“Nier: Automata” Nominated At Golden Joystick Awards 2017!

At the 35th Golden Joystick Awards, the surprise hit action-RPG, Nier: Automata  from Platinum Games is nominated for 3 out of the 21 awards that are being given out.

Nier: Automata – Award Nomination!

The Golden Joystick Awards allows gamers to celebrate the games that have meant the most to them over the last year. With categories ranging from ‘Best Storytelling’ to ‘Ultimate Game of the Year’ – and even ‘Most Wanted’, which highlights the games you’re looking forward to the most.

The awards the Square Enix title is currently nominated for are:

  • Studio of the Year
  • PlayStation Game of the Year
  • Best Story Telling

Personally, I think Nier: Automata  should also be nominated for “Best Audio“, as the game boasts one the best original soundtracks much like its predecessor, Nier Gestalt / Replicant.

There are different awards being handed out that encompasses various facets of gaming such as Genres, Platforms, Studios, and even Podcasts/Streams.

Other notable titles that have been nominated to receive prizes include:

Gamers can pitch in their favorite title and cast votes right now as voting is still live up until November 3, and the winners will be announced on November 17.

In another award ceremony, Nier: Automata  nabbed an Award for Excellence” at the Japan Game Awards from TGS 2017. Furthermore, the Platinum Games title just recently exceeded 2 million in sales!

Nier: Automata  is currently available on PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam.

    Well my votes are in. Nier, Nioh and ESO, with some uncharted.

    It’s a complete travesty this list does not include Divinity Original Sin 2 btw. BOOOO

    I finally played Uncharted 4 on my new 4K HDR big screen with the PS4 Pro. The game looks absolutely amazing, and considering it came out before PS4 even supported HDR it’s amazing just how good it is. Still, I think Nier: Automata is a better game overall (and for these awards I think U4 would have been in last year anyway).

    Seriously, though, how could the list include D2? The game came out 2 weeks ago. Wouldn’t it be a 2018 contender instead?

    The Uncharted ones are for the Stand Alone Chloe DLC – and yes I agree the graphics are just really amazing. I’m really looking forward to the Last of Us 2 just because I know it will have that awesome graphical feel D:

    The list includes Destiny 2 which came out 9 days before Divinity Original Sin 2. It also includes Wolfenstein II that isn’t even out (Comes out Oct 27th)

    I’m sure they’ll add it next year but it’s kinda dumb to have a nominee for something that isn’t even out and ignore the game that is a current homerun.

    Wolfenstein 2 is on the list? That’s f#cked up. :doh:

    Still, can’t be worse than the list of greatest games where every single game had a Japanese publisher.

    Mhm I don’t know, those were Japanese-focused for a Japanese audience by a Japanese magazine, there wasn’t even a translation and Japanese players do buy and play those games more like others.

    It’s akin to a list of Best movies for a Hindi Magazine out of Bollywood being full of indian flicks – just predictable since most international movies are not translated or televised in the country.
