The Steam Awards Nominees for 2021 Are Now Available

Here are your nominees for The Steam Awards 2021. Voting will open up on December 22nd at 10:00 AM PST and run through January 3rd at 9:00 AM PST.

The seven categories offer a wide variety of choices and selections. With titles that include recent big-budget releases, indie darlings, and also some pretty confusing selections (Battlefield, what are you doing here?!), The Steam Awards appears to offer something for everybody.

The Steam Awards is also a pretty big reminder that I need to play a lot of these games as well. Unpacking and Twelve Minutes are just staring at me on Xbox Game Pass. Inscryption is seeing a lot of love, too. That might be enough for me to at least check it out.

I’m long overdue to update my thoughts on Halo Infinite multiplayer (I still very much like it!) and I loved just about every second of Forza Horizon 5.
