Golden Joystick Awards 2021 given out. The Capcom hit did not give the competition a chance

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, Psychonauts 2 or Returnal had to recognize the superiority of Capcom’s position. The Japanese studio received many awards during the Golden Joystick Awards 2021, which may herald the beginning of a large season for developers.

The Golden Joystick Awards is the second-oldest awards ceremony, which has been awarded to the best video games since 1983. Last year, the event was dominated by Sony’s production – The Last of Us 2 gave no chance to the competition, winning as many as five statuettes, including the most important “Ultimate Game of the Year”.

Yesterday evening hosted by Nolan North and Emily Rose was held, during which Capcom rose to the fore and was voted the best studio of 2021. It was, however, the beginning because Resident Evil Village has received four awards in the categories “Best Audio”, “PlayStation Game of the Year”, “Best Performance” (Maggie Robertson as Lady Dimitrescu) and “Ultimate Game of the Year”.

There are some doubts as to whether Resident Evil Village is the best PlayStation game of 2021? In recent months, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Returnal or Deathloop, among others, have made their debuts on the market, while the Golden Joystick found its way into the hands of the Japanese band.

We can assume that Forza Horizon 5 did not receive any awards because it debuted on the market at the beginning of the month, so the jury was not able to distinguish the production.
