Five Golden Joysticks For This Xbox One Title

Golden Joystick Awards 2016

Yesterday saw the 34th annual Golden Joystick awards which saw one game scoop accolades in no less than five categories.

The crown of the show, the Ultimate Game of the Year was awarded to Dark Souls 3, whilst Xbox One Game of the Year saw Rise of the Tomb Raider crowned with the achievement. It’s worth noting, that games released after the previous awards had closed, are eligible for the following year. However the big winner of the night was Overwatch.

Taking the top prize in the following five categories; Best Original Game, Best Multiplayer Game, Best Gaming Moment, PC Game of the Year, and Competitive Game of the Year. Not bad for a nights work! Don’t forget if you haven’t tried Overwatch yet, it’s available as part of the free play weekend until 22 November.  Check out the full list of winners across each category below:
