Steam polls its users every year to vote for games in various categories. The votes are then tallied to determine the winners as chosen by the community.
The Labour Of Love award recognises games that have been out for a while but are well supported by their developers with new content and events. The contenders included Dota 2, Rust, No Man’s Sky, Apex Legends, but the win ultimately went to Terraria.
The Outstanding Visual Style award acknowledges games that don’t strive for real-world graphical fidelity but instead have a distinctive look and feel that permeates the entire game. The award winner was Forza Horizon 5, with Psychonauts 2, Subnautica: Below Zero, and Little Nightmares 2 considered.
The winner of the Best Soundtrack was Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, which won the award for Best Narrative at the Game Awards.
The final award was the Sit Back And Relax award. The games nominated were chosen for relaxing games that allowed players to unwind. Nominees include Unpacking, Potion Craft, Townscaper, Dorfromantik, with the winner being Farming Simulator 22.
