Its that time of year again, where everyone does their version of the game awards. Gamespot, Golden Joystick and The Game Awards have all released their reward results and Rockstar Games taking home multiple awards. Steam have now announced ‘The Steam Awards 2018.’

Voting will open on December 20th and will close on January 3rd 2018. The only games on the list, believe or not are games only available on Steam. So you won’t see games like Fortnite or Red Dead Redemption 2 on there.

Rockstar Games have been nominated for the best Game developer for 2018, with 9 runners-up with names such as Ubisoft and Bethesda.

Grand Theft Auto V has been nominated for the Labor of Love award. This game is over 5 years old and is still being supported massively by Rockstar Games, so they definitely deserve to take this award home.
