Valve Announces Second Annual Steam Award Winners

Cuphead with the most wins.

The 2017 Steam Award winners have been announced today after two weeks of voting by users of Valve’s gaming platform.

The Steam Awards are handled a little differently than other year-end award lists, in that every game available to purchase through Steam is eligible for an award. Steam users were able to vote for the nominees in each category, even if the game was released earlier than 2017.

Cuphead won the most out of the list with two awards, while 2016 Steam Award winner for “Just 5 More Minutes” Counter-Strike: Global Offensive returns with the “Haunts My Dreams” award. Sandbox physics game Garry’s Mod is the oldest game to win an award this year, created as a Half-Life 2 mod in 2004 and became a standalone game in 2006.

Check out the full list of winners below, and can find the other nominees and descriptions for each category at the official Steam Awards page.
