While 2021 had several games get pushed back to 2022 for various reasons, there were still quite a few hits. At the end of each year, we have The Game Awards to look back at the incredible game releases. It’s a show that helps celebrate the video game industry and award different developers, actors, and content creators. This was a thrilling show, and one quite a few gamers tune into. But other notable outlet awards are given out as well. One of those events that were featured for video games of 2021 is Steam.
Valve’s Steam digital client has been a go-to for PC gamers. Today, we’re finding out that Resident Evil Village took the Game of the Year award from Steam. For instance, The Game Awards 2021, Resident Evil Village was up against Deathloop, It Takes Two, Metroid Dread, Psychonauts 2, and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.
When it comes to The Game Awards, It Takes Two won. Meanwhile, as mentioned, the Steam Game of the Year award went to Resident Evil Village. This was thanks to users who voted for the game. If you haven’t played this game quite yet, it’s a title that takes place right after the events of Resident Evil 7. Fortunately, Resident Evil Village is available for players to pick up even if you haven’t played Resident Evil 7, as the game does provide a recap of events that happened prior.
Resident Evil Village will put players back into the role of Ethan Winters, who is trying to live a normal life with his wife, Mia, and their newborn daughter, Rose. Suddenly, things take a turn for the worse, forcing Ethan to battle against all sorts of monstrous foes. While Resident Evil Village was a big hit, we know that the developers are not entirely done with the game yet. There’s dlc in the works, but we haven’t seen just what that will entail quite yet. Hopefully, that will change soon, sometime this year.
