The Golden Joystick 2016 winners have been named! Just a little over a month before the year ends, gamers have named this year’s Ultimate Game of the Year, which is Dark Souls 3.

Other games that were given major awards were Titanfall 2 (Critics Choice Award), The Witcher 3 Blood and Wine (Best Storytelling and Best Virtual Design), and Pokemon Go (Innovation of the Year).
