They were missing: Steam had not yet released their 2021 Steam Awards, the selection of winners for the best video games of the year in the different categories available. After announcing the list of nominees, the PC community has spoken out by choosing the outstanding titles of a 2021 that we have already left behind.

The main protagonist has been Resident Evil Village, which has won the award for best game of the year. Capcom’s title has made an appearance on numerous 2021 highlights lists, so the choice is not surprising, although it does prevail over other big names. The rest of the categories follow the custom of the Valve platform, with very curious prizes and others that could perfectly be included in other galas in the future.

The appearance of Cyberpunk 2077 as the winner is undoubtedly surprising. excellent game rich in stories, a very specific award but one that rewards CD Projekt’s efforts in recent months, or at least a slightly better performance on PC compared to the console versions. Here is the complete list of winners, although you can also check it on the Steam page.
