The first Steam Awards demonstrated PC avid gamers have lengthy recollections and determined opinions.


Valve has introduced the winners of its community-voted Steam Awards.

End of 12 months award lists are typically dominated by the most recent and biggest, as everybody suffers amnesia past the present hype cycle, however the Steam neighborhood proved to be manufactured from sterner stuff, resolutely choosing timeless favourites for many of the eclectic classes.

The awards weren’t restricted by 12 months of launch, and the character of the classes most likely skewed them in direction of a greater variety of releases than ordinary, however it’s nonetheless actually fascinating to see how few 2016 releases made the nominees and winners.

DOOM and Dark Souls three launched in 2016, and I suppose we might rely Skyrim because it re-released this 12 months. But GTA 5, which took two gongs, hit PC in 2015 and first launched in 2013. Euro Truck Simulator 2, the opposite twin winner, launched in 2013.

Left four Dead 2 launched in 2009, Portal 2 got here out in 2011, Counter-strike: Global offensive launched in 2012, and even the newest full season of The Walking Dead wrapped up in 2014. Goat Simulator dropped in 2014, too.
