If you’ve noticed the fantastic community support from the team behind Final Fantasy XIV, then you’re not alone, as FFXIV wins Best Community Support at the Golden Joystick Awards. The news of the award was tweeted directly from the official Final Fantasy XIV. Twitter. The victory marks the second year in a row that Final Fantasy XIV has won this award.
Shortly after the announcement, the game’s director and producer, Naoki Yoshida, took to Twitter to issue a Special thanks to all the Warriors of Light who made this award possible. In it, he stated that “this award is possibly the most proud of me as someone managing a great MMORPG title.”
As mentioned, this is the second year that FFXIV has taken home the Golden Joystick for Best Gaming Community, having won this award, along with the Still Playing award in 2021. While the Still Playing category (for which FFXIV was nominated again) eluded the game. This year, the back-to-back wins show that the Final Fantasy XIV community is still one of the best.

FFXIV: Endwalker was nominated for Best Game Expansion, but lost to Cuphead: The Delicious Last Course. Still, three nominations and one win isn’t bad for a game entering its 10th year of continuous operation (13 if you count the disastrous original launch).
Overall, it’s easy to see why the Final Fantasy XIV community continues to win awards. The game is almost notorious for how welcoming and positive its player base is. And the efforts of the developers to preserve and maintain that atmosphere help. From story beats that preach forgiveness and second chances to design and gameplay decisions that promote positive attitudes and support, FFXIV has plenty of special elements that help make the community one of the best in all of gaming. And the Golden Joysticks agree!
