The results for the Steam Rewards 2021 are in and Resident Evil Village won game of the year, as voted by members of the Steam community. Resident Evil Village was one of the most popular FPS games of 2021, with fans clamoring to play the game before launch, thanks in large part to the widespread popularity of a certain Lady Dimitrescu.

In the first quarter of last year, Capcom had its biggest profit period ever in 2021, thanks to the double success of Rise of the Monster Hunter and Resident Evil Village. The game has sold over five million copies to date and will likely sell more once the planned DLC is revealed in more detail. The game’s critical reception has been positive, with many describing it as combining the best elements of first-person horror from Resident Evil 7 with the more action-oriented setting and tone of Resident Evil 4.
