The Steam Awards 2021 Winners:Game of the Year – Resident Evil Village
VR Game of the Year – Cooking Simulator VRMaybe it was its immersive gameplay, or its gripping story… its well-crafted characters, immaculate design, or addictive multiplayer. Whatever the reason, the winner of this year’s Game of the Year Award is an instant classic.
Labor of Love – TerrariaThe VR Game of the Year isn’t merely masquerading as regular reality. This game improves on reality, taking advantage of the medium of VR and pushing the boundaries of the virtual realm.
Better With Friends – It Takes TwoThis game has been out for a while. The team is well past the debut of their creative baby, but being the good parents they are, these devs continue to nurture and support their creation. This game, to this day, is still getting new content after all these years.
Outstanding Visual Style – Forza Horizon 5There are some games out there that just aren’t the same when you play by yourself. Maybe you need to have a friend to watch your back. Maybe you need to have a friend that you can stab in their back. Either way, fun is awaiting those who gather friends together play this game.
Most Innovative Gameplay – DeathloopVisual style doesn’t aspire to real-world graphical fidelity (though a noble goal in itself)… it describes a distinctive look and feel that suffuses an entire game.
Best Game You Suck At – Nioh 2 – The Complete EditionThe designers of this game are at the front lines of creative experimentation, bringing a fresh perspective and brain-breaking surprises. This game delighted, inspired and entertained with newness never played before.
Best Soundtrack – Marvel’s Guardians of the GalaxyThis is the game that rewards persistence, and is not for the faint of heart. It’s the toughest game we’ve ever loved.
Outstanding Story-Rich Game – Cyberpunk 2077This unsung hero deserves to be recognized for its outstanding musical score. It’s the OST with the MOST!
Sit Back and Relax – Farming Simulator 22Some days, only a narrative-heavy game will hit the spot, and this one packs a wallop. It’s as gripping as any soap opera, and as well-tuned as a prestige-TV screenplay. Bravissimo — for making us feel things!
