Is your joystick golden?

Vote for your favorite games in the UK's most-beloved annual awards

Aug 22, 2007

You know how everytime there's a bigvideogame awards show, something goes wrong? Sometimes it's Crash Bandicoot 12 winning best FPS, sometimes it's Pac-Man being given the lifetime achievement award for his contribution to the racing game genre, sometimes it's the fact that Jamie Kennedy is there, but the point is: you always find yourself yelling at the TV, magazine, or computer screen about how you could do it better. Well, here's your chance.

It's time for the Golden Joystick awards, arguably the most important videogame awards in Europe and the UK. And if you happen not to live in the UK, this is your chance to show those funny-talking folks over there which games real gamers think are the best.

Get clicking.


I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
