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 700 active members and over 5000 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!

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
I don't see a pending join request from you. If you're still interested in joining, see Step #3 in the OP.
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
Thanks a lot.
However, I can't send a join request as it says "You have been kicked from this group." in place of the request button.
Hi, I'm interested into joining this group.
I have won 7 giveaways since I joined about two months ago (all won within the past 5 weeks).
I have already played 3 of them
Puzzle Agent 2 : 100% completed
Plantera : 100% completed
HackyZack : Stuck at the 4th level unfortunately, this game is really tough for me
I've installed Sam & Max : The Devil's Playhouse and am about to play it this week.
As for the last 3 games
Intake : Installed, I will play it once I get stressed, arcady games let me evacuate emotions
Delta Force Land Warrior : I'm already playing 2 FPS games with friends at the moment, will play this one once done with the others
Tempest: Pirate Action RPG : I want to finish up The Bard's Tale before investing myself in a new RPG.
Sorry, I didn't know if we had to wait until step 2 was complete before sending the join request.
I've done it now. Thank you :)

I'd like to join. I played all my games and I finished the majority of my winnings in 100%
Edit. I won Grim Legends 2: Song of the Dark Swan three hours ago and I'm playing it right now
A belated Welcome to the group! :-)
I've deleted my previous comment as id like to reapply but via option 2 instead. Have sent a join request :)
oh i can also join via option 1:
i've just completed a game that i've won previously, Defy Gravity Extended, 100% achievements
link to achievements: http://steamcommunity.com/id/zerielle/stats/DefyGravity/?tab=achievements
I don't have that kinda time.... I have a full time job man
i want to join pls Option 2
Hello. I'd like to join the group through option 1.
Starting playing Lichdom: Battlemage (2.1 hrs on record from card idling only).
Note: while I do have quite a few unplayed game in backlog (both from SG and other sources) I'm in the process (a loooong one) of clearing it. Got down from 500 titles to a bit below 200 so far. So sooner or later all games are going to get the attention they deserve :)
Aaaaand.... done :) Full playthrough with some optional collectible stuff.
Knocking on the groups' door :)
I must admit, it was quite a ride. For a title from an unknown developer, and with mixed reviews on Steam it was way more fun than I've expected. Recommended. But watch out, this game can be REALLY challenging at times.
And I second what ChibiCthulhu wrote - it's not that I'm not going to ever create a group giveaway, it's just option 1 felt much more... proper? way for me. And motivated me in my personal quest for backlog vanquishing :)
I don't have too much time for playing games, but still some time to make some raffles... Peace!
To be honest i've never won... But i'd certainly play everything thrown at me at least 4 or 5 hours each.
Any of your the games in your library that you haven't played and that includes achievements will do. Just let me know which game you choose to play before you start.
I miss Reforced.
I miss... no one!
Where is Reforced anyway?
I like the idea of the group, not only because for quite some time now I only enter for games I am actually interested in but I also like when someone plays the games I give away (I got curious once so I checked steam profiles of
several winners of my giveaways and seeing some of them actually played and with the amount of hours they put in and achievements obtained I'll assume enjoyed those games really makes me happy).
I have mixed feelings about "Option 2", doesn't that one allow someone who doesn't care about the group's goal to enter easily with one giveaway and then try to win as many giveaways as he can before he gets kicked out for not playing the first win within a month?
Anyway, I'll enter with the "Option 1" (albeit I do plan on making giveaway(s) once I get accepted, I just don't want that to be my way of entry). The game will be Adam Wolfe (All Episodes).
Adam Wolfe (all episodes) beaten!
I'd prefer not to upload screenshots of the game I took because they are kinda spoilers. Here's a link to my achievements page for the game, got all of them.
As for your thoughts about users who choose to join via Option 2, it's proven to be reasonably effective in blocking those who don't intend to win and are just in for a one month of improved chances at winning games. But I too prefer it when people choose to join via Option 1.
Is it also possible to check whether I played all the games I won outside the group?
I tried to catch up on them recently but it's kind of a mess in there
nvm just found "do you even play bro", although it doesn't show me which I can try next
Played terrorist elimination right now and uploaded some screenshots, it was horrible, the game crashed after a few minutes and I'm not sure whether its satisfactory for you or whether I even want to go in again. But I hope I showed some goodwill to play anything
If you think Option 1 isn't met id look for something else I didn't play yet
Hoping for a reply
Played terrorist elimination
Played terrorist elimination
No offense but why would you pick such a disgusting asset flip when you have lots of unplayed quality games like Psychonauts, Civ V, Spec Ops: The Line or Risen to choose from ?
Shocked me a bit there, honestly, i played it because it was my most recent win and I thought it'd be easiest to check on.
I do remember play Psychonauts
Thanks for pointing the other ones out for me
No problem ;)
General rule of thumb if it gets distributed in mass GAs of more than 50 - 100 copies it usually barely qualifies as a game.
There are some exceptions like ChromaGun but those are extremely rare and normally just get posted here because the devs are dedicated members.
I'm afraid your playing of Terrorist Elimination doesn't qualify. Better pick another game from your SG wins.
You can use this script for general information about wins. The group's tool only handles wins of the group :)
thank you for the reply
