The Witcher 3 dominates at the Golden Joystick Awards 2015

The 33rd annual Golden Joystick Awards took place in London last night at the O2 Indigo, and it proved quite a successful night for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which managed to walk away with five gongs including the highly coveted Ultimate Game of the Year award.

Hosted by Danny Wallace, who is perhaps best known to gamers as the voice of Shaun Hastings in  the Assassin’s Creed franchise, this year’s awards packed 24 categories, 21 of which were voted by the gaming public.
