Final Fantasy 14 has won the Best Games Community Award crown at the Golden Joystick Awards 2021.
Square Enix’s mega-popular MMO just beat out some incredibly tough competition this year to take home the prize. It took on the likes of Capcom’s excellent Monster Hunter Rise, the game that continues to deliver years later in No Man’s Sky, and Bungie’s move into Destiny 2’s new realms.

- fate 2
- Final Fantasy 14 (WINNER)
- monster hunter rise
- Magic: The Gathering Arena
- No Man’s Sky: Origins
Final Fantasy 14 has gone from strength to strength in the last two years only after the astonishing Shadowbringers expansion in 2019. At times the servers have barely been able to cope with the influx of players, and that is without a significant new expansion. Launched more than two years ago.
Square-Enix’s massive MMO Endwalker is headed to expansion, which will launch later this year in December. Poised to bring to a close a story that spanned more than a decade, the stakes for Heroic Scions and a massive player base couldn’t be higher, as all eyes are on Endwalker to provide a show-stopping conclusion. . Its a wonderful story.
“Final Fantasy 14’s climactic expansion feels like it’s heading towards something special,” we wrote last month after shaking hands with Endwalker. “The expansion’s brand new content seems to be brilliantly put together, such that Reaper and Sage will easily exist alongside existing jobs, and meaningful new changes like the trust system upgrade and downscaled damage features to Final Fantasy 14.” Also feel primed to establish more success in the years to come.”
You can play Final Fantasy 14 on PC, PS5 and PS4 right now.
