Nintendo and some game called Oblivion: Elder Scrolls cleaned house at the Golden Joysticks this year. It’s worth noting that the awards are given out by the public, which means people that don’t have crazy hair that may or may not be taking over their faces, too.
“The awards were presented by comedian Justin Lee Collins, and the winners included Nintendogs, which took home both the Family Game of the Year and the Girls’ Choice awards, and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, which was PC, Xbox, and Ultimate Game of the Year. Mario Kart DS was one of the runners-up of the day, coming second or third in several of the six categories it was shortlisted in, including Nintendo Game of the Year.”
How Electronic Arts got publisher of the year is beyond my ability to reason.
