Naughty Dog Cleans Up At The Golden Joysticks – Best Studio, Best Game, Best Storytelling, More

The Golden Joystick Awards took place last night and the ceremony’s big winner was Naughty Dog, mostly thanks to The Last Of Us Part 2.

Award season in the movie business might not happen until the early part of next year, but for the games industry, we are right in the middle of it. Next month, we will discover which title has been named the best game of 2020. There are six nominees and we here at TheGamer have made our case as to why each one deserves to win, including Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Hades, and more.

Tuesday night was a big one for games awards season. The annual Golden Joystick Awards. There were 24 awards up for grabs in total, including best multiplayer game, best indie game, critic’s choice, and the much-coveted ultimate game of the year. Not only did Naughty Dog title The Last Of Us Part 2 win it, but the studio cleaned up.

The Last Of Us 2 won an impressive five awards in total. As well as being named ultimate game of the year, it also won awards for best storytelling, visual design, audio, and it was also named the best PlayStation game of the year. Naughty Dog also picked up a sixth award for the evening when it was named studio of the year. It wasn’t the only developer to perform well at the event, though.

Hit of the summer Fall Guys picked up a couple of awards, including multiplayer game of the year and best family game. Hades also did well winning the aforementioned award for critic’s choice and the best indie game of the year. Other winners on the night included Minecraft, Death Stranding, and Sandra Saad for her voice work as Kamala Khan in Marvel’s Avengers.

Award season continues and culminates with The Game Awards on December 10, 2020. That’s when the official game of the year will be announced, and The Last Of Us 2 is in with a chance of winning that too. With more people gaming this year than ever before, and this month marking the start of the next generation of console, being named GOTY means even more than it usually does.

Josh has been gaming for as long as he can remember. That love began with a mild childhood addiction to the Sega Genesis, or Mega Drive since he lives in the UK. Back then, Sonic 2 quickly became his favorite game and as you might have guessed from his picture, the franchise has remained close to his heart ever since. Nowadays, he splits his time between his PS4 and his Switch and spends far too much time playing Fortnite.
