Some Cyberpunk 2077 Players Are Angry that the Game Won an Award at the Steam Awards

Some Cyberpunk 2077 players are angry that the game won an award at the Steam Awards. Is this undeserved love?


As we reported, Valve announced a few days ago which games won in the various categories of the 2022 Steam Awards. Among them were some very strange winners, including Cyberpunk 2077, which earned the title “Made with Love” despite being released in a notoriously poor technical state back in the day. And apparently not all users of the game are happy about this result.

Since the award winners were announced, the game has received slightly more negative user reviews on Steam than before. And some of them have made no secret of why they pulled the game. Some wrote that fixing a flawed and unfinished game doesn’t mean it’s made with love. Others argued that the other nominees in the category were more deserving of the award, including Dota 2, Project Zomboid, No Man’s Sky and Deep Rock Galactic. And several commented that the enthusiasm was really only for Cyberpunk: Edgerunners. The Netflix anime was very well received, and its launch coincided with the arrival of a major update to Cyberpunk 2077, which saw a surge in concurrent users.

However, it’s worth noting that the Steam Awards are a public vote, meaning that the players helped Cyberpunk 2077 win the nomination. On Steam, it also seems that only a minority is dissatisfied with the situation, with the online store still having a mostly positive user rating of 79% for the RPG. In the category of “Made with Love”, games that will have content long after their release are nominated, and in the case of Cyberpunk 2077, there is no doubt that there will be an add-on this year, Phantom Liberty, starring Idris Elba.

However, despite the prize, CD Projekt is probably still not happy, as it has recently been revealed that they will have to pay millions in damages for the Cyberpunk 2077 scandal.
