Valve has announced the winners for its annual community-voted Steam Awards. As was kind of expected, the Game of the Year went to Resident Evil Village. Other category awards went to games like Deathloop, Forza Horizon 5, and even Cyberpunk 2077.
As a side note, the Steam Awards doesn’t include games that were released just in the 2021 calendar year. As would be expected, the voting swings more towards recently released titles, but older games are also eligible for rewards. The Labor of Love award, as an example, gives praise for continued support of a game. This year’s winner was Terraria, which was first released in 2011.
More recent titles make up a majority of the winners though. You can check out the full list of Steam Award winners below.
