Half-Life 2: Episode Two

We may very well see Half-Life 2: Episode 2 receive an award

Half-Life fans are getting creative with the Steam Awards 'custom' option.

Steam's autumn sale has begun just in time for Black Friday, and with it comes the first ever Steam Awards, where you can nominate your favourite games for a number of prestigious awards. Amongst the oddly named awards, like the "Whoooaaaaaaa, dude!" Award, there is also an option for you to pick your own category. In the "We Didn't Think Of Everything" Award, you can pick any game on the store and nominate it for a custom category.

Now, many of you will already be thinking that a custom category section is a recipe for disaster, and you'd be right. All over the internet we've been seeing crazy nominations for the most random things, but our favourite one so far comes from the Half-Life community. Fans desperate for word of the mythical Half-Life 3 have been nominating Half-Life 2: Episode 2 for the custom award, saying it should win the "Game that deserves a sequel" award.

The award is growing in popularity as word spreads, and could easily become the most voted-for. We doubt Valve will take much notice, as they love to remain tight-lipped about Half-Life, only dropping extremely subtle hints on occasion, but it'd be nice if we saw Valve acknowledge the award, or maybe even use it to drop a hint. Will you be using your vote wisely?
