2009 Golden Joystick Awards Open for Voting

by Rainier on May 1, 2009 @ 11:27 a.m. PDT

Voting is now open for the 27th Annual Golden Joystick Awards and your votes will make all the difference for the world’s favourite gaming awards show.

If you are fed up with your favourites not getting praise and attention from the people who write the games websites and magazines, why not join up with fellow fans online to start your own voting campaign? A little bit of hard work over the next few weeks could put that forgotten classic on the way to the recognition and immortality it deserves.

The Golden Joysticks are voted for by the only people who matter – gamers themselves. At the Joysticks you’ll find no shady industry panels calling the shots – these really are the people’s gaming awards. Make sure your favourite games, developers, publishers and retailers get the love they deserve and you could now be in with a chance of winning some fantastic prizes.

Head on over to the Golden Joystick website and have your say with your votes helping to choose the finalists across the fifteen gamer voted categories

In 2008, votes were cast for the likes of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Guitar Hero III and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Will 2009 see the latest Call of Duty game walk away with another armful of awards? Should Killzone 2, Halo ODST and FIFA make it into the rankings this year? Can Nintendo translate DS sales into victory for Professor Layton? Only you can decide, because it's only your votes that count.
