Despite the coronavirus outbreak in 2020, Steam brought us plenty of awesome games including DOOM Eternal, Red Dead Redemption 2, Death Stranding and Fall Guys.

However, Rockstar’s western managed to beat the competition and win the Game of the Year Steam Award for 2020. Red Dead Redemption 2 released for PS4 and Xbox One in October of 2018, but it arrived on PC in November 2019. The game is presented through both first and third-person perspectives, and the player may freely roam in its interactive open world. Gameplay elements include shootouts, heists, hunting, horseback riding, interacting with non-player characters, and maintaining the character’s honor rating through moral choices and deeds.

The news of the Game of the Year award was announced on Steam’s official Twitter yesterday. We remind you that these awards are handed by fans that use Steam as a platform to vote for their favorite games. You can also check out the full list of winners and nominees for The Steam Awards below.
