So. Steam awards 2020 are open for nominations. Given I game on a 10+ yrs old system and that I'm constatnly broke I don't really pay much attention to new releases. I do however care about the steam awards badge so I fill out the forms anyway. But since I have no idea what games even came out this year, nor have I played any of them and steam doesn't provide convinient list of everything released in 2020 (well if such a list exists it's not conviniently placed on awards nomination page) I tend to pick at random or try to get inspired by other people picks.
With that in mind I went here, to look for a discussion about nominations, but I haven't found one. So I'm making it myself!

Do you even care about steam awards anymore
Alyx deserves to be the game of the year, not just the VR game of the year, that's nonsense, you can't nominate the game for both and how could it be GOTY if not VR of the year ?
Game of the year: DEATH STRANDING
VR game: Half-Life: Alyx
Labor of love: Terraria
Better with friends: Sea of Thieves
Outstanding visual style: Horizon Zero Dawn
Most innovative gameplay: Golf With Your Friends
Best game you suck at: DOOM Eternal
Best soundtrack: Ori and the Will of the Wisps
Outstanding story-rich game: Heavy Rain
Sit back and relax: Littlewood
I pretty like my list =)
This was tough because there are a ton of games released this year with incredible visuals, music, gameplay, and story (and also because I usually buy games much later when they go on sale, so I haven't had the opportunity to play almost any of these)
I don't own any of these games except for the "labor of love". It was hard to make this because I don't think I ever played a game in it's year of release.
Do you get any points for voting?
Some pretty good choices this year. https://store.steampowered.com/steamawards/nominations/76561197970430448?k=14549783865045838237 The Game Awards this year have even better choices with the advantage of console titles, its just a shame in those your vote does not really count :)
It turns out I've only played one game released in 2020, so i nominated it for GOTY and picked random stuff for the rest to get the badge. I then removed all of my votes except for GOTY and Labor of Love so my nominations don't screw up the results.
