The 2021 Golden Joystick awards that took place yesterday celebrated 50 years of gaming with the introduction of two special categories: Best Gaming Hardware Of All Time and Ultimate Game Of All Time. Given the nominees for both special categories, the competition was quite tough, but the winners were somewhat expected, especially on the hardware side.

For the Best Gaming Hardware Of All Time, Golden Joystick included nominees like PS 1/2/4, Nintendo SNES / N64 / Wii, PC, Atari 2600, ZX Spectrum, Amiga 500 and Commodore 64. As it turned out, PC (Master Race) won this category with 17% of the votes, followed by PS2 with 14%, SNES with 9%, PS4 with 8% and PS1 with 7%. Gabe Newell accepted the award on behalf of all PC gamers.

Golden Joystick’s list of nominees for the Ultimate Game Of All Time included notable influential games like Tetris, Pac-Man, Doom ‘93, Super Mario 64, Pokemon Go, GTA V, Halo and the original Sim City from 1989. For some reason the list does not feature popular modern titles like Fortnite, MOBA games or cult classics like Witcher 3, Diablo or Ultima Online. Surprisingly enough, Dark Souls won with 12%, followed by Doom ‘93 with 11%, The Legend of Zelda: BotW with 10%, Half Life 2 with 9 % and Minecraft with 8%.

Here are the winners for the rest of the categories:

  • Best Storytelling — Life is Strange: True Colors

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
