Games are being acclaimed left and right; it's finally award season, meaning this year's most well-received titles are raking in the accomplishments and praise. Fans recently voted for the 2017 Golden Joystick Awards, and they've named The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Wii U and Nintendo Switch the ultimate game of the year, among many more distinctions.

Breath of the Wild also took home three other Golden Joystick distinctions, including the Critics' Choice Award, Nintendo Game of the Year, and Best Audio. It makes one wonder if (as the Zelda devs say in the above video) Super Mario Odyssey only being out for a week affected this year's results. Super Mario Odyssey was the runner-up for Nintendo Game of the Year.
