Golden Joystick Awards: All the results inside

golden joystick awards 2012

The Golden Joystick Awards have just concluded, with the big winner being Skyrim, taking home Ultimate Game of the Year.

But it was a big year for the awards themselves – not only is this the ceremony’s 30th anniversary, it also received a record-smashing 4 million votes in total – more than doubling the Guinness World Record they set last year.

Results such as best RPG going to Skyrim should surprise nobody, but some of the winners were a little more unexpected, such as Battlefield 3 edging out Modern Warfare 3 for Best Shooter, and World of Tanks claiming the Best MMO.

Check out the full list of winners below:
