The Steam Awards Is Letting The Community Pick The Winners
Instead of arguing with your friends over what the best games of 2016 are let the Steam community decide for you.
During the Steam Autumn Sale, happening now. Steam users can head to the store page for any game. Not just titles released in 2016 and nominate it for one of nine awards.
- – The “Test of Time” Award
- – The “I’m Not Crying, There’s Something In My Eye” Award
- – The “Just 5 More Minutes” Award
- – The “Whoooaaaaaaa, dude!” Award
- – The “Villain Most In Need Of A Hug” Award
- – The “Game Within A Game” Award
- – The “I Thought This Game Was Cool Before It Won An Award” Award
- – The “Best Use Of A Farm Animal” Award
- – The “We Didn’t Think Of Everything” Award
The last one is basically a “make your own category” section. Valve plans to tally up all of those and, via some unknowable metric outside the bounds of space and time (but probably “counting”), create a final category.
You can earn and level up a special badge for nominating/reviewing games, if you’re into Steam badges. So, what are you gonna nominate? No trolls please.
