Sonic SceneYou Could Move Unleashed Along as Ultimate Game of the Year

For all the negative publicity and reviews Sonic Unleashed received in the mainstream press upon its release, and all the conflict that erupted over it in the community in the days and weeks that followed…wouldn’t it be hilarious if the game was given a glimmer of praise like…I dunno, Game of the Year?

Fans have that opportunity to push that game and other Sonic titles closer to such distinction with Future Publishing’s 27th Annual Golden Joystick Awards.  GamesRadar, CVG, and Edge co-sponsor the awards.

You can go here to vote, and there’s plenty for Sonic fandom to vote on in multiple categories–including, interestingly, re-releases of Sonic the Hedgehog–it’s most likely this is in reference to the recent retro re-releases of the original 1991 classic on XBOX Live, Wii and the like.  But keep your eye on the prize–with your help, Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood, Sonic Unleashed, and Sonic and the Black Knight, could be pared down and in the running for The Ultimate Game of the Year award.

Here are the other categories where Sonic competes:

Family Game of the Year

  • Sonic and the Black Knight
  • Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Sonic Unleashed

Handheld Game of the Year

  • Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood

Nintendo Game of the Year

The Ultimate Game of the Year

So, get your vote on, and TSSZ News will let you know if Sonic makes the cut among the crowd.
