Steam users complain Cyberpunk 2077 shouldn't have won 'Labour Of Love' award

Not everyone is happy with the results of the 2022 Steam Awards, especially for one certain category.
The Steam Awards give gamers everywhere the opportunity to celebrate the games they love and recognise the hard work that goes into them. Given that they’re decided through a community vote, you’d think that the results would reflect the feelings of most people, but it doesn’t seem like that’s the case when it comes to Cyberpunk 2077’s controversial new win.
Take a look at the trailer for Cyberpunk 2077’s upcoming DLC expansion, Phantom Liberty, below.
For anyone out of the loop, Cyberpunk 2077 managed to bag the “Labour of Love” award - an accolade to celebrate the efforts of devs who haven’t given up supporting their game. More specifically, as per the award description: “This game has been out for a while. The team is well past the debut of their creative baby, but being the good parents they are, these devs continue to nurture and support their creation. This game, to this day, is still getting new content after all these years.”
On Reddit, people have been sharing their thoughts on the win: “I wouldn't exactly say that CDPR's post launch work was a 'labour of love,' more so a contractual and moral obligation,” one said. “Deep Rock, Project Zomboid and No [Man’s] Sky deserve it, not Cyberpunk, [I don’t care] what anyone else says,” commented another. Many also pointed out that the game has only been out for two years, which doesn’t really reflect the award description - one suggested that a “minimum age” restriction should be implemented for future nominees.
Obviously, the game still has a lot of support from fans, or it wouldn’t have accumulated the votes in the first place, and with the game’s DLC expansion releasing later this year, CD Projekt Red clearly isn't done with the game yet.
