The 2018 Golden Joystick Awards have been announced! God of War, Detroit: Become Human, Red Dead Redemption 2 and more grab trophies!
It's really a tough one between God of War and Red Dead Redemption 2 this year.
I think it will come down to see if the multiplayer to RDR2 is what sets it apart from GoW
well, i think GoW controls already set it apart from RDR2.
I think RDO will be seen as a separate thing to RDR2.
True...however Game of the Year: Fortnite Is this some kind of out of season April Fools joke...
you all have mobiles don't you? Play fornite.
HAHA!! That diablo mobile launch event was hilarious
It probably had the most influence over gamers and the industry this year. Was also the first game to do cross play between all the major console. Love or hate the game, I can see why maybe it's worhy.
Am I wrong when I say fortnite came out last year?
Personally, I think God of War should win. One of the best games this generation and a true work of art.
Wow Fortnite beat RDR2 and GOW for Ultimate GOTY. I'm speechless.
Yeah, didn't see that one coming! I thought for sure GoW was getting, considering it dominated the rest of the awards.
Yea, unfortunately it's fan voted and Fortnite has the largest fanbase across all platforms, mobile included. Damn shame.
Money money money, MONEY!
best VR game is Skyrim VR? WTF?? that's not how you spell Astrobot!
Maybe astrobot was to late to the party but even so Skyrim was pretty good not be goty good but still
And that's not how you spell Firewall Zero Hour.
Think it is Tetris Effect,.. probably goty too
Popular opinion, nothing to do with actual level of achievement/quality.
Red dead Redemption 2 was not included in other voting categories. Only games launched before October were considered for voting categories. They just included it in critics choice category.
Actually no... RDR 2 was nominated for GOTY Here are the results , check out the winners and nomination on twitter. Fortnite is 1st Red Dead Redemption 2 is 2nd COD BLACK OPS 4 is 3rd and God Of War is 4th
Current GOTY race: God of War: 3 GOTY awards Fortnite: 1 GOTY award RDR2: 1 GOTY award. Will be interesting to watch as it continues to unfold.
Start counting from now. All these awards till now only considered games launched before October. Rdr2 was not a nominee in any of them except TIME magazine's list. It just somehow won critics choice award.
Don't be surprised when the numbers keep piling up for God of War. I've heard tons of games press from various sites saying it's still their GOTY even after RDR2. RDR2 turned a lot of people off with its dated gameplay and the fact that it's not particularly fun to play. Impressive visuals only go so far.
RDR 2 was nominated for GOTY and came 2nd
Surprised how well God of War is doing -- a lot of times when a game comes out earlier in the year, it's forgotten by awards season.
That hasn't been true for awhile now. Go back and look at recent years and the majority of the time it's a game that came out in the first half of the year. Witcher 3, Zelda, Horizon Zero Dawn, Uncharted 4, Bloodborne, etc.
RDR2 is a lot more fun to play for me, than GoW. It really depends on each player what kind of gameplay they enjoy.
game of the year is subnautica lol
That would still be miles better than Fortnite being GOTY. Subnautica was genuinely a great game. I have nothing against Fortnite, but for me BR games are starting to wear off.
Fortnite came out in 2017 right? September if I remember correctly So how does it win Game of the Year 2018?
That's exactly what I can't get my head around
Even if they went from LAST years Joystick award show, November 2017, it's still missing the cut off point by 2 months. It makes no sense...I wonder if fans voted hard enough they could get Super Mario 64 to win Game of the Year in 2019
Fornite, released July 25th 2017......so by Golden Joystick's logic, Mario Odyssey should have been up for it too seeing as it was released in October XD This is why these game awards should never be taken seriously, they can't even get the basics right.
Fortnite save the world released in July. Battle Royale in September. Splitting hairs here though it still missed that window
That's what I can't understand either...
As usual, a lot of the truly great games goes unappreciated.
Guessing it's been out over a year now & how popular the game is.Though some of us don't see Fortnite but it is what it is.
Shocked Spiderman isn't on that list
It wasn't top in any of those categories. Visual art, story, soundtrack, coop, competitive, ps goty, goty. So not really. Only psgoty was possible but we all know gow has it beat
I have not gotten into RDR2 played it for a couple hours same with GOW and Spiderman. I would say Monster Hunter World was my GOTY.
"Game of the Year: Fortnite" - Woot? O_o
game of the year: fortnite? seriously?
fortnite as goty is so cringe, but at least god of war won 3 awards
Fortnite taking Game of the Year award is the biggest joke of the year. Heck, it is the biggest joke of the entire gaming history.
Fortnite.... really? *Walks out room* Kratos and Arthur looking at each other like " you gotta be kidding me"
Fortnite is their GOTY?! What a joke.
I'm shocked! A multiplatform, ftp shooter, filled with microtransactions, multiplayer only, with no emotional story whatsoever is game of the year by people's choice? P.S.: GOW4 is my personal GOTY.
fortnight is overrated as goty, i mean i played battlefield heroes back in 2008 which was essentially the same game
The only award Fortnite should get is "The most inconsistent shooter" award.
Let me correct this. Best wanted game Diablo Mortal Best game launch Battlefield Vegana Best performance Fallout 68 Best storytelling Fallout 69 Best multiplayer No man sea Game of the year Fortnite that was ok
Fully deserved God of War!!
fortnite? gaming is screwed now.
Lmao fortnite, thats just as offensive as giving it to overwatch. This is why no one takes these stupid awards seriously anymore, what a joke
Fortnite should win most overrated game award, not game of the year. How did it win game of the year anyway? it wasn't even released in 2018. I can't take these game awards seriously, every single year they ignore 99% of games released and only focus on the latest fads and biggest AAA games.
Okay I agree with most of the awards here up until GOTY.. LOL I guess next year it will go to Diablo Immortal 😂
Wait, Fortinte is the GOTY? *look at my profile pic*
I don't agree with game of the year being Fortnite but for months & practically everyday now I've seen so many high streaming numbers of folks playing Fortnite which seems the corny game is very popular among folks. Every game awards is not going to think how other folks are thinking & pick what game they think is deserving. Folks are going to have to get over it & move on because the world keeps spinning & life goes on.
