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!

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
Hi BloodHoud, Thanks for the reply and sorry for the delay in answering. Please change your privacy settings to public for your game details and I'll have a look at Nekopara again. If that checks out now, you're welcome to join again.
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! :-)
Hi! May I join? I requested to join the Steam group too :)
Please see the OP for instructions on how to join.
I wanna ask you something:
I'm not at home on weekends and I haven't got an internet connection there, that's why i'm mostly playing in steam offline mode, where no playtime is counted on the online stats, but the achievements should get synced later. Is there a way to manually sync the games then, so even If I only played the game like 4 hours (because my idling bot, which is running 24/7 on my server) and I completed it in offline mode, I'm not getting kicked outta the group?
And I requested a join, too.
Your achievements and playtime need to be in sync by the time the month ends. If you can make sure this happens and would like to join the group, see the OP for further instructions.
Hi ! I would like to join the group with option 1.
I think I'll be playing (at last) Lords of the Fallen.
Here's the achievement page
EDIT : Well, it looks like I'll have to give up on that for the moment, since my PC is not currently powerful enough to make it run, and the game kept crashing
You can play "No Time To Explain Remastered" instead:
Can I join?
I'd like to join by playing my recent win: Jurassic Park: The Game
Sure I Am interested :)
For some reason I thought I have to wait for a response here, maybe the rules changed, dunno, never mind.
Request sent ;)
Welcome to the group! :-)
Hi, I would like to join the group via Option 2.
I have also sent a join request to the Steam Group.
A belated Welcome to the group! Looking forward to see which game you choose to give :-)
Yay! Thanks for accepting :)
Just made my maiden giveaway. Hope there are people who want to play Dungeons 2.
Hello , I have been kick from he group because I have not play games I win. I have play it now. Can i be back.
I will give the game Epistory.
I checked your previous wins and indeed you played them sufficiently. You are welcome to join again, but keep in mind that you only get to re-join once. There are no third chances.
Please send another join request via Steam.
I can't send a request on steam , it's said I was expulsed from the group? Do you know how i can make?
Please add me on Steam (temporarily). I'll then be able to send you a group invite.
I'd like to join via Option 2. Just requested through Steam. Thanks!
Alright, I am done with Kingsway, well as done as I can be with a rouge-like. The rest of the achievements I need I need to grind out runs but that will come in time I expect. I would have had it done sooner but the gf and I got super sick over the holidays. Also I am not sure it I was supposed to respond to my original comment or just replay to the thread.
I have since fixed the issue. I Thought I did but it turns out I had not. Thanks for the reminder!
Hey I'd like to join this group. Either option would work for me. I've got to work on playing my wins more and being in groups that force me to seems to help.
Playing one of your wins would be a great way to join. Just pick one that you haven't played and let me know what it is before you start.
Sweet. I choose Bastion:D Been meant to get around to playing it ever since I won it.
I loved the narrator in Bastion, too bad I never finished it. I should get back to it some time.
You can track progress here: http://steamcommunity.com/id/zaugr/stats/bastion/?tab=achievements
Hey, I'd like to join - I played Super Turbo Demon Busters - http://steamcommunity.com/id/CreepyJackalopeEye/recommended/262810/
Hi, Can i rejoin the group? I will be playing my most recent win - Cursed Castilla (Maldita Castilla Ex) https://www.steamgifts.com/giveaway/mUj6W/cursed-castilla-maldita-castilla-ex
