Voting has kicked off for the 26th Annual Golden Joystick Awards, and your vote can make all the difference when it comes to crowning the UK's favourite games. To find out how, clicky clicky!
See, the Joysticks are voted for by gamers only - you'll find no industry suits or fat cat company bosses calling the shots here. Publishers and devs alike love us - we've been dishing them out since 1982, when ZX Spectrum's were considered high technology and the Sinclair C5 was the car of the future. Last year nearly 750,000 votes were cast by gamers, and with YOUR help we can smash the one million mark this term.
So point your browsers towards www.goldenjoystick.com now and vote in as many of the fifteen gamer voted categories as you like. Let us know your fave games during the last twelve months and you could be in with the chance of winning some top prizes from a stack worth well over £10,000. Our pals at JOYTECH and at Mad Catz are well known for their wide assortment of quality accessories - find out more for yourselves at www.joytech.net and www.madcatz.com
