GJA: Skyrim voted the Best RPG

Bethesda stands tall above strong competition from EA and Blizzard

Critically acclaimed blockbuster Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has taken the top RPG prize at this year's hmv Golden Joystick Awards.


In an immensely competitive category of prodigious RPG dev talent, Skyrim managed to edge ahead of Diablo III (Blizzard) and Mass Effect 3 (EA).

CVG awarded the game a 9.5 in its beastly Skyrim review.

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