Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.
Coziest game (Harvestella, Lemon Cake, Ooblets, Dreamlight Valley)

Best Soundtrack

We ain't outta here in ten minutes, we won't need no rocket to fly through space
Game of the year that I didn't play. A game that isn't for you personally but that you think looks great and are super stoked that the fans enjoyed.

Excited to hear you've developed integrated GOTY!

Hi everyone. What would you like to see beyond the obvious overall and genre categories? We've developed some custom internal functionality for this year, so let's go all out and broaden the scope of the NeoGAF Awards.

actual game design awards like:

Best Combat Design
Best Level Design
Best Puzzle Design
etc


and separate awards that distinguish between the technical and the creative

Best Art Direction (use of color, light, style choices, etc, a creative award)
Best Environment Art (technical award, best looking environments basically)
Best Character Art (technical award, best looking chracater models basically)
Best Audio Fidelity (technical award, like the sound mix & quality)
Best Sound Design (use of sound, style choices, a creative award)


more specific awards the merrier I'd say

Best Costume/outfit design.
After playing Witcher 3 again recently I'm reminded just how spectacular outfits are in that game compared to other fantasy games and I think there are plenty of 2022 games that also deserve recognition for their efforts on this front.

Best first hour of gameplay.
As great as some games can be as a whole, too many just utterly fail to reel players in quickly. Triangle Strategy, Pentiment, Death Stranding are great examples of games that need their first few hours completely overhauled, while games like High on Life absolutely nail it. Games that succeed here deserve praise and accolades.
