Baldur's Gate three sweeps Golden Joystick Awards, Starfield secures Xbox Game of the Year



The 41st Golden Joystick Awards came about on the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London this week, and it must come as no wonder to study that one game absolutely ruled lawsuits: Baldur's Gate 3, winner of 7 awards including the coveted Ultimate Game of the Year. There became additionally a massive award for Starfield, which received Xbox Game of the Year.

2023 has been one of the first-class years for sport releases in current memory – right here's a few PC titles you need to be gambling. But Baldur's Gate 3 has stood above the rest as the highest-rated PC game ever on Metacritic, the best universal recreation ever on OpenCritic, PC Gamer UK's satisfactory-scoring game of all time, and the listing goes on.

The Golden Joystick Awards is also called the People's Gaming Awards as the winners are voted for by the general public. Five million people showed their love for Baldur's Gate three via crowning it winner inside the storytelling, high-quality visual layout, studio of the year (Larian), best sport network, fine-helping performer (Neil Newbon as Astarion), PC sport of the yr, and the closing game of the 12 months classes. You can see the whole listing of nominees and winners at the bottom of the web page.

Only a further sport secured more than one awards all through the occasion: Final Fantasy sixteen, for high-quality audio and actor best lead performer - Ben Starr for his performance as Clive Rosfield.

Some different outstanding winners covered the once-hated No Man's Sky. Thanks to its outstanding turnaround in fortunes considering being released in 2016, the distance/survival recreation secured the Still Playing award. Another unsurprising win went to the tremendous Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty for fine enlargement, whilst the critics' preference award went to every other top identify of 2023, Alan Wake II. As for the most desired game among citizens, that turned into Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth.

One game that hasn't been as universally loved as Baldur's Gate 3 is Starfield. Bethesda's big adventure RPG changed into one of the maximum predicted video games in years, but it is truthful to mention that the reception failed to live as much as the hype in many instances. However, no matter a user score of 7.Zero on Metacritic, electorate nonetheless chose Starfield because the Xbox sport of the year. Its class wasn't the strongest, admittedly - Chants of Sennaar, Hi-Fi Rush, Planet of Lana, Dead Space Remake, and Pentiment – and even as this writer is a big fan of the remaining two, I'd still have predicted Starfield to win here.
