Valve’s first ever Steam Awards runs from December 22 to January 2. The winners, which were voted on by users, were announced yesterday. Rather than looking at 2016’s best games, the Steam Awards encompasses games from the last several years.

The winners of the Steam Awards were picked by the community, but it’s still strange to see some of Valve’s own games on there. What I find even stranger is that most of these aren’t new releases, but I suppose this is a way to highlight some of the better titles that Steam has to offer. Even so, there isn’t much on this list that stands out, with most being generic picks and some seeming shoehorned in with a silly category. At least the category names are amusing.
