Part two of the "Steam Awards 2017 nominees" list is here. The list includes the categories you can vote for from 27 December up until 02 January. Each category will be available for 24 hours.

Steam Awards 2017 are in full swing right about now. However, more than a couple of categories are still winner-less, and that is about to change in the next week or so. Last week I shared with you the first part of the list of the nominees. This week, we continue the tradition of me splitting my workload in half. Also, Merry Christmas.

You'll decide the winner of the "Defies Description" Award on 27 December. you can vote for a new category every day from 6:00 PM GMT. The "Defies Description" award does just that so I'll just tell you who the nominees are:

-Garry's Mod

-The Stanley Parable

-Pony Island

-Antichamber

-Doki Doki Literature Club

The "Cry Havoc And Let Slip The Dogs of War" award will be voted on on 28 December. The winner of this award needn't have the biggest explosions, but it must have the "potential to be a rampaging force of nature". Like Archer. The nominees:

-Just Cause 3

-Total War: Warhammer II

-Broforce

-Red Faction: Guerilla Steam Edition

-Middle-earth: Shadow of War

On 29 December, Steam users will be asked to choose a game into which they willingly sink hours upon hours of their lives. Whether they will manage to pry their eyes away from said games in order to answer the call is up for debate. The "Haunts My Dreams" award nominees include:

-Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

-Dota 2

-Dark Souls III

-Factorio

-Sid Meier's Civilization VI
