By - | Views: 22,447

Get your wallets ready and your votes as two big events are happening and live now on Steam with both the Steam Autumn Sale and the 2020 Steam Award Nominations.

Firstly, let's talk about the Steam Awards. This is the fifth annual event, where users all across Steam can vote for their favourite games across different categories. The final voting will take place in December, with nominations running until December 1 at 5PM UTC.

The categories for this year are:

  • Game of the Year 
  • VR Game Of The Year
  • Labour Of Love 
  • Better With Friends 
  • Outstanding Visual Style 
  • Most Innovative Gameplay
  • Best Game You Suck At
  • Best Soundtrack
  • Outstanding Story-rich Game
  • Sit Back And Relax

The only category that doesn't have a release date for games attached is the Labor of Love, all others need to have been released after the 2019 Autumn Sale. You can go ahead and nominate titles over here. Oh and yes, it does include a nice Steam Profile Badge too.

Valve say the winners will be announced on January 3 at 6PM UTC.

As for the Steam Autumn Sale, you know the drill by now. Thousands of games just got super cheap, so be sure to look through your Steam Wishlist to see if you can pick something up you've been waiting on. As for some suggestions, here's a few semi-recent releases going cheap you can't miss out on:

Valve also expanded their Points Shop with a bunch of Autumn Sale themed items. If you love customizing your profile there's some nice animated background artwork and avatar frames.

The whole sale runs through until December 1 at 6PM UTC.

Quoting: AwesamLinuxDon't forget to nominate games for the Steam Awards, especially if they had a good Linux version! . A good opportunity to give some exposure to games that may have been overlooked,

Personally though I have not actually played that many games this year that apply to be nominated. Currently, I have picked the following:


Still thinking about the other categories

Both Metro redux games are on sale for 3.99 each. I think I might pick them up along with Prey.

For some reason I'm really in the mood for some sci-fi shooters (I'm not normally a FPS person), but for less than the cost of a lunch meal, it's worth a gamble
