PUBG walks away with two Golden Joystick Awards


The debate is still on if PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds deserve to be nominated for the 2017 Game Of The Year Awards, but according to this weekend's Golden Joystick Awards, it deserves to win. The game walked away with two awards; best multiplayer game and best PC game of the year.

The Ultimate Game of the Year Award went to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, who took a total of four awards. Unlike the annual Game Of The Year Awards who selects winners by public voting and jury (panel of 51 industry people), it is entirely up to the fans who wins at the Golden Joystick Awards.
