GJA: Top Gaming Moment goes to Skyrim's Throat of the World

Bethesda takes gold at prestigious awards event

Bethesda has emerged on top at the 30th hmv Golden Joystick Awards, picking up the prize for Top Gaming Moment.


The award was given for a famous scene in the game where the player ascends the Throat of the World, the peak mountain of Skyrim with a memorable adversary waiting at the summit.

Bethesda takes the award ahead of Swedish studio DICE for its "Going Hunting" segment in Battlefield 3, as well as the Mass Effect 3 "Tuchanka Choice" dilemma.

Over four million votes were cast in this year's Golden Joysticks - almost twice the previous Guinness World Record-breaking best.
