Valve announces winners of first ever Steam Awards

GTA V and Euro Truck Simulator 2 among the winners.

Valve has revealed the results of the inaugural Steam Awards (here were the nominees), and while the categories are unusual, you won't be surprised by any of the winners, as they've been firm fixtures of the Top Sellers list for quite some time. I presumed there would be deeper Winter Sale discounts accompanying the winning games, but instead each one will receive "eternal fame as winner of the first ever Steam Awards", oh and a big virtual trophy on their Store page telling you as much.

Anyhoo, without further ado, here are the games Steam users reckoned deserving of the dozen awards:

  • "Villain Most In Need Of A Hug" - Portal 2
  • "I Thought This Game Was Cool Before It Won An Award" - Euro Truck Simulator 2
  • "Test of Time" - The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
  • "Just 5 More Minutes" - Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
  • "Whoooaaaaaaa, dude!" - Grand Theft Auto V
  • "Game Within A Game" - Grand Theft Auto V
  • "I'm Not Crying, There's Something In My Eye" - The Walking Dead
  • "Best Use Of A Farm Animal" - Goat Simulator
  • "Boom Boom" - Doom
  • "Love/Hate Relationship" - Dark Souls III
  • "Sit Back and Relax" - Euro Truck Simulator 2
  • "Better With Friends" - Left 4 Dead 2
