Geralt will be wearing a rather wry smile right now as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt pretty much dominated this year's Golden Joystick Awards. The annual awards are based on public voting, so it's safe to say that the games which end up winning have usually had a big impact on the gaming community.

CD Projekt Red's role-playing release, which launched back in May, nabbed four awards including Best Storytelling, Best Visual Design, Best Gaming Moment, and the biggest prize of all: Ultimate Game of the Year. Batman: Arkham Knight and Life is Strange ended up in second and third, respectively. Meanwhile, the developer itself took home the award for Studio of the Year. The latter is especially well deserved in our humble opinion.

Not bad, eh? Do you agree with the voting public? Have a good old rant in the comments section below.
