Resident Evil Village Wins Steam Game of the Year for 2021
The results for the 2021 Steam Awards are in, and Resident Evil Village was named Game of the Year according to votes by members of the Steam community.
Resident Evil Village was one of the most popular FPS in 2021, and fans insisted on playing the game before it was released, thanks in large part to the popularity of the infamous Lady Dimitrescu.
In the final quarter of 2021, Capcom made its biggest profit thanks to the double hit of Monster Hunter Rise and Resident Evil Village.
The game has sold over five million copies to date and will likely sell even more once the planned DLC is revealed in more detail.
Critical reception of the game was positive. And many described it as a combination of the best elements of Resident Evil 7’s first-person horror with the action-oriented tone and setting of Resident Evil 4.
Resident Evil Village also won the PS4 Game of the Year award at the PlayStation Blog
At the PlayStation Blog, Resident Evil Village won the PS4 Game of the Year award. The game won four Golden Joystick awards (including Ultimate Game of the Year and PlayStation Game of the Year).
Additionally, Maggie Robertson (who filmed the move and voiced Lady Dimitrescu) won the Best Performance award at the 2021 Game Awards.
Now Resident Evil Village can add another trophy to its shelf for being named the Game of the Year Award in the 2021 Steam Awards. The win was announced on Steam’s official Twitter page.
