Ground Zeroes winning the Gold Prize also confirms the game has sold over half a million copies in Japan (to retailers), which is quite impressive considering the struggling console sales. Either way, congratulations to Kojima Productions for yet another bunch of awards!

In the 20th Anniversary User’s Choice Awards, the following Metal Gear games ended up in the 20 most voted games: Peace Walker, MGS1, MGS3 (which was the one that took the prize), and MGS4. However, only the five most voted games received an award, but it’s still pretty impressive to see four Metal Gear titles in this list of 20 games.
