Naughty Dog’s PS4 Limited Edition is Fall Guys at this year’s Golden Joystick Minecraft also won two each.

The Game Awards are now established as the closest thing to the Oscars for video games, but there are alternatives to the much older Golden Joystick Awards, which were voted by fans rather than critics.

The 38th Golden Joystick Awards Ceremony announced winners in 20 categories last night after more than 3 million public votes were held.

The biggest winner of the night was Naughty Dog’s The Last Of Us Part 2, which won the Game of the Year award, Best Storytelling, Best Visual Design, Best Audio, and PlayStation Game of the Year. Developer Naughty Dog also won the Studio of the Year award.

The surprise hit Fall Guys have won the Best Multiplayer and Best Family Games, and Minecraft has returned home with the Still Playing Award and Best Community Games.

Despite being first released in 2018, Sandra Sard won the Best Performer for her role as Ms. Marvel at Marvel’s Avengers, and Amazon Ass won the Breakthrough Prize, chosen by critics. Only 3 awards.

The Team17 worm has also been inducted into the Golden Joystick Hall of Fame.

Game Awards 2020 will be held on December 10th, so it’s interesting to see how well the two award shows match. The Last Of Us Part 2 is clearly a leading candidate for the Game of the Year award, but it could face more competition in other categories.
