Who won what in the 33rd Golden Joystick Awards

The votes have been cast, the votes have been tallied, the votes have been transmogrified into Golden Joysticks, and now these Joysticks of gold have been handed to the winners.

In case you’re unaware, the Golden Joystick Awards are – so Wikipedia, font of all knowledge tells me – the second oldest award ceremony after the Arcade Awards. The Golden Joysticks Awards are decided by the British public’s votes over a selection of categories; over nine million votes were cast for the 2014 Awards.

So, who won what? Find out below.
