    Hey!

    As some of you might know, the 2017 Steam award nominations are currently in full swing.

    http://store.steampowered.com/SteamAwardNominations/

    Maybe we could find a way to help BeamNG win in one of the categories and help it get the recognition it needs.
    Any ideas/thoughts?

    Well, the 'labor of love' award seems to match beam pretty well. I'm personally torn between nominating Beam or the recently reinvigorated Wreckfest for the award, but that's the one I think would match best.

    I've also nominated BeamNG in the 'Labor of love' category. I think it's the right one to vote for.

    How do I get to that? I don't use steam via browser.

    I've done it through the client itself, simply open BeamNG in the storepage and the nomination button should be right there in the purple field. Not sure if doing it through a browser works.

    It fits, but CS:GO is definitely taking the title there.
    The "even better than I expected" award seems nice, and it states the hype-train, a Beam staple ;)

    I think the "Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war" one. Beam is the best place for realistic destruction of cars these days.

    I despise how you cannot nominate a game for multiple categories

    otherwise I'd put fallout new vegas for everything except the thing about good looking characters tbh

    but it should totally at least win the choices that matter award

    Sorry for the bump, but I didn't want to make another thread for it just to talk about the current status.

    I think the finalist results are ridiculous. None of my nominations made it, and I think some of the finalists don't deserve it.
    Team Fortress 2 and Garry's Mod is over a decade old, so why are they finalists for a 2017 - 2018 Steam Awards? They've had their run, now there's newer titles that deserve the attention more than they do. BeamNG deserved the Labor of Love vote more than TF2 did. Undertale needs to disappear. This one really made me mad, considering that I can name several games with a better soundtrack, and that there is a reason Undertale is one of the most hated games in the world today. I have no idea what to think of Cuphead being a finalist twice, as I hadn't really been interested in it. The only game that I am interested in that is on the list is Cities: Skylines, as I just recently got it.

    I'm probably never gonna vote for the Steam Awards ever again. :mad:

    TF2 and Gmod got the nominations because that's exactly what that award is about, games that are several years old and were constantly updated until today. As for BeamNG, when I saw the list of nominees the first thing I thought to myself was that BeamNG could've totally been in there somewhere if the devs encouraged people to vote either via a blogpost or something similar.

    It isn't as bad, they chose those because they made them the most mone-I mean because people chose them other the others.

    I understood that, but still. I've never played TF2, so I don't know what their updates look like, or how they compare to BeamNG's updates.

    man, that salt

    all the finalists are perfectly reasonable, mostly

    the steam awards have no reason or requirement to be recent games

    BeamNG does not qualify for "labor of love" in the slightest. It's not even "done" yet. It's for FINISHED GAMES that have continued to be updated and supported. TF2 and Garry's Mod fully qualify for that (garry's mod wasn't even nominated anyway). TF2 just released a huge update at the end of October.

    The only problematic finalists are Life is Strange/The walking dead for "choices matter", because your choices literally don't matter and make no difference to anything, and doki doki literature club/garry's mod for "defies description", because doki doki literature club is just a fuckin story, m night shamalamadingdong plot twists can be described very easily, and garry's mod has no intrinsic gameplay elements that render it indescribable, it's a source sandbox.

    fuckin at least 1 game from Obsidian should've been in choices matter

    cuphead certainly deserves to be in best soundtrack (best soundtrack was the "community choice" btw) and "even better than I expected".

    I mean, maybe it's up to preference if you like the genre of music cuphead has, but it's objectively good for the genre, especially in games, especially considering it's all unique
