Valve has officially announced its winners for the 2021 Steam Awards.

Sitting in the premier category is the eighth mainline installment of Capcom’s best-selling survival horror franchise, Resident Evil Village, which beat out the likes of Cyberpunk 2077 and Forza Horizon 5 for the coveted Game of the Year award. Those titles still managed to score awards of their own, however, with Cyberpunk 2077 and Forza Horizon 5 having won in the Outstanding Story-Rich Game and Outstanding Visual Style categories, respectively.

A full list of the 2021 Steam Awards winners, which were voted in by the Steam community:

  • Game of the Year: Resident Evil Village
  • VR Game of the Year: Cooking Simulator VR
  • Labor of Love: Terraria
  • Better with Friends: It Takes Two
  • Outstanding Visual Style: Forza Horizon 5
  • Most Innovative Gameplay: Deathloop
  • Best Game You Suck At: Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition
  • Best Soundtrack: Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy
  • Outstanding Story-Rich Game: Cyberpunk 2077

A deluxe version of Resident Evil Village that includes Resident Evil Re:Verse and the Resident Evil Village – Trauma Pack (a DLC package that includes classic items such as the Samurai Edge handgun) is currently available for $42.12 as part of the Steam Winter Sale. Valve’s sales event will end on Wednesday.
