Golden Joystick Awards Saw a lot of posts on my twitter of people showing what they voted for, I know some people here have voted when I mentioned it in my pinned thread, so I thought I'd ask what everyone was voting for and give anyone who missed my post one more chance to get a copy of XCOM Enemy Unknown. You do need a greenamngaming account if you want the free copy of XCOM. Some people are having problems getting a code, and I believe they are out of codes for certain countries, but it has been working for most people and is pretty quick and easy to do. Best Original Game: Tearaway Most Wanted: The Witcher 3 Best Indie: Shovel Knight (I have not played Jazzpunk, OlliOlli, and while I've been hearing a lot of great things about Republique the PC version has not been released yet and the mobile version has only had the first two episodes released so far) Best Visual Design: Tearaway Best Multiplayer: Nidhogg Best Audio: Transistor Best Moment: Rayman Legends Music Levels Best Storytelling: The Wolf Among Us Best Online: I have only played World of Tanks, GTA 5, and Destiny from this list and none of those interested me so skipping Best Handheld: Haven't played many of these games but would probably vote for Tearaway since it was something new and different that took full advantage of the system it is on Best Mobile: Haven't played any of the mobile exclusive games, would probably be Broken Age but the game is not done yet. No idea why Republique isn't listed here if it was listed as best indie. Platform of the Year: Steam (not sure why it isn't just PC) Studio of the Year: Blizzard Innovation of the Year: Twitch Personality of the Year: Anita Sarkeesian Game of the Year: The Wolf Among Us If you vote and get a code for XCOM EU, or even if you already have it, you will get an 80% off code for Enemy Within if you sign up for playfire and play the game (or leave it on) for an hour. Well worth signing up for playfire anyway, I think I've gotten about $45 of credit over the last few months. Edit: The time to get a free copy of XCOM should have passed by now
