Established in 1983, the Golden Joystick Awards are the world's longest-running public-voted games awards, with a star-studded ceremony held in London each year.

Known as the ‘People’s Gaming Awards’, the 2019 edition saw millions of votes cast by gaming fans from all over the world, with Resident Evil 2 scooping the much-coveted Ultimate Game of the Year trophy, alongside notable wins for Control, Outer Wilds and Days Gone. The Golden Joystick Awards were delighted to award legendary developer Yu Suzuki - creator of Out Run, Virtua Fighter and Shenmue - its prestigious Lifetime Achievement award. The Golden Joystick Awards 2020 shortlist will be announced in late September, with new categories including Best Gaming Community, which recognises the most vibrant and inclusive online games.
