Playing Appreciated is a group for members that like to play games they win and for giveaway creators that like to see their games getting played. This sounds simple, yet requires committent and dedication from members by filtering out games they like to play from all group giveaways and when won playing those within one month. In return members will get higher chances of winning games they want and creators will know their giveaways have a high chance of getting played. The group has more than 800 members and over 9000 historical giveaways.
More information and a FAQ is available via the Steam group. Current group giveaways can be found here on SteamGifts. Feel free to comment below if you have any questions!

I would like to join too
I have a question tho: What if the game i won is a campaign and i finished it in less than a month. let's say 3 days. Does that count?
Hi Svartsten! You're welcome to join. As for your question, after a month you should have played the game - if you did it quicker it's only good and of course it would count. :)
Now I realised my mistake. It says "play the game WITHIN a month". While I thought it said "play it FOR a month"
Sorry about that.
No problem, please let me know how you would like to enter if you're still interested in joining. :)
Yeah I'm interested.I already requested membership on the steam group.
And I think I'm gonna chose Option 1. But I would like also to do some giveaways for the group from time to time. :)
Alright, option one will do fine. Please let me know what game you pick. :)
I will play The Silent Age
Alright, playing The Silent Age will do fine. :) Please comment again once you've finished playing it.
I just finished the game ^^
Congratulations! Membership request approved, welcome to the group. :)
Hi, I'd like to join via option 2.
Hi bittermelon! You're welcome to join by giving away something you like to see getting played. :) Membership request approved, I'm curious what it will be.
Thanks! Giveaway created.
I see and already 15 entries, very nice. :) Thanks for sharing and welcome to the group. ^^
Can I join by option 2? I really want to make a giveaway
Hi Sisagent7! It seems you are in a rush to give something away. :P Membership request approved, I'm curious what it will be. :)
I see you've removed your comment; if you have second thoughts on joining, please let me know asap.
Haha sorry, I had a wobble when I saw I couldn't store Steam gifts. It's more complicated but anyway, I hope someone enjoys the gift, it's my favourite pc game ever!
Thanks for adding me to the group :)
No problem. :) I hope things will turn out alright, it's indeed not as easy as it used to be. I mostly buy games now at other stores where I get a Steam key to activate. Sadly that doesn't work out with the Steam sales. :/ Anyway, happy to hear you still like to join, welcome to the group. :)
This group has been good to me so I've created a bunch of giveaways for it. Just click on my profile to find them.
Thanks for sharing. :)
would love to join , will make a giveaway as soon as i join.
Hi FiddlerOnTheWeb! You're welcome to join by creating a giveaway of a game you like to see getting played. Membership request approved, I'm curious what it will be. :)
Hey there, would like to join, I won Scanner Sombre and Walking Dead last night, finished Scanner, started Walking Dead already :)
Hi negullah! Congratulations, you seem to be lucky in the last days. Normally we'd like you to comment before playing, but as you've already started playing all three winnings, playing The Walking Dead will do fine. Please comment again once you've finished the game. :)
Heh, sure, I'll let you know!
Can I join?
Hi sinscerly! Yes you can join, please let me know which option you choose. :)
Hello! Can i Join group?
Hi Jokern1k! As spoken via the Steam chat you're welcome to join. Playing The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited will do fine, although I didn't notice it didn't had achievements. Normally we'de like you to pick a game with achievements - please snap a few screenshots instead. Please comment again once you've finished the game. :)
As spoken via Steam chat you've played Stronghold Crusader 2 instead. Membership request approved.
Can you bring back the old giveaway progress system, the new one is just bad, sorry... :P
Thanks for anything you guys do for the group... :3
Sorry to hear you don't like the layout changes, I have to say it took a bit getting used too, but all the information is still there albeit in a different style. As for the not played status, it was awaiting approval instead and I've approved it just now. It's also the time me, Yirg or Muffin have that decides how fast or slow a giveaway gets approved. Thanks for the feedback. :)
ah ok thats why the status was hanging... but the new layout is a big step back... site shows me 2 games where i could see 4-5 before, the new design makes the section harder to use...
I would like to join the group with the first option:
I've recently won Loot Rascals from a giveaway, and I've been enjoying that (and someone gave me a key for 7 Wonders II today, which I procrastinated a bit with :P)
Hi hucknduck! You're welcome to join. :) Please pick a game you didn't play however, looking at your winnings only Men of War: Red Tide is unplayed. You can play that if you take some screenshots. Otherwise please pick an unplayed game that has achievements from your Steam library. Please let me know!
Hello! i really want to join by option 2!, all my giveaways by now was games that i bought to see the players play in those games. sure ill do more giveaways!
Hi Adiadi2341! You're welcome to join by giving away something you like to see getting played! Membership request approved, I'm curious what it will be. :)
Hello! Can i Join group?
Hi Apukero! You're welcome to join, but please pick one of your 93 winnings that have achievements that you didn't play yet and let me know. :)
I would really like to join your group. I have recently won "Bitcoin Clicker", but I haven't played it yet - I am going to start playing it right away!
Ok, I just finished the game..I guess. Its an infinite clicker game..after 83 minutes I stopped playing, because it was dead boring. After an hour or so I started it again and my progress was gone..so your progress doesn't save at all..except the achievements..and it's just plain boring. Its not even a good clicker game. That was kind of a waste, what a pity! ^^

Hi berschok! You're welcome to join, playing Bitcoin Clicker will do fine and seeing you've already played it now I've approved your membership request. :) Welcome to the group!
Hello Reforced, I just sent my invitation to join the Playing Appreciated steam group. I've won a Steamgifts giveaway for The Growth Journey and I've got a perfect score on 26 out of 50 levels, and 4 out 7 achievements so far. I'm interested in joining under Option 1. I'll be posting some screenshots soonish and will comment again once I've finished the game
Edit: I've completed my Steamgift game prize after about 6 hours. I've uploaded some screenshots and managed to get all the achievements too. https://www.steamgifts.com/giveaway/B9Y3W/the-growth-journey
Hi Janediel! You're welcome to join, please pick a game you didn't play however. Seeing you have none, you may pick an unplayed game from your Steam library instead that has achievements (or you can simply wait for your next winning :P). Please let me know. :)
Oh I can't join just yet? I've started Space Run Galaxy and have 6/20 achievements already but it will take 80 hours to complete according to howlongtobeat.
Edit: I've finished Planets Of War (100% achievements and end credits screenshot) and I'm halfway through the campaign for Planets Under Attack. Will update once I've finished the entire campaign.
Edit2: Completed the campaign for Planets Under Attack and uploaded screenshots too.
Edit3: One-third of the way through Cube Runner. It's really testing my reflexes.
Edit4: Completed Cube Runner and uploaded more screenshots. Oww my poor fingers!
Hi Reforced! Won another game yesterday (Secret in Story) and completed it with achievements and screenshots
Looking at all the edits and playing you did, it seems this group is the right place for you for sure. :) Membership request approved, feel very welcome to the group!
Thank you so much kind sir!
Hi there, I'd like to join too.
I'm going to play Dead rising 2 - which is already an playing appreciated GA I was able to enter by whitelist.
Currently I have an offset of 3 hours due to idling.
Hi excelite! You're welcome to join, playing Dead Rising 2 will do fine. Indeed you have an idling time of 3.5 hours, but that's fine. Please comment again when you have finished the game. :)
sry I just can't get it to start up, tried about every suggestion that is available in their discussion group and other sites. (this will go to my backlock though).
I have to either switch game or come back another time. my alternative would be Borderlands:
since it doesn't contain the time that is currently on it was due to testing, before I offer it in here
Playing Borderlands will be fine too. The 0.3 hours on record is alright, since you didn't achieved any achievement. Please comment again once you've finished the game.
Finally I was able to complete it with 100%, but those grinding achievements were a pain...
Wow, congratulations on finished the game 100%. :) Please request to join the group here and I'll approve it as soon as I'll see it (or give me a bump after a while).
cool, thanks & request sent
I would like to join by the second option if at all possible! I've got a few games GA's hanging back that I'm waiting for the right moment to set up and this seems like a rather good group to post them in!
Been curious about this group since my friend joining it and telling me all about it.
Hi MonochromeMagpie! You're welcome to join, giving away something you like to see getting played will do fine. Membership request approved, I'm curious to see what it will be. :)
Tewam said I should join, dunno why, but he said it, blame him.
I guess, I would try it with option 1.
I would play Jones on fire (not played yet, only 3.6 hours of card idle)
see ya in a while
Hi Nariel! You're very welcome to join, playing Jones on fire will do fine. Just as a note, you indeed have 3.6 hours on record due idling. Please comment again once you've finished playing the game. :)
just finished with it. god that game was boring :D
Wow, but you finished it 100%, congratulations! Invitation was send, welcome to the group. :)
everything less is not finished!
Hey! I have been playing Oxenfree I won in the group, but cannot continue due to a known bug, which has been described here http://steamcommunity.com/app/388880/discussions/0/1479857071260089558/
What do I do?
Thanks for reporting, looking at your playtime of over 5 hours you've played it enough already, so I've approved the giveaway. Good that you've reported it nevertheless, I hope the developers will fix it soon so you can complete the game. :)
Thank you! I sincerely hope they will fix it!
I'd like to join, and I'll go with Option #2 because why not.
Hi CalculonJones! That's a good reason :P And I like your wise cat avatar. ^^ Membership request approved, I'm curious to see what game you'll give away. :)
Hi, I'd like to join. I just finished earthlock, blade kitten and bionic commando so next game I thing I will play
Eventide: Slavic Fable on weekend.
Hi fullystormer! You're welcome to join, playing Eventide: Slavic Fable will do fine. :) Please comment again once you've finished playing it.
just finished it both main and additional story :D
Nice :) Membership request approved, welcome to the group!
I'm got a question... I've seen this group before and wanted to apply but then I completely forgot... Now I've just finished Fortix and got 100% of achievemtns after hours of nerves and frustration. Could I apply with that or do I have to complete any other game?
Hope it's ok to ask...
Edit. Eventhough I would love it to be accepted since it was so frustrating and HARD to achieve and that I've spent so much time, I do realise it doesn't meet requirements. That's why I'm going with Option 1 and I'm choosin Gunman Clive which I won here in the past. I'm starting to play the game within minutes. Wish me luck! :)
Hi pampuch721! Indeed it has to be a game you've not already started playing, but playing Gunman Clive will do fine. Just as a note: you have 2.6 hours on record already (probably due idling). Please comment again once you've finished playing it. :)
Just for your information, I've never idled the game. You commented about 3 hours after I did so everything is alright I think since I said I'm starting the game within minutes :)
Now I've just completed the game. I got the achievements that show I completed the game and made a screenshot too. I've just applied. Hope I'm good to go! Please let me know.
Agreed, membership request approved. Welcome to the group. :)
Thank you very much! :)
BTW Can I add you on Steam to ask few questions, please?
Sure, feel free to add me. :)
Added just now. I wanted to do it earlier but I forgot what questions I had and now I got some new ones :)
I'm going to start play a game I recently won, hopefully turns out well, accidentally already sent the request to join before that tho so just ignore that for a bit, I'll re-request when I'm done with this stepp
Hi Szzzzzx! You're welcome to join, but please comment the name of the game before you start playing it. If you don't like the game after you started playing it, you are free to change it by commenting another game. :)
I'll do so when I'm able to, right now have downloaded Human: Fall Flat so will try thatt
Playing Human: Fall Flat will do fine. Just as a note: you have 3.5 hours on record due idling. Please comment again once you've finished the game. :)
Hi, so erm, I couldn't do it in the end cuz of many other reasons that would just end up as excuses.... Instead, my friend told me about this gib and I really really want the chance to try out the game. I'm going to ask if I could join the group again, this time with Option 2 of giving gibs to be played firstt, I had previously sent a request to join the group, if possible could I join thankss
Hi, so sorry about the delay, but yeah, I'll like to request (again) to join. Option 1 would be me trying to play Tomb Raider, (which I have 4 hours on idle), and also Option 2 for some unbundles that I probably won't play but would like others to try out. I tried to request to join again for that nier gib but missed it but wanna try to join again in case another crazy AAA game appears so I may get the shot at it. Thanks, gon start playing Tomb Raider noww
