The Steam Awards 2019 have been announced by Valve. Voting went on for twelve days on the platform and now, at last, the final results are in.

There are some obvious ones (Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice already won the top prize at Geoff Keighley's The Game Awards, for instance), while others such as DayZ winning the 'Best With Friends' award or even Grand Theft Auto V voted as the 'Labor of Love' of the year may well raise a few eyebrows.

Still, it's hard to be too much in disagreement with the Steam Awards 2019 choices, as most of these titles were featured in our own 'Best of 2019' series as well. They are definitely some of the best games in their respective genres, and what's more, they are pretty much all currently on sale in case you wanted to purchase any of them. Keep reading to find out all the winners (and the defeated nominees).
