The 2023 Steam Awards

The community has made its voice heard! The games listed below emerged as the victors of the 2023 Steam Awards, thanks to your votes during the Steam Winter Sale and now revealed in 2024!

Game of the Year - Baldur's Gate 3

Maybe it was its immersive gameplay, or its gripping story... its well-crafted characters, immaculate design, or addictive multiplayer. Whatever the reason, the winner of this year's Game of the Year Award is an instant classic.

VR Game of the Year Award - Labyrinthine

The VR Game of the Year isn't merely masquerading as regular reality. This game improves on reality, taking advantage of the medium of VR and pushing the boundaries of the virtual realm.

Labor of Love Award - Red Dead Redemption 2

This game has been out for a while. The team is well past the debut of their creative baby, but being the good parents they are, these devs continue to nurture and support their creation. This game, to this day, is still getting new content after all these years.

Best Game on Steam Deck Award - Hogwarts Legacy

This game was so good, you wanted to take it everywhere. So you grabbed your Steam Deck and did! Luckily, everything that made it endlessly playable at your desk got even better on the go.

Better With Friends Award - Lethal Company

There are some games out there that just aren't the same when you play by yourself. Maybe you need to have a friend to watch your back. Maybe you need to have a friend that you can stab in their back. Either way, fun is awaiting those who gather friends together play this game.

Outstanding Visual Style Award - Atomic Heart

Visual style doesn't aspire to real-world graphical fidelity (though a noble goal in itself)… it describes a distinctive look and feel that suffuses an entire game.

Most Innovative Gameplay Award - Starfield

The designers of this game are at the front lines of creative experimentation, bringing a fresh perspective and brain-breaking surprises. This game delighted, inspired and entertained with newness never played before.

Best Game You Suck At Award - Sifu

This is the game that rewards persistence, and is not for the faint of heart. It's the toughest game we've ever loved.

Best Soundtrack Award - The Last Of Us Part 1

This unsung hero deserves to be recognized for its outstanding musical score. It's the OST with the MOST!

Outstanding Story-Rich Game Award - Baldur's Gate 3

Some days, only a narrative-heavy game will hit the spot, and this one packs a wallop. It's as gripping as any soap opera, and as well-tuned as a prestige-TV screenplay. Bravissimo -- for making us feel things!

Sit Back and Relax Award

This game is the antidote to a busy day. It's smooth, it's relaxing, it lets your worries melt away. This game is your moment of zen.

There you go for the Steam Awards 2023. Did your favourite game go in the list?
