The 33rd Golden Joystick Awards has just opened up the ballots for the public to vote for various categories in the video game community. The awards is working with Digital Spy and Green Man Gaming this year and as incentive, GMG will allow voters to obtain a severely discounted copy of Bioshock Infinite for a pound/dollar or euro. There will also be a big discount for Bioshock 1 and 2 after voting. There are 21 categories to vote for including:

  • Best Audio
  • Best Original Game
  • Best Storytelling
  • Best Visual Design
  • Best Multiplayer
  • Best Indie Game
  • Best Family Game
  • Best Handheld/ Mobile Game
  • Innovation of the Year
  • Best Gaming Moments
  • Gaming Personality of the Year
  • eSports icon of the Year
  • Studio of the Year
  • Best Gaming Platform
  • Best Gaming Performance
  • Best PlayStation Game
  • Best Nintendo Game
  • Best Xbox Game
  • Best PC Game
  • Most Wanted Game
  • Ultimate Game of the Year

With a wide array of games in place for each category you can expect to see big titles such as Hotline Miami 2, Bloodborne, Dragon Age: Inquisition and Life is Strange. Sadly you might not agree to some categories or there might be some huge omissions, but each nominee has been included and chosen by the big names in video gaming editorials such as PC Gamer and Edge. Bloodborne has taken the cake so far for the most nominations with an impressive 9. This is followed by Her Story, Batman Arkham Knight and Life is Strange.

The winners of each category will be revealed on October 30th at the Indig02 event at London this year.

Let us know in the comments what you chose for some of these categories, or if you got one that’s not in the list! We’d love to know for our eventual end of year GotY polls!
