Acting as its own Black Friday and Cyber Monday rolled into one, Steam’s autumn sale is now live, running until November 28th. Some of the deals on offer are rather impressive. As a bonus, Valve has also released the categories for this year’s Steam Awards, so you can cast your vote for which games should be nominated.

Players can now get their hands on a number of high-profile, indie, and obscure titles, and while the list is massive, the deals last the entire run of the event, so no need to panic. Among the 50 percent off options are heavy-hitters like Grand Theft Auto V for $29.99, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus for $39.99, The Evil Within 2 for $29.99, Rocket League for $9.99, and Prey for $19.99.

The sales go beyond 50 percent, though. For example, Dark Souls III is 60 percent off for $23.99, Resident Evil Revelations 2 is 87 percent off at only $0.79, and even the fantastic Portal 2 is whopping 90 percent off at $1.99. There also deals on DLC, like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt‘s Blood and Wine expansion for $9.99, Hearts of Stone for $4.99, or the full Game of the Year edition that includes the game and both DLC for $19.99. However, the listed selections barely scratch the surface. With hundreds of games on sale, make sure to check out the site to see what Steam has to offer in your favorite genres.

As for the awards, fans can simply visit a game’s page on Steam and nominate it. The awards are split into 13 categories honoring games that make you happy, offer an extreme challenge, include ridiculous plot points, and many more criteria. Players will have until November 28th at 10 a.m. PT to cast their nominations, with voting officially beginning during Steam’s winter sale. Check out the full list of categories below and read the official descriptions on the awards page.

  • The “The World is Grim Enough Let’s Just All Get Along” Award
  • The “Choices Matter” Award
  • The “Haunts My Dreams” Award
  • The “Mom’s Spaghetti” Award
  • The “No Apologies” Award
  • The “Cry Havoc And Let Slip The Dogs Of War” Award
  • The “Suspension of Disbelief” Award
  • The “Soul of Vitruvius” Award
  • The “Defies Description” Award
  • The “Labor of Love” Award
