Golden Joysticks: All the winners

Full list of winners inside

The 26th Annual Golden Joystick Awards has come and gone - well, at least for those watching it online. We're just getting into our groove at the after party and we've got a feeling we're going to have some sore heads tomorrow.


The awards were hosted by funny man Frankie Boyle, and in case you didn't manage to tune in to watch them live we'll bring you a brief recap of what happened below, though there will be another chance to watch the awards show if you missed it. Keep an eye out for that.

Basically Activision cleaned up. Call of Duty 4 scooped four awards (Multiplayer Game Of The Year, PC GOTY, Online GOTY and Ultimate GOTY), and Call of Duty 5 taking the One to Watch award. Oh yeah, and Activision won publisher of the year too.

Rockstar also nabbed three gongs, picking up Developer Of The Year, Soundtrack Of The Year and Xbox GOTY for Grand Theft Auto IV.

There were of course plenty of other awards and winners too, and you can see how it all went down minute by minute by checking out our live blog coverage from our man on the floor.
