Days Gone PS4 PlayStation 4 Golden Joystick Awards 2019

The 37th annual Golden Joystick Awards is on the horizon, and the nominees have been revealed. Unlike other award ceremonies, where the winners are picked by a committee, the Golden Joysticks are decided by public voting, and you can now have your say over on GamesRadar.

This year has an interesting mix of titles all vying for victory. Days Gone, Control, and Observation are among the most nominated with three nods each. We've listed all the PlayStation relevant categories below, but there are a few more over on the official site. The ceremony itself takes place on 15th November, so there's just a few weeks to get your votes in. What do you think of this year's nominees? Make your predictions in the comments below.
