Resident Evil Village was scary good last year.

The Capcom survival horror game took home the Game of the Year Award for 2021 at the annual user-voted Steam Awards, according to a report on These awards–introduced in 2016–recognize the video games published on Valve Corporation’s Steam service.

Resident Evil Village–released last May–is a sequel to Resident Evil 7Biohazard. In the game, players control Ethan Winters, who is searching for his kidnapped daughter after an encounter with Chris Redfield–and who finds himself in a village populated by mutant creatures.

The game–for Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S–has been praised for its gameplay, setting and variety. While Village maintains the RE series’ survival horror elements, the game adopts a more action-oriented style compared to its predecessors.

Resident Evil Village–the best-selling game across the U.S. and the UK during May of 2021–had sold more than five million copies worldwide by last October.
