Cyberpunk 2077 and Crab Game Nominated for Steam Awards 2021

The games nominated for the Steam Awards 2021 have been announced, including as Cyberpunk 2077, Valheim, Crab Game, Halo Infinite, Loop Hero and Deathloop.

Valve announced the nominees for the Steam Awards 2021, selected based on user votes. It is from them that players will choose the final winners. The second round of voting will begin tomorrow, December 22, and will end on January 3.

It's worth noting that this year there is no category for VR games, which is another sign of weakness of this particular industry on the PC market. According to recent rumors, Valve itself is supposed to be losing interest in VR.

When analyzing the lists below, keep in mind that some of the games (ex. Cyberpunk 2077, which will fight for the statuette for best story) were released in late 2020. This is due to the fact that these games had already been released after voting began for last year's Steam Awards.
