Last month, we learned that the Steam Awards was a real thing and that the “Steam Selection Committee” would dictate which games get nominated. Well, the polls are in, and even though literally EVERYONE voted for Half-Life 2 in the “game that deserves a sequel” custom category, the category doesn’t feature at all. Cold, Valve, real cold.
Voting opens on 22 December, starting with the “Villain Most In Need Of A Hug” category, with nominees like Borderlands 2, Dead by Daylight, Far Cry 3, Far Cry 4, and Portal 2. Voting in each of the 11 remaining categories commences on the dates specified in this Steam post, which is also where you can check out the full list of nominees.
