Golden Joystick Awards

Oblivion Screenshot (2006)More than half a million gamers voted for this year's Golden Joystick Awards, the bees knees of games software awards in the UK. Half a million is a convincingly large electorate. Bethesda Softworks' role-playing fantasy game Elder Scroll IV: Oblivion grabbed three awards, including the top prize: Ultimate Game of the Year. If you need to ask why I'm including this item as arts news, you need to wake up to the fact that some of our best contemporary artists are working with pixels, not paintbrushes. Don't believe me? Look at the above landscape and check out its misty aerial perspective. Click OBLIVION to view a gallery of breathtaking screenshots. For a list of winners, click the title link.
