Yirg as we wrote here comes the post.
Please let me join. I am now rdy for it.
I have games lay around that are to worthfull to give it out to strangers that, mostly/often, never will play it.
So i choose Option 2 (different games from the humblebundle site).
I have a uncureable, chronical illness so i am often online but NOT at the laptop or only with often and big breaks -_-. All in all bad for nice playings. So i often play shorter games like Minion Masters or stuff like that. I hope my illness is soon in a better standing (minimum before anything change to a """good""" stand are 2 month)
I will try to play wins in the demanded time and are in a good mood to fullfill this point.
But i have a question too.... what happens when a game make problems with starting/is unplayable (so you can't play it) ?
Sometimes i have this problem with games. Not always is the bad hardware the solution.
I am sure this problem had others before me too^^ (and i not found a word to it..)
Have a good day
Ps.: Because today is one of my Pen&Paper RPG days i can not promise to make the GA's today. But tomorrow should be fast enough too :o) (i want my lvl 5 !)
Hi Masafor! You're welcome to join by creating a giveaway of a game that you like to see getting played. I've approved your membership request and am curious what game it will be from the Humble Bundle left-overs. :)
As for your question, if you know you sometimes have trouble running certain games, please do check the Steam store page for the system requirements. When it's indeed a game fault that you couldn't have anticipated, you can't play of course and we'll approve it then after you've reported it, but that happens rarely luckily.
Have a good day too!
Hey! I'd love to join back in with a giveaway. :)

Hi, I would like to join the group. I choose option 1. Since I didn't win any games with achievements yet, I will play Portal from my library.
Hi vtrporto! You're welcome to join, I see you won two games now, could you pick one of those? Otherwise Portal will do. Please comment again once you finished one of the games.
I've just finished Wolf Among Us
Nice. :) Membership request approved, welcome to the group!
Hi Reforced, I won a game from the group here. I was just looking through the group tool to check out the required hours for the game when I noticed it doesn't list it in my won giveaways page. Is the tool not syncing or some other problem?
Short answer is it takes 12-24 hours to be reflected. See http://steamcommunity.com/groups/playing-appreciated/discussions/5/1479856439047003259/#c2425614539584692010
Well okay thanks, I'll wait then.
Hi ZZN! Thanks for reporting, as Janediel mentioned there is a delay of up to 24 hours, but this time a technical problem was the issue. I've fixed it this morning and your winning is there now. :)

Option 2 ;)
Hi Savitar! 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'll be.
Hello I would like to join using option 1, I just started to play Kingsway a game I have won fairly recently. I hope that is fine. Otherwise I could pick one of the other games on my "won" list.
Hi ineverw1n! You're welcome to join, playing Kingsway will do fine. Note that you have 0.6 hours on record already. Please comment again once you've finished playing the game.
ELLO! Lovely group! I always like to comment on person who gave me the key just to assure that the key is in right hands :D since I really only enter giveaways of games that I wanna play. I don't want my steam riddled with games I will never play.
Option 1) Black Mesa
Thou I really do like to play games I won. Heck I even put Nioh on hold to play them! Since it kinda blew my mind that I got so many great games I wanted for free. Finished Dropsy and System Shock (finishing up System Shock 2 tonight) and in middle of Jedi Outcast and Hard Reset.
Buut I'm itching to play Black Mesa anyway so as soon as I finish SS2 I gonna do that and then post update!
Hi SENTIONAUTS! You're welcome to join by playing Black Mesa. Since I see you've already did so now, I've approved your membership request. Welcome to the group!
This group sounds like fun! Option 2 please. Is it ok if it's a bundle key? i bought Distrust but then got it in the humble bundle 2017 Yogscast Jingle Jam. I really want to see more people playing it though.
Hi whotookmyapple! A bundle key will do fine. Membership request approved, welcome to the group. :)
Alright finished playing Black Mesa.
Have to say, amazing game. Even without Xen levels. I thought it will be 1:1 remake but nope! Levels ale completely redone. It's amazing.
Also I was expecting it have Half-Life 2 graphics but...it's more like how I would imagine Half-Life 3 looking like tbh.
Actually these guys should totally make Half-Life 3 for Valve. They know what they are doing.
Thanks for the feedback, happy to see you liked the game. ^^
I just won my first game here in SG, but it is Dragon Age Origins which has no achievments and in average takes about 60 hours to beat. So, to speed up things a bit, I'd like to go for option 2 with a GA for "The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut" if that's ok.
Hi Centaurodeposse! Congratulations on your first winning. ^^ Joining the group by creating a giveaway of Van Helsing will do fine, membership request approved.
Thanks, this is the GA.
Can I join the group? I played all the gamees I won except for The Sexy Brutale because my computer is too bad and I want to have a better one befor I play it and Space Pilgrim III beause I want to buy all the Space Pilgrim games first.
Hi seventeemoarmy! You're welcome to join, however you need to pick a game to play first or give one away that you like to see getting played to enter. How about playing No Time To Explain Remastered? It only seems to be idled 2.2 hours. Otherwise perhaps one of the other two you've mentioned already.

Ok, I just played it, it was a great game.
Hello, I would like to join the group with option 1.
I've won my first GA on SteamGifts: Grim Legends The Forsaken Bride.
Hi Wizardos! Congratulations on your first winning on SteamGifts. :) I see you already gave away a bunch yourself, so it was about time. ^^ Playing Grim Legends The Forsaken Bride will do fine. Please comment again once you've finished playing the game. :)
Hi, I have finished Grim Legends The Forsaken Bride.
New to this, but I'd like to join. I'll try option 2 w/ my first ever giveaway - I have some keys lying around :)
Hi twfox! You're welcome to join by creating a giveaway and especially your first one. :) I'm curious what it'll be, membership request approved. To help you out a bit, when you Sync your account, you can select the "Playing Appreciated group" from the Steam Groups when creating a giveaway (at step 6, who can enter).
Hello and Happy New Year :)
I'd like to join via option 2 please.
Hi MadNinja! Happy new year to you too. ^^ You're welcome to join, creating a giveaway will do fine. I'm curious what it'll be. Membership request approved.
I'd like to join but havent actually won any games yet, so I'll guess i'll give away another game.
Hmm.. the game I want to give away is only available on steam and since you can no longer gift steam games, I'll head over to humble and have a look there.
you can play any game with achievements in that case for option 1
It's alright, I've found the game that I wanted to give away anyway. So I'll stick with option 2
Hi Liege! You're welcome to join, giving away a game that you like to see getting playing will do fine. I'm curious what you've found. :) Membership request approved.
I want to join, can't request on the group page though =P
Will give a couple of games away and play "Fix Me Fix You" I've won on SG.
Hi BloodHood! You were a member before, but got kicked for not playing fault - milestone one in time. I see you've played that game now. Rest the case of the achievements for NEKOPARA Vol. 2, they look suspicious because the order is not making sense. Also you've cleared chapter 4, but didn't seem to have cleared any of the others (1,2,3). Any explanation you can offer for that?
The problem was I played these games in offline mode and when I finally had an internet connection, they synced not so well, I've finished Fault - Milestone One, I'm currently replaying Nekopara vol.2 to make it up =\
Just look at my track record, I was playing everything and if I were using some SAM or smth else, I'd get all the achievements and idled approx. amount of hours needed, not just the 4th chapter xD
Hey! I would like to join with Option 1 :)
Going for Iron Sky: Invasion
Finished the campaign now, going back for some bugged achievements.
I don't see a pending join request from you. If you're still interested in joining, see Step #3 in the OP.
Edit: Found it. Welcome to the group! :-)
