Winners of The Steam Awards 2020 have been revealed. There were a total of ten awards that were given to nine different games, but only one game won two awards. The voting was done exclusively by fans. The games eligible for nomination were released on Steam from November 2019 to November 2020. That’s why Red Dead Redemption 2 was nominated for several awards while Cyberpunk 2077 wasn’t.

GOTY nominations were Death Stranding, Fall Guys, Doom Eternal, and Hades, whereas, Outstanding Story-Rich Game nominations were Detroit: Become Human, Mafia Definitive Edition, Metro Exodus, and Horizon Zero Dawn.

Valve’s own game, Half-Life: Alyx won the VR Game of the Year Award, and CS: GO won the Labor of Love Award. Doom Eternal finally got the recognition it deserves by winning the Best Soundtrack Award.
