Steam Awards 2017 Winners

The winners of the 2017 Steam Awards were just released and some old faces can be seen winning the awards.

For those unaware, the Steam Awards are not restricted to games released in 2017. Technically, old games such as The Witcher III: Wild Hunt, Grand Theft Auto V and Team Fortress 2 are still eligible to be voted. The Award Nominees were also voted in by users, so don’t blame Valve for including old games as a part of the nominees.

Steam’s award names and description are kind of out of the box. At first glance, you won’t understand what the game award is really for. Luckily, Steam provided us a description of the awards.
