Im pretty sure it was voted ironically

[-] [email protected] 65 points 5 months ago

This, Starfield winning 'innovation', Cities Skylines 2 winning 'strategy' - pretty sure the infamous hacker known as 4chan was behind this.

When you vote for the Steam awards you have to choose a game for every award to be able to submit it so people just don't care for some and put it any game they liked and enjoyed. Also, a lot of people probably don't read the award's name and just put in anything.

[-] [email protected] 15 points 5 months ago

That's simply not true. I skipped multiple categories, including this one, because I didn't have a good answer to give.

[-] [email protected] 16 points 5 months ago* (last edited 5 months ago)

Because your didn't want to have all the stupid stickers. You need to vote for something to get them. So people who are just there for the stickers vote for anything.

Edit: saw in the comment before that the author mentioned you needed to vote for all to submit, and that's what you answered to. You are right. You were able to submit single votes.

Could also be they didn't read past the title of the award, tbh.

Which pointed out to me just how little I care about award shows and competitions. The only thing that will come of an ironic vote is unironic positive press.

This was more a steam f@#£ up. They required you to vote in all categories, to vote in any. This led to many people just voting for the one they knew about or vaguely liked, in categories they weren't interested in.

[-] [email protected] 50 points 5 months ago

It did not, you could just not select one and keep scrolling. They did however reward you with stickers for voting in each category which probably had the same result

[-] [email protected] 12 points 5 months ago* (last edited 5 months ago)

Seriously, I keep seeing people parrot that and I don't get it. Do you guys not have scroll wheels?

[-] [email protected] 7 points 5 months ago

It wasn’t required to vote in all categories but they encouraged you to do so via ui elements and steam rewards.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 5 months ago

You could definitely skip categories -- I don't have a VR headset so I didn't vote for best VR game.

I'm pretty sure a few of the wins were trolls, RDR2 won labor of love, Starfield won most innovative gameplay, Last of Us 1 won best soundtrack (this one might not be a troll, but I believe it might've been due to the godawful PC port.)

Really surprised that seems like I'm the only one who's ever looked this up. But January of last year they did update the packages on Steam. I have no idea what it was, and I'm not saying that the game should have won the award. Really it highlights a way to exploit the algorithms.

I thought these award were voted on by users? Never pay them too much attention honestly.

[-] CaptPretentious 3 points 5 months ago

They are voted on by users. But there is a list that is presented to the user to pick from.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 5 months ago

Those are also nominated by users in the months preceeding.

[-] cynar 1 points 5 months ago

They are.

The issue is you have to vote on all categories, not just the ones you are interested in.

What does the last sentence mean?

[-] JJROKCZ 33 points 5 months ago

On 4chan pajeet is usually used to refer to Indian people, not sure why this person would be calling rockstar fans pajeets though. Race of the fans voting doesn’t seem like it would matter to me

I tried to play Red Dead Online a few weeks ago, got disconnected three times trying to do the first mission.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 5 months ago

it has always been soooo weak

Dota 2 got robbed

[-] [email protected] 2 points 4 months ago

Hi, its me. I voted for a bunch of nonsense and am now laughing at all the people shidding and pissing about fake awards that mean nothing.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 4 months ago

It should have gone to Cult of the Lamb
