It's almost time for the Steam Winter Sale to come to an end. You have just two days remaining to save a lot of money on what can be described as a "metric buttload" of video games. This also means it's time to see who won in each category for the 2021 Steam Awards.

Remember that each category had titles that were selected by the Steam community in November 2021. You were able to vote on which of those games should win in each category during the current Steam Winter Sale. The winners were revealed today, which means that there are still a couple of days remaining in the sale to pick up any of the winners if you're into that sort of thing.

If you don't want to visit the Steam page to see the winners, I've included them all below. Winners are highlighted in bold.
