For the first time since the launch of the Steam platform, Valve Corporation is letting their community members decide on the nominees in an awards program they recently announced on their site.

Users can visit any game’s Steam page in order to find a new link allowing them to nominate the title. Valve is rolling out the awards program alongside their current autumn sale, and will continue to accept nominations from the community through November 29.

The eight categories offered are noticeably silly and quite whimsical in title, including:

The “Test of Time” Award
The “I’m Not Crying, There’s Something In My Eye” Award
The “Just 5 More Minutes” Award
The “Whoooaaaaaaa, dude!” Award
The “Villain Most In Need Of A Hug” Award
The “Game Within A Game” Award
The “I Thought This Game Was Cool Before It Won An Award” Award
The “Best Use Of A Farm Animal” Award
The “We Didn’t Think of Everything” Award

Voters are incentivized to nominate through obtaining badges for their Steam accounts when participating in this year’s vote. Users can receive a badge when they:

– Nominate at least 1 game
– Nominate a game in each category
– Play a game you’ve nominated
– Review (or update your review) for a game you’ve nominated

Check back for updates and announcements on the winners when the results of The Steam Awards go live!
