Not too long ago we told all you geeks about The Steam Awards. Well, after over 15 million(!) votes on the nominations, results are in. Voting begins December 22nd, all you have to do is head on over to Steam and click. Here is how it works: Each category will only be open for voting for 24 hours before moving onto the next category, so be sure to check in every day to vote! All four write-in categories will be voted on simultaneously on December 30th.
The list of categories is both hilarious and important, especially if you’re a gamer. Here they are in the order they open:
- December 22nd 10 AM PST
The “Villain Most In Need Of A Hug” Award
- December 23rd 10 AM PST
The “I Thought This Game Was Cool Before It Won An Award” Award
- December 24th 10 AM PST
The “Test of Time” Award
- December 25th 10 AM PST
The “Just 5 More Minutes” Award
- December 26th 10 AM PST
The “Whoooaaaaaaa, dude!” Award
- December 27th 10 AM PST
The “Game Within A Game Award” Award
- December 28th 10 AM PST
The “I’m Not Crying, There’s Something In My Eye” Award
- December 29th 10 AM PST
The “Best Use Of A Farm Animal” Award
Then there are the write-in votes. According to Steam the response for write-ins was so overwhelming that they had to create four different awards for them. The list of games is too large to just copy onto here, but it includes not only AAA games, but indie titles as well. Steam is a marketplace teeming with gaming options, and the community is equally diverse. It’ll be interesting to see how this all turns out.
