The Golden Joystick awards were handed out earlier today. (Golden Joystick is a British-based video game award show that, I think, has a little more credibility than Spike Video Game Award, primarily because it’s been around for 26 years.)

Anyway, you can watch the entire broadcast online here.

In the interest of preventing OMG SPOILERS, you’ll have to click through to see the list of winners.

Drum roll, please!
