The PC ports for five PlayStation console exclusives have been declared the winners at The Steam Awards 2023. The Steam Community has voted for its favorite games in 2023 across eleven separate categories, including Game of the Year, Outstanding Visual Style, and Best Game on the Go, and multiple PlayStation games on PC have surprisingly come out on top. This continues an incredible 2023 for Sony and its initiative to remaster and port its PS5 catalog to the desktop.
The Steam Awards 2023 winners list includes God of War and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Here is a short list of the five PlayStation console exclusives that won in The Steam Awards 2023:
- Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales – 2023 Outstanding Visual Style
- Stray – 2023 Most Innovative Gameplay
- Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade – 2023 Best Soundtrack
- God of War – 2023 Outstanding Story-Rich Game
- Death Stranding Director’s Cut – 2023 Best Game on the Go
The most surprising of the bunch is Death Stranding Director’s Cut, winning over other games like Vampire Survivors, Brotato, and Marvel Snap, which can all be easily played on the go. But The Steam Deck has changed the handheld market to such an extent that Death Stranding Director’s Cut stood on top of the pile. (Either that, or we just like Kojima and Death Stranding that much.)
Meanwhile, Elden Ring racked up yet another Game of the Year 2023 award and also won the 2023 Best Game You Suck At award (which is the most apt description for Elden Ring I’ve seen yet).
