Bandai Namco’s Elden Ring and Cult of the Lamb headline the list of winners at the 2022 The Golden Joystick Awards, the world’s longest-running video game award event, organised by games media publisher Future. The award is a People’s Choice award ceremony, meaning it determines category winners entirely by public voting. While Elden Ring made the most impact, taking out four different awards, the category winners were otherwise quite varied. Cult of the Lamb was awarded Best Indie Game, Metal: Hellsinger took out best Audio, Vampire Survivors won the Breakthrough Award, and newcomer Manon Gage won the award for Best Performer, thanks to her portrayal of Marissa Marcel in Immortality – a well-deserved win, if you ask us. In regards to the platform-specific award winners, Pokemon Legends Arceus took out the Nintendo Game of the Year Award, feline adventure Stray took out the PlayStation Award, Obisdian’s multiplayer survival game Grounded took out the Xbox award, and Return to Monkey Island grabbed the PC award. The full list of finalists and winners follows below, courtesy of GamesRadar. • Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course [WINNER] • The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom [WINNER] • The Last Of Us Part I • The Callisto Protocol The Truth of Black Iron Trailer • skate.
