Poll of The Week #251: Have You Removed Any Games From Steam?

Image



Hello once again everybody and welcome back to the Poll of The Week. And Valve have finally done something that I never thought they would do. They have given users the option to remove games from their account. Only took them what feels like forever but they have done it, true you have to go through Steam support to do it but it can be done. And if the game you want to remove is part of a bundle then you have to remove the whole bundle as well. But given all that the option is there, so the big question is have you removed any games yet?

I'll be honest and say that I have removed a few games from my Steam account, mainly ones that I had bought, didn't like and as I couldn't refund them, I kept them hidden. But since they gave the option I have removed maybe 5 games. I could remove a few more but I just went for ones that I know I wanted removed from my account.

Please keep your ideas coming for future polls. Send myself or any one of the Moderators a PM. And you also get a mention for being the one to suggest the Poll. So you can do this when you see your name in the thread :cheers:

This poll will run for 7 days; you can only choose 1 option. So get voting!

It seems odd. Why not just use the various filters to hide the ones you aren't playing? Maybe I'm missing something about this. :?

Maybe you don't want your new friends that judge your steam library to know that you once had Secret of the Magic Crystals. :D
But I'm feeling good, And if you don't exist, you're still one illusion that I can't resist

I have it filtered to only show installed games, especially as I have more steam games than I'll ever get around to playing and my laptop storage isn't amazing.

I never knew this option existed and I don't expect I'll use it.
