Steam Awards: Red Dead Redemption 2 Wins Game of The Year 2020

Steam has finally initiated its own award event, where the result depends entirely on players. Steam Awards is a unique game award that allows players to vote their favourite games for multiple categories and the winners are chosen based on highest vote regardless of critics reviews and rating.

 In Valve’s latest event, Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2 grabbed two awards for the Game of The Year and Outstanding Story-Rich Game categories.

Steam Awards winners are not at all surprising as it is democratic. Players can vote their favourite game which was released on Steam during that award period. Allowing platform’s users to choose the Steam Awards winner rather than critics is a good indication.

Despite being released in 2019, Red Dead Redemption 2 wins the Game of the Year award defeating titles like Death Stranding, Fall Guys, Doom Eternal and Hades.

All winners for 10 Steam Awards categories were announced, Half-Life: Alyx won VR Game of the Year, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive took the prize for being a Labor of Love. Death Stranding as the Most Innovative Game of 2020, and Doom Eternal took the Best Soundtrack award.
