I know there was another discussion about this couldn't find it so I made a new one.
Personally I like to hide Visual novels (as I find them boring) and anything below 5 points.

+1. If I'm interested in a game to play it I'll enter, if not I'll hide.

Reasons,
1- Already have that game, but was delisted on steam and steamgiveaways can't automatically hide it (like goo goo cubelets or parking rage simulator)
2- I take a look at the steam's page of the game, and I don't like it
3- It's a VR game (I don't play vr)

Do you mean games such as Coloring Pixels(good free game) or do you mean something like terraria which has a pixel art style?

Both, as I am not receptive to this kind of art.
I have a lot of fun when I was young with my old pc and also an old atari 520 ST :) , even if the game were ugly.
But when the screen resolution of our computer has became highter, my mind has switched, and now I am not able to have fun with this kind of game.

I enter only GAs only for games that I think I will play and enjoy, everything else goes to the hidden list.

On the giveaway page there's an eyes icon with a strikethrough, you click on it and it'll hide all the giveaways for this game.

I hide everything I don't think I would play, which is the vast majority of games.
On SG I have about 14.5K games hidden, and on Steam about 33K set to ignore.

It's pretty simple. If I am not interested in playing the game, it gets hidden. Isn't that what everyone does? I don't really see any other reason to hide a game unless you already own a different version and it isn't automatically being hidden. I currently have 13,368 hidden.

Edit: Or maybe you were asking how we decide what type of games to hide. I commented about that in a previous thread here.

Always: visual novel, tower defense, card game, grand strategy, VR, match 3, board game, clicker, pinball, city builder, text-based, dating sim, 4X, management

Over 90% of the time: RPGmaker, sports, simulation, bullet hell, memes, rhythm, JRPG, turn based, hex grid, hacking, MOBA, roguelike, anime, sandbox, RTS, Economy, runner

75-90% of the time: strategy, zombies, hidden object, casual

Since I only enter wishlisted games I don't tend to hide games unless I have to much time on my hands and then I will go through a page or 2. By then unless its a dlc I recognise I own I will only hide them if I've checked them out on their store page. If I end up ignoring it I'll also hide it on here. If it doesn't have a store page then I'll assume the worst and auto hide them

I used to check out every game I hadn't heard of and hide everything I wouldn't want to play. Nowadays I instahide almost everything under 5p, except if the art triggers something which indicates quality in me, then I go and check it out.

9,440 games at the moment. I hide almost everything which is either not on my WL, or not on my follow list, or if its VR, mostly if its horror, or visual novel, hog, quite hard to tell :D

Nothing, I just ignore everything pretty much.

Just check wishlist and group as that often holds some interesting games.

Publics I just scroll through every blue moon. Less effort then trying to hide everything I don't like. I am 'hiding' everything I don't like I actually own on the backlog assassins site, and that is already way more work then I'd like it to be. Can't imagine the horror if I'd have to do the same for the whole of Steam's catalog. :P

So far I mostly use it for featured giveaways of games I consider hmm shady. Which I don't even want to enter by mistake. :P

I know, I had activated that, it's the only thing I hide, I don't understand to blacklist games when you can just watch your wishlist and groups :/
