This year's Steam Awards were mostly won by a bunch of old games


Round of applause

Most end-of-year awards focus on highlighting the best of that calendar year. That's not exclusive to games. Grammy's, Oscar's, MTV Music Awards -- they're all shows that are meant to celebrate entertainment that released in the past 12 months.

Not the Steam Awards, though. Those are a free-for-all of some of the most popular Steam games ever, many of which are still the most often played on a daily basis. As a result, only 4 of the 13 winners released in 2017, which, whatever -- it's not like these awards or any awards mean much anyway.

Here are the winners of the 2017 Steam Awards:

  • Choices Matter -- The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
  • Mom's Spaghetti -- PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds
  • Labor of Love -- Warframe
  • Suspension of Disbelief -- Rocket League
  • The World Is Grim Enough Let's Just All Get Along -- Stardew Valley
  • No Apologies -- The Witcher: Enhanced Edition
  • Defies Description -- Garry's Mod
  • Cry Havoc and Let Slip the Dogs of War -- Just Cause 3
  • Haunts My Dreams -- Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
  • Soul of Vitruvius -- Rise of the Tomb Raider
  • Whoooaaaaaaa, Dude! 2.0 -- The Evil Within 2
  • Best Soundtrack -- Cuphead
  • Even Better Than I Expected -- Cuphead
