It's that time of year again! The Steam Winter Sale has begun, bringing with it plenty of video game deals and the 2021 edition of the Steam Awards.

The Steam Winter Sale needs little introduction for many of us, representing one of those times every year when many Steam games go on sale, and many of us whip out our wallets. Like with the Summer Sale, the Winter Sale also comes with its own set of Stream trading cards that can be collected and turned in for virtual goodies. However, the Steam Winter Sale is also important because it's when Steam holds its annual awards, in which users nominate and vote for games to take home awards in ten different categories.

The awards and their nominees this year are:

The Steam Winter Sale will be held until January 5th at 10 AM Pacific. Meanwhile, voting for the Steam Awards closes on January 3rd at 9 AM Pacific, with the winners announced an hour later.
