The director of Best Game Ever commented on the award.

Dark Souls was recently voted “Best Game Ever” at the 2021 Golden Joystick Awards. Hidetaka Miyazaki himself mentioned receiving such an important award.

The developer thanked the developers, publishers and, of course, the players. Miyazaki wrote that it was a great honor to receive such an award, and also promised to continue creating noteworthy publications.

Thanks a lot for this big distinction. I still can’t believe it, but I think it is a great honor for us to be chosen by players from among the outstanding nominees.

I would like to thank From Software, Namco Bandai Entertainment and everyone who worked on the development of the game at the time, worked with us and supported us, but most of all I would like to thank all the players who played and supported the game .. Thank you so much. (…)

We will continue to create interesting and noteworthy games. We hope you will look forward to them. Thanks for the support!

The best game is a great honor. Many players, including many of our readers, disagreed with the victory of Dark Souls. Let me remind you that the game was chosen by the players themselves. So the majority decided, although, of course, it’s all a matter of taste. This award is more of a celebration of a title that has won the hearts of fans around the world.
