“SO excited to be back hosting the glittering Golden Joystick Awards this year with one of my best buds, Troy Baker. The awards recognize over 20 incredible games and creators who have thrilled and entertained us this year, voted for by you! Tune in on November 22nd to find out if your favourite will pick up a coveted Golden Joystick!”
Troy Baker, actor and show host said:
“News flash – Laura Bailey and I are hosting the iconic Golden Joystick Awards this year. The GJA’s recognise the creators and performers who have made this year yet another stellar year in gaming. From indie devs to triple AAAs we will be awarding them all on November 22nd. Don’t miss it!”
It will be interesting to see who will win this year. It’s been a fascinating year for games. There have been highs and lows. With Baker and Bailey hopefully, the awards will be filled with levity and humour. After all, they are two of the best in the business right now with regard to acting in gaming.
