Play to have your say at the Golden Joystick Awards - One Week To Go!

With only a week before the Golden Joystick Awards presented by headline sponsor Green Man Gaming, the Playfire Most Played Award is one of the most hotly contested categories, and can be directly influenced by YOU!

Powered by Playfire, the Most Played Award tallies up the playtime stats of hundreds of thousands of gamers from the Playfire community, and the winner will be the game that gamers have devoted the most hours to playing!

The shortlisted titles are (in alphabetical order):

  • Batman™: Arkham Origins
  • DayZ
  • Football Manager 2014
  • Loadout
  • Path of Exile
  • Rust
  • South Park™: The Stick of Truth™
  • Starbound
  • Thief
“It's great to see a Golden Joystick Award category that is directly influenced and decided on by playing games" said Ben Bateman, Head of Community at Green Man Gaming and Playfire. "We've already seen members of the Playfire community coming together and joining forces to try and rack-up playtime on their favourite titles, and we can't wait to see which game will be the eventual winner at the awards."

If you're not a Playfire member then getting involved is easy. Just sign into Playfire with your GMG account, link your gamertags, and get playing.
The Golden Joysticks Playfire Most Played Award will be decided at midday on Friday 24th October 2014, and will be announced during the ceremony.
