The Steam Awards 2018 Nominees - Winter Sale Starts Thursday

The Steam Blog announces The Steam Awards 2018 nominees, saying that the community will be able to vote on these beginning on Thursday when the Steam Winter Sale begins. There are eight categories: Game of the Year, VR Game of the Year, Labor of Love, Best Environment, Better with Friends, Alternate History, Fun with a Machine, and Best Developer. Interestingly, not all the games in all categories came out this year. Also, Valve is not including themselves in the best developer category. Here are the nominees:

Notes on Best Developer category:
"Best Developer” proved to be a highly-contested category with a lot of close calls among the top nominees. As a result, we expanded the set of nominees to 10. In addition, we’ve excluded ourselves from this category. We appreciate the love you’ve shown us, but we want to honor the other awesome developers on Steam, so we have excluded Valve from the final tally.
