Daniel Dawkins, Content Director, Games and Film at GamesRadar+ said:

"As this console generation reaches maturity, we’ve never seen such a diverse field of Ultimate Game of the Year nominees: free-to-play shooters, the rebirth of FMV storytelling, hardcore RPGs and a meme-generating goose. Based on Golden Joystick Awards voting so far, indie games are more than capable of competing with AAA blockbusters, and this UGOTY shortlist is too close to call. The Ultimate Game of the Year award - now in its 37th year - holds a special place in the industry’s affections since it is voted for by the people who buy and play games. Every vote makes a difference.”

 

The main event will be hosted by comedian Danny Wallance, with a pre-show, hosted by Alix Wilton Regan. The whole event will be live streamed via the Golden Joystick’s Twitch channel from 3:30pm GMT, so viewers can follow all the action live on the night.

   

The Golden Joystick Awards honour the games and developers that have transformed the global games industry in 2019. The event features over 20 categories, the majority of which are voted for by the public. The event was first held in 1983 and since then it has grown to become the world’s largest public voted gaming awards brand.
