What with the illustrious 30th Golden Joystick Awards happening later today, hosted by Ed Byrne. As GamingBolt isn’t actually a gigantic, throbbing hivemind and in fact a collection of very real individuals, we thought it’d be good to clamour together our collective brain sludge to try and decipher which games we all  feel are the best and most deserving of a Golden Joystick. Best Shooter

  • Battlefield 3
  • Binary Domain
  • Modern Warfare 3
  • Gears of War 3
  • Ghost Recon: Future Soldier
  • Halo Anniversary
  • Max Payne 3
  • Rage
  • Resistance 3
  • Spec Ops: The Line
  • Starhawk
  • Syndicate
  • Darkness II
  • Tribes Ascend.

Winner: Max Payne 3

Though it was a long time coming since Remedy released Max Payne 2 in 2003, Rockstar’s take on the Noire inspired ramblings of the ever tortured Max Payne managed to up the production values of the Remedy classics whilst maintaining the series’ trademark narrative flourishes. Featuring snappy dialogue, memorable set-pieces and the glorious return of the surprisingly relevant reliance on bullet time, Max Payne 3 is arguably the greatest action game of the past few years.
