The final shortlist for the the 27th Annual Golden Joystick Awards show been announced. A huge list of games has been whittled down into the handful for each category you see from today. Sega and more specifically Sonic Unleashed has made it into the shortlist for a number of categories including ‘Family Game of the Year’, Xbox and PlayStation Game of the Year and is even eligible for ‘Ultimate Game of the Year’ accolades.
Sonic isn’t the only Sega game up for voting as both House of the Dead: Overkill and Madworld are included in ‘Wii Game of the Year’ and the brilliant if underrated Valkeyria Chronicles featuring in ‘PlayStation Game of the Year’ and ‘Ultimate Game of the Year’ categories. You can even vote for Sega as ‘Publisher of the Year’. Sega and Sonic face some stiff competition with blockbuster games like Gears of War 2, Metal Gear Solid 4, Fallout 3, Bioshock and more all in the running for a number of categories. The blue team is going to need every vote they can get. Votes can be cast here in the ‘Vote Now’ section of the Golden Joystick Awards website.
The results will be announced at an award ceremony taking place in London on the 30th October. TSSZ News will update you with the winners and losers.
