FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I get multiple entries by watching from different browsers or devices?
No. A steam account will only receive one entry per draw, even if it is logged in from multiple browsers or devices.
Can I participate in more than one draw during the broadcast?
Yes. You are eligible for any drawings that happen while you are watching the broadcast, even if you have already won a prize.
If I win can I pick my prize?
No. Steam will automatically choose a game that you do not already own from the list of remaining prizes.
Can I play the game right away?
If you win, the game will be granted directly to your library and you can begin to play as soon as you like. Steam will also notify the winners after the broadcast.
What if I already own all of the remaining game prizes?
That is pretty awesome! However, you cannot win a game you already own.
Where can I learn more about the rules of The Game Awards 2017 Giveaway?
You can read about the rules here (http://store.steampowered.com/prizes/rules/2155400271460724616).

Well, I don't own most of the games and want most of them too. So I guess it is worth watching through Steam?

If this means I'll have to watch through the Steam player then no amount of free games will convince me to go through that torture. Ok after looking at the list of free games, I take back what I said.

Will you physically have to do something or can you just run it throwing steam and potentially win automatically. Probs going to watch this on the TV but will leave it running through steam too if it means a potential free game.

Steam is only doing this to attract more viewers so you have quick access to the Half-Life 3 preorder page when it is announced.

Nice. Will watch on steam.

This is like what Microsoft did with Beam during E3 and gave out DLC and some indie games getting tied directly to our GT's.

it says the giveaway is now closed :/
This hasn't been announced yet and now that it's got attention (thanks SteamDB :P). They are hiding it a tiny bit.
  • This won't start till the shows starts (Geoff is probably going to announce it on Twitter at some point shortly as he teased)
  • 150 Winners will be chosen every 15 minutes
  • You have to have a non-limited Steam Account
  • Each game has a set amount of copies available
  • If you are one of the 150 each round, you will win a random game from the list that you do not own, if you own all of them already - "tough shit son"

Maybe it's just not opened yet?
Seems so!

So all I have to do is leave this stream open in the client, no interaction needed? The show starts at midnight in London and I can't stay awake for this : (

I’m watching this on my PS4 Pro for the 4K YouTube stream, but I can just leave this running on Steam and check back if I won anything?

Also in London, just be late to work man :P

- that isn't so clear. It's possible you might have to click something, it's possible there may be an interactive element, it might also just be drops (in which case you do nothing), something they did a while back.

I wish I could haha

Thanks, fingers crossed there's nothing I need to touch and I get to wake up to a shiny new game!

It doesn't specify devices so I guess watching from my Wii U should be fine.

Bet it's gonna be cheapo games meh gonna stick with watching it on my phone
Perhaps not doing a drive by is a good idea:

  • Prey
  • Hellblade
  • Cuphead
  • What Remains of Edith Finch
  • Please Knock on My Door
  • Hidden Folks
  • Nidhogg 2
  • Divinity OS 2
  • Tooth and Tail
  • Hollow Knight
  • Mr Shifty
  • Old Man's Journey
  • CSGO
  • Night In the Woods
  • NBA 2K18
  • Tekken 7
  • Xcom 2 + War of the Chosen
These are all excellent games (bar NBA 2k18). 150 winners every 15mins

Neat. I'll have it set up and have my wife turn it on when the stream is active and I'll watch it through mixer at work.

Excellent. I will definitely watch via Steam now. Winning Divinity Original Sin II would be amazing.

But if I have a second stream going on my mobile to be in it to win it then it'll slow the streaming on the TV :/

Slow Internet problems. Decisions, decisions.
