It’s that time of year again over on Steam. The 2017 Winter Sale is now live, with deals spanning the majority of the Steam catalog, with deals up to 95% off. As per tradition, there is also an event within the Steam client that also doubles as Steam’s community-driven Steam Game Awards. The list of games on is much too great to cover, but there are quite a few games that might be worthwhile to pickup.
The Steam event has gamers coming back each day to vote on a set list of games for a category that were decided beforehand. Each vote will earn individuals a Steam trading card, regardless of their vote, and when the complete card set is collected, they can be used to craft event-exclusive Steam emotes, badges, and profile background. Categories will change each day, and on January 3rd, the total votes will be tallied, and the winners will be displayed for all to see. The categories are as follows:
- December 21st – Choices Matter
- December 22nd – Mom’s Spaghetti
- December 23rd – Labor of Love
- December 24th – Suspension of Disbelief
- December 25th – The World Is Grim Enough Let’s Just Get Along
- December 26th – No Apologies
- December 27th – Defies Description
- December 28th – Cry Havoc And Let Slip The Dogs Of War
