PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds (PUBG) has won the Game of the Year Award in the latest Steam Awards.
The full list of nominees and winners of the 2018 Steam Awards can be found here. While PUBG took the most prestigious award, other winners included CD Projekt Red – acclaimed as Best Developer – Rocket League, which won the Most Fun with a Machine Award and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which won the VR Game of the Year Award.
The other awards – voted for by Steam’s users – went to Grand Theft Auto V (Labour of Love Award), The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (Best Environment Award), Rainbow Six: Siege (Better With Friends Award) and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (Best Alternate History Award).
Steam – rather bafflingly — acclaimed PUBG thus: “Maybe it was its immersive gameplay, or its gripping story… its well-crafted characters, immaculate design, or addictive multiplayer. Whatever the reason, the winner of 2018’s Game of the Year Award is an instant classic.” Hmm: an instant classic, definitely, but we doubt PUBG’s story or characters were factors in the all-conquering battle royale game’s latest win.
