That’s right! Skyrim is already winning awards – and it’s not even out yet!
The Golden Joystick awards are the biggest, most prestigious awards in gaming. This year over a million people (1,000,000) voted! That is a lot of nerds.
The big thing about the awards is that they are the oldest, the biggest and arguably the best. More import is the fact that it’s regular, normal* gamers who vote!
So what about Skyrim? How did it do? Well its worth mentioning that the awards are primarily for games that are actually out!
Despite this The Elder Scrolls IV: Skyrim won the award “One to Watch“.
This doesn’t really sound that impressive. On the other hand: “You can always judge a man by the quality of his enemies”. The same is true of video games! So what was the competition? Battelfield 3, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Batman: Arkham City, Unchrted 3, Minecraft (Full Version), Saints Row: The Third, and Assassins Creed: Revelations. Skyrim beat every single one of them. Ha.
Why did Skyrim win? I’ll look at that in the next post!
