At the end of November, we were asked as fans to vote on the games we think deserve an award(s). And we delivered. Our votes we racked up for a variety of categories, with a heap of games getting votes. Even the developers themselves put blog post announcements on Steam, rallying their troops to vote for specific games in specific categories, all within reason of course.

Throughout the voting period, gamers could vote on the following categories:

  • Game of the Year
  • VR Game of the Year
  • Labor of love
  • Better with friends
  • Outstanding visual style
  • Most innovative gameplay
  • Best game you suck at
  • Best soundtrack
  • Outstanding story-rich game
  • Sit back and relax

The voting process went on for a week, including in December. Now that the dust has settled, Valve has announced the Steam Award winners for 2021.
