The Golden Joystick Awards 2019 are, simply put, the world's biggest publicly-voted gaming awards. Running since 1983, this year will be their 37th anniversary, with millions of people taking part to vote for their favourite games. It's your support that make the Golden Joystick Awards so special, as millions give something back to the creators and teams they love.
Over the years, the ceremony has played host to a number of legendary game developers and industry figures, including Hideo Kojima, Ken Levine, the CD Projekt Red team (who snuck a Gold Stick of Joy trophy replica into the Witcher 3) and more. Last year the revered creator of Dark Souls Hidetaka Miyazaki came to the ceremony in person to accept his award, so if you're after a glimpse of gaming's superstar developers you're going to want to tune into the Golden Joystick Awards 2019.


This is your chance to support your favourite games, developers, publishers and personalities of the year. The Golden Joystick Awards are only months away, and we'll shortly be announcing our new category list. You can vote for your favourite Xbox, PS4, Switch and PC titles across 20 diverse categories; with unannounced new awards that recognise the changing ways we play games. Below is everything you need to know about the Golden Joystick Awards 2019, along with when they are, how to watch it, and more.
