If you ever thought that game nominations are cool, then you definitely must check out Steam’s game nomination event. This is the first time the popular game-selling platform is hosting such an event, as it coincides with Steam’s Autumn Sales.
So, what’s up with Steam Nominations and how can you cast a vote? Well, no such event is complete without awards and categories. Wanting to stress out that this is not an official, red-carpet event, Steam’s staff put their thinking caps on and came up with some of the funniest awards for your favorite games.
Now, without further ado, here are the categories, and later on, we will show you how you can cast your vote.
- “Test of Time” Award
Some games are good, some games are bad, but there are some of the who are so good, that you can play them times and times again without getting bored. Each time you play such a game, you’ll most definitely discover something new and refreshing.
- “I’m Not Crying, There’s Something in My Eye” Award
For all those intense moments experienced in a game. This award is for those games who managed to move us not by their realistic graphics or gameplay, but by their tear-jerking ways of telling a great story.
- “Just Five More Minutes” Award
This game is great. I love playing it, but I really must hit the sack. Meh…five more minutes won’t make any difference. Aaaaaaaand it’s 4:00 in the morning. Again! This award is for those games which managed to keep up in front of your PC’s screen from dusk till dawn.
- “Whoooaaaaaaa, dude!” Award
For those, all those great games that send shivers down our spines gave us grisly nightmares and made us jump from out chairs.
- “Villains Most in Need of a Hug” Award
Because even the bad guys need a hug every now and then.
- “Game within a Game” Award
For the best mini-games, you can find in a PC game.
- “I Thought This Game Was Cool Before It Won an Award” Award
Because there’s nothing more inspiring than someone shouting out a lot: “I saw it first, and I thought it was cool before anyone thought it was cool.”
- “Best Use of A Farm Animal” Award
Goat simulator much?
- “We Didn’t Think of Everything” Award
We don’t know for sure if Steam Nominations will include this category, but it’s an interesting thought. The name of the category is pretty self-explanatory, and there’s only one game which actually has the highest chance of winning the award.
Now, here’s how you can cast your vote for Steam Nominations 2016. Head over to Steam Award page, choose an award and click on the “Search in the Store” button, select the game which you think is more likely to win the award, and cast your vote.
