Golden Joystick Awards: Resident Evil Village is the best game of the year according to fans

Despite the fact that mass ceremonies cannot be held, this week the awards season in the video game industry officially began. The 39th installment of the Golden Joystick Awards awarded the best titles, studios and artists of 2021 in the field of video games, with some truisms and few surprises. The peculiarity of this awards ceremony is that each and every one of its categories was voted by the general public in recent weeks, unlike others that are in charge of specialized critics or the developer community itself.

The ceremony, which was broadcast live on the channels of GamesRadar, counted on the conduction of Emily rose and Nolan north, voice actors who are primarily known for playing Elena Fisher and Nathan Drake in the series’ video games Uncharted. Both commented that they were honored to participate in this edition of the awards ceremony, which for the 50 years of the gaming industry incorporated two new categories that celebrate the history of the industry.

To put the awards for Best Game of All Time and Best Hardware of All Time in context, the Golden Joystick Awards began with a short documentary on the history of video games, featuring footage from immortal classics, commercials videos, and events from the era and the testimonies of some of the most important players in the gaming industry in its early decades, such as John romero, co-creator of DOOM, and Trip hawkins, founder of Electronic arts.

During the award ceremony, artists from all over the world were also invited to collaborate in a powerful medley musical that traversed the history of gaming with some of the most important soundtracks of the last 50 years, from Super Mario Bros to The Last of Us Part II, going by Kingdom hearts, Metal Gear Solid, Crash Bandicoot and many more. Additionally, some trailers and previews of independent titles were also presented.
