Well deserved. But there are questions about the PC Game of the Year category.
The 40th anniversary Golden Joystick Awards has come to an end, all awards have been presented to the nominees. The awards ceremony was hosted by voice actors Troy Baker and Laura Bailey, and visitors to the GamesRadar website took part in the voting.
The undisputed winner of the Golden Joystick Awards 2022 was the action RPG Elden Ring, which won four awards at once, including the most important one (“Game of the Year” according to critics and players). As for the developers of this project from FromSoftware, they were also awarded in the Studio of the Year category.
Unexpectedly, Return to Monkey Island was the best game of the year on PC, Grounded was the best of the best on Xbox, and Stray, a cyberpunk cat adventure, was best of the best on PlayStation. By the way, it was this same cat that “received” the award as part of the ceremony.
The best gaming hardware in 2022 was the Steam Deck portable computer, on which occasion Gabe Newell himself volunteered to receive the award. The device became a triumph of the ceremony, gaining as much as 65% of the votes in its nomination. Finally, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has become the most anticipated game.

The best game is still worth talking about here – it was the roguelite action Cult of the Lamb, and the winner in the category “Best Acting” was the actress Manon Gage, who played Marissa in Immortality. The best trailer was the parody announcement video of the no less parody Goat Simulator 3, and Pokemon Legends: Arceus was the game of the year on the Nintendo Switch.
The voters also considered that Horizon Forbidden West had the best story in the past year, and Metal: Hellsinger had the best sound. Finally, the constantly heard Genshin Impact received an award in the “Best Support” category, which is understandable – the game receives a variety of content regularly, consistently and a lot.
