Fallout: New Vegas has won the Best RPG golden joystick award. New Vegas sold over 5 million copies and received somewhat varying reviews, some good, some mediocre. The bugyness of the vanilla game did not deter voters and, somewhat surprisingly, Fallout: New Vegas beat out the other nominees, which were: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, Dragon Age II, Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation, Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, Dungeon Siege III, Pokemon Black/White, Fable 3, and Magicka

Chris Avellone stated on twitter that "it was a bit of a surprise this morning to find, and a welcome one at that. :)"
