The Oscars, Baftas and Grammys are all prestigious awards for sure; however, as we welcome 2017 (a very happy new year to you all), we also welcome a brand new award, the Steam Awards.
Valve announced the awards back in November during their ‘Black Friday’ sale (which has to be said is a lot better than the current sale). There are twelve categories in total, and Valve have tried to add a bit of originality to their award names. There are no real surprises here, as all of these games have featured in the ‘top sellers’ list on Steam for a large part of the year.
But let’s not delay any further, Ladies and Gentleman (insert drum roll here), here are the inaugural 2017 Steam Awards Winners;
