It’s taken 200 days, over 4000 games and 1.54 million votes, with Mass Effect 2, Plants vs. Zombies and the Call of Duty franchise all emerging triumphant with two honours apiece, as the winners of the 28th Annual Golden Joystick Awards were announced today in London.

The most coveted accolade for “Ultimate Game of the Year” at the world’s most popular gaming awards, was presented to Electronic Arts for Mass Effect 2, which also scooped “RPG of the Year.”

Plants vs. Zombies from Popcap Games also netted two Golden Joysticks, winning “Download Game of the Year” and “Strategy Game of the Year.” Activision’s seemingly unstoppable Call of Duty franchise, continued its annual winning streak with 2010’s third double, bagging “Shooter of the Year” for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and “One to Watch” for the forthcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops – released next month.
