The people at Activision, the publishers of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, were very happy on Thursday night. At the annual British Golden Joystick Awards, CoD4 scooped the Nuts All-Nighter Award, ESA PC Game of the Year, GamesRadar.com Online Game of the Year and Virgin Media Ultimate Game of the Year.

Unlike the other big British game awards, the Baftas, the Golden Joysticks winners are chosen by the public, not experts, and this year 850,000 people voted, according to the BBC.

David Tyler, marketing director at Activision, said:

"We’re really honored to receive this award. We’d like to thank everyone involved, especially the development team, Infinity Ward."

"The Golden Joysticks’ importance has grown year on year and it has helped raise the profile of the games industry as a whole."

Unlike previous editions of the game, which had been placed in World War II, CoD4 has a contemporary setting.

One of the year’s biggest games, Grand Theft Auto IV, didn’t go home empty handed, either. It claimed the BBC 1Xtra Soundtrack of the Year and Xbox Game of the Year awards, while developers Rockstar won CVG’s Developer of the Year award. That means the franchise has won an award for seven years in a row.

Among other awards, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock walked away with The Sun’s Family Game of the Year and Handheld Game of the Year went to Nintendo‘s Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. The Grandmaster Flash Award for web-based flash game was taken by Stickman Madness and the Mobile Game Pitch was awarded to Finders Keepers and developer Tobias Rowe.
