Gamers all around the world vote on the Golden Joystick award winners, and with the latest event having just recently taken place on November 16, we now know what the gaming public has selected as the absolute best games of 2019.

As always, the Golden Joystick Awards recognize games in a variety of categories. A number of different games won awards this year, though there were two titles that won multiple awards. The PS4-exclusive Days Gone won two awards at the Golden Joystick Awards, as did Capcom's Resident Evil 2. In fact, Resident Evil 2 enjoys the distinction of taking away the top prize at the Golden Joystick Awards 2019, being named the Ultimate Game of the Year by voters.

With Resident Evil 2 being the top-rated game of 2019, it's no surprise to see it take away the top prize. The praise given to Days Gone may be a bit surprising to some players, however, as that game received mixed reviews at the time of its release.

In the meantime, the Golden Joystick Awards 2019 have been getting some attention for more reasons than just the awards it's dished out. The event is also notable for host Danny Wallace roasting Activision-Blizzard over the ongoing China controversy.

Looking ahead, there will be a ton of end-year awards given out for video games in December and January, with one of the biggest events being the upcoming Game Awards 2019. The Game Awards is also known for its world premieres, so video game fans will want to tune in for that as well.
