It has been a thriving year for the gaming community amid the pandemic. Aside from their Winter Sale, now is the time for users to cast their votes on the best games that the Steam has offered this year.
Maybe it was its immersive gameplay or gripping story, well-crafted characters, immaculate design, or addictive multiplayer. Whatever the reason, 2020's #SteamAwards Game of the Year is an instant classic.

Let’s look at some of the notable games this year that made it through the 2020 Steam Awards and see if there are other games that needs to be on our radar.
This Former PlayStation Exclusive Gets Nominated
The Last Of Us Part 2 will not be included in these awards since they already dominated the recent 2020 Game Awards and they don’t have a PC port yet. However, Horizon Zero Dawn, the critically acclaimed title from Guerilla gets a nomination for this year for Outstanding Story-Rich Game.
We are honoured that Horizon Zero Dawn™ Complete Edition for PC has been nominated for the #SteamAwards as Outstanding Story-Rich Game!
Congrats to all nominees and thank you for all your support! 🏹💙
P.S. You can also find us in the Steam Winter Sale this week! https://t.co/ogosWietn5

Despite the bugs and setbacks that they had with optimizing the PC version, they gave players an amazing storyline and immersive experience in this complete edition that includes The Frozen Wilds Expansion.
Red Dead Redemption 2 Still Recognized For A 2018 Game
It also looks like Horizon Zero Dawn will also face tough competition for the Outstanding Story-Rich Game category as this title from Rockstar Games is still well received from the community.
In fact, Red Dead Redemption 2 is also nominated for Game of The Year despite being a 2 year old game and it’s currently competing with the other nominees such as Death Stranding, Doom Eternal, Fall Guys, and Hades.
Will Doom Eternal Finally Snag An Award?
In the last Game Awards, Doom Eternal didn’t get any award despite the nominations that it went through including Game of The Year and it was even beaten in one category by Hades in Best Action Game.
However, it may have a fighting chance in Steam’s Best Soundtrack category since Hades isn’t nominated in that area but it won’t be easy either. Doom Eternal needs to beat Halo, Helltaker, Need For Speed Heat and Persona 4 Golden.
Feel free to cast your votes in the 2020 Steam Awards from December 22 to January 3 and see if your favorite game makes it.
