Valve has finally announced the winners of the Steam Awards 2020. The winners of the contest held in 10 different categories were determined by the votes of Steam users. When we take a look at the awards, we see that there are not many surprises.
The most curious part of the 2020 Steam Awards was of course the Game of the Year (GOTY) category. This year's nominations were Red Dead Redemption 2, Hades, Doom Eternal, Fall Guys, and Death Stranding. RDR 2 stood out from all these productions and won the Game of the Year award. Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice won the same prize last year.
Games released after November can be nominated for the Steam Awards. Therefore, RDR 2, which came to Steam in December 2019, could be nominated for the 2020 awards. On the other hand, Cyberpunk 2077, which was released in December 2020, could not be included in the list, it will have to wait for 2021.
Due to the Steam winter sales, many of the games in the list below currently have huge discounts. Now is a good time to buy. Winter discounts will end on January 5.
