31st October 2006 - Europe's leading video games chain, GAME, was honoured to win the prestigious 'Retailer of the Year' category at this year's Golden Joystick Awards on Friday 27th October 2006. The company was presented with the award in London during the ceremony and gala dinner.
The only awards to be voted for by UK gamers, GAME was among 195 other finalists, competing for 17 different awards at the event. A record number of over half a million votes were cast this year to reward and recognise the best in the industry by the people who matter - consumers themselves.

"Receiving such high profile acknowledgement - particularly now, in the run-up to Christmas when everyone at GAME is working flat out to serve customers - is a huge boost and we're all delighted."
"We'd like to thank everyone who voted for us and the award sponsors, and also congratulate all the other winners and participants."
