A new year is upon us, and as usual, that means the winners of 2021's Steam Awards have been announced. The Steam Awards nominees and winners are voted on by Steam users, so they’re an interesting democratic look at what PC gamers were actually into the past year. This time around, Resident Evil Village nabbed GOTY, while games like Forza Horizon 5 (Best Visuals) and Cyberpunk 2077 (Best Story) also took home awards. You can check out the full lineup of winners, below.
