Resident Evil 2 has been named as the ultimate game of the year at the Golden Joystick awards.

The remake of the 1998 game takes place in the middle of a zombie apocalypse and was praised by critics and players.

The awards - which took place in London - are significant because they're mainly voted for by the public.

More than 3.5 million votes came in for 19 of the 24 categories in the award ceremony's 37th year.

Gaming legend Yu Suzuki, who spent decades at Sega but has more recently developed mobile games, won the Lifetime Achievement.
