The Golden Joystick Awards 2012 – All the winners, right here!

1 min read


The 2012 Golden Joystick awards was more than just your usual collection  of games being honoured this year, as the event celebrated a milestone 30th year in business. It was glitz, glamour and appreciation towards the games industry that night, or at least I think so. I’m blacklisted from the event, after that incident back in 2010 where I set a Guitar Hero band on fire. Jimi Hendrix told me to do it! Anyway, here are the winners, all listed below.

Best Action-Adventure

  • Batman: Arkham City

Best use of DLC

  • Portal 2 (Perpetual Testing Initiative)

Best Download Game

  • Minecraft (360)

Best Fighter

  • Mortal Kombat Komplete

Best Handheld Game

  • Uncharted: Golden Abyss

Best MMO Shortlist

  • World of Tanks

Best Mobile or Tablet Game

  • Angry Birds Space

Best Racing Game

  • Forza 4

Best RPG

  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Best Shooter

  • Battlefield 3

Best Browser Game

  • Slender

Best Sports Game

  • FIFA 12

Best Strategy Game

  • Civilization V: Gods and Kings

The One to Watch Award

  • GTA V

Top Gaming Moment

  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Throat of the World

The Golden Joystick Ultimate Game Award

  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Overall, a pretty solid list, except for the part where Angry Birds Space won best mobile/tablet game. Scoff. Scoff to the max! That award should have gone to Kingdom Rush I say! What do you think? Do you agree with these awards, or were some better games overlooked in the judging process? Like Kingdom Rush? Kingdom Rush! DAMMIT, KINGDOM RUUUUUUUUSH!
