Back during the Steam Fall Sale in November, Valve announced that it would running it's first-ever end of year awards. Originally only 8 categories were announced, and the community were given complete control over who would make the final nominations list. Valve also set no restriction as to when the games nominated were originally released, which gave way to an interesting and almost unpredictable set or nominee lists for each category.
Skip forward to the end of December, and the community was asked to vote on each category during the Winter Sale, with 4 additional fan-categories being added to the roster. The results were tallied, and the winners were announced; we've compiled this into a list for you below.
