Steam Winter Sale 2023 is live, along with The Steam Awards voting

By - | Views: 53,151

It is that time again! Valve launched the Steam Winter Sale 2023 and The Steam Awards are also open for voting for your favourite titles now too.

Look, you know the drill by now, there's no need for some big long introduction right? You'll say you won't be buying any more, because you've already got 401 games you've yet to finish. Let's skip over the lies, you'll end up buying something else, just like I will already have — I finally caved and got NieR:Automata at 60% off (highest Steam discount so far).

Some quick picks:

Dead by Daylight - 65% off - steam deck verified Deck Verified / ProtonDB Silver

Cyberpunk 2077 - 50% off - steam deck verified Deck Verified / ProtonDB Gold

God of War - 50% off - steam deck verified Deck Verified / ProtonDB Gold

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice - GOTY Edition - 50% off - steam deck verified Deck Verified / ProtonDB Platinum

Inscryption - 50% off - steam deck playable Deck Playable / Native Linux

Valheim - 40% off - steam deck verified Deck Verified / Native Linux

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered - 40% off - steam deck verified Deck Verified / ProtonDB Gold

Cassette Beasts - 25% off - steam deck verified Deck Verified / Native Linux

Baldur's Gate 3 - 10% off, first ever sale - steam deck verified Deck Verified / ProtonDB Gold

Looking over the Steam Awards, I'm genuinely surprised to see that the "Most Innovative Gameplay Award" category…has Starfield in the runnings. Now, I'm not one to jump on games but — most innovative, Starfield, really? What crazy gamers thought it should be there? Anyway, voting in each category unlocks various special Steam Chat Stickers for you.

Check out the sale on Steam and the Steam Awards here.

The Steam Winter Sale 2023 runs until January 4th, 6PM UTC. What will you be picking up?

Finally, a (miniscule 10%) discount on BG3! Meaning, I can feel no shame making this my slightly-belated birthday gift to myself! Once more into Faerûn I go, it seems! As one might surmise by my avatar, I'm a huge fan of the Forgotten Realms in general. I used to spend hours reading the Candlekeep forums.

I also picked up another copy of Mass Effect Legendary Edition for $5.99. (I already own the originals on console.) That is a fantastic deal, if you can put up with Origin/EA launcher shenanigans (*cough* which you can get around *cough*).

I also picked up Crystal Project, which had been languishing in my wishlist for years. There's only so many JRPGs one can play at once, after all.

Oh boy, four new games for the library, 1.5€ each. Big, big spender!

Liam, how much does Steam pay you to fuel my game purchase addiction?

Looks like there's only three Linux games in the whole lineup of Steam Awards candidates. None of them are in the 'Best on Deck' category. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Bleh. Oh well.

Clearly the Todd's Loading Screen Simulator is number one in 'innovative gameplay' category.
Must have been a sad year for gaming considering the finalists... .
Should I have overloocked a hidden gem in one of the categorys one may graciously accept my humble apology for my ignorance.

Quoting: redneckdrowMass Effect Legendary Edition

Picked it up as well. I never played the series and have managed to exist this long knowing nothing about the plot. I'm intending to stream/dock it from the Deck onto the TV and play with my partner in the evenings starting next year (I hope)

Totally expect Baldurs Gate 3 to win yet another game of the year award.

Excited sigh, I hope I find more Steam Deck PvP stuff to play. Golf with Friends was pretty fun, but I thirst for more LAN games to play in the living room on Decks.

I wasn't especially enthused about voting in The Steam Awards - only one of my nominees got through (Pizza Tower, for Best OST), so seeing mis-nominations such as the one for Most Innovative Gameplay rankles quite a bit.

That said, there are a few things that I'll be picking up.

Brotato (Steam, £2.99)
Gimmick! Special Edition (Steam, £7.79)
Gravity Circuit (Fanatical, £8.85)

I noticed that a few of the higher-priced games that I'm waiting for bigger discounts on were all cheaper at Fanatical this time around, so I'll be keeping a closer eye on that going forward.
