, is voted for by the only people who matter â€“ gamers. It is known by many as â€˜the peopleâ€™s gaming awardsâ€™ and also held in high esteem by the video games industry, with nearly 1,000 executives attending the glittering ceremony.
The ever-growing Golden Joystick Awards is the ultimate accolade in gaming since 1982 and is now recognised as the biggest and most popular gaming awards on the planet. 1,223,646 votes were cast by gamers in 2009 as the Joysticks scooped itâ€™s own honour, being named â€˜Worlds most popular video games awardsâ€™ by Guinness World Records.
