You all voted late last year, and now the Steam Awards are here. With unique award categories such as “Most Fun with a Machine” and typical ones like “Game of the Year,” it’s a nice mix between the ordinary and atypical. There’s big names like Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Monster Hunter: World, and indie titles like Factorio and Overcooked 2.

This year, Valve did it a little differently. Instead of revealing the winners on a webpage, they streamed it live on Steam.tv for the first time ever. Companies accepted their awards with pre-recorded video. Check out the winners below, or the award’s official webpage.

I love to write, and I love to game. So, I've combined those two hobbies into one! Some of my favorite games include Fire Emblem, Halo, The Elder Scrolls, and World of Warcraft. Sometimes I like to read the occasional fantasy novel, too!
