In the absence of The Game Awards 2021, we can always take a look at the Golden Joystick Awards 2021. One of the most relevant awards for the industry throughout the year, which this time has celebrated its 39th edition.

In addition, to round off the play, the organization has created two extra categories on the occasion of the 50 years of video game history, crowning the best hardware in history and the best title in history. A really difficult battle to decide.

Among the works nominated for best game of the year we find the same six as for the Geoff Keighley gala, but adding four more works, until completing a total of ten. Here is the complete list of winners:
