Remember Steam Awards? Its Nominees Have Been Revealed

During the Steam Autumn Sale last month, Valve introduced Steam Awards. Users had the option of nominating a single game across eight different categories, with a ninth category where the public could name its own award.

Having tallied up all the votes, Valve today revealed the final list of nominees for the Steam Awards. Voting officially begins on December 22, on which the developer is expected to commence its annual Steam Winter Sale.

However, note that you won’t be able to vote for them all from day-one. Every day, Valve will take votes a single category. This will open up each category for a maximum of 24 hours before moving on to the next category.

The final four categories, created by the community, will be eligible for voting simultaneously on December 30. The winners will be announced on New Year’s Eve.
