Forza 4: Best of Class at GJAs!
To fans of the racing genre, it might not come as a complete surprise that Forza 4 has been awarded best racer of the year at this year’s HMV Golden Joystick Awards.
The Golden Joysticks are a popular award ceremony, and the racer beat off tough opposition from EA’s Need for Speed – The Run, which uses the Frostbite 2 engine to great effect, and Eat Sleep Play’s Twisted Metal. More than four million votes were cast at this year’s GJAs leaving the Xbox exclusive title Forza 4 as onf of the champions.
Forza 4 has had a very successful year, especially when you take into consideration the popularity of its arcade style spin-off, Forza 4 – Horizon, and the seemingly endless DLC injections that the original title has received throughout the year.
The participation at this years Golden Joystick Awards has been really quite staggering. The total of four million votes smashes the previous record by more than double. Undoubtedly the organisers are pleased, and it is really great to see so much light being shed on the industry in general.
