Game of The Year award for 2018 :
Moving on, let’s talk about Game of the Year awards. First of all, the Game of the Year is an annual award. It is given to the most deserving title that has been voted for by the people. Having said that, at the Golden Joystick Awards 2018, the Game of the Year was awarded to Fortnite, which came as a shocker to Red Dead Redemption 2 fans, but it was all said and done, and the majority had voted for Fortnite to receive the award. Nonetheless, Red Dead Redemption 2 did secure the second place and also won the Critics’ Choice Award. In Red Dead Redemption 2’s defense, the game has been released recently, and a lot of people didn’t get the opportunity of experiencing it and is only available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 right now. On the other hand, Fortnite receives a lot of push from influential streamers such as Ninja and many others.
