Steam Awards 2019 - Best Game of the Year Goes to Sekiro

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice won in the game of the year category at 2019 Steam Awards. Other awarded titles included DayZ, Grand Theft Auto V, Gris, My Friend Pedro, and A Plague Tale: Innocence.

The extreme difficulty level did not prevent Sekiro from winning the hearts of players.

We have learned the winners of the Steam Awards 2019, i.e. prizes awarded to games available on Valve's website. Let us recall that both the nominated positions and the winners were chosen by the players themselves.

The title of the best game of the year was awarded to Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the latest project of the Japanese studio From Software. Grand Theft Auto V won in the "Labor of Love" category, created for old but still hot titles.

The award for the best VR game went to Beat Saber and DayZ was chosen the best multiplayer production. My Friend Pedro beat the competition in terms of gameplay innovation, and Gris did the same in terms of visuals. In addition, Steam's users have recognized A Plague Tale: Innocence as the title with the most interesting plot.
