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.

I won van helsing a couple of days ago and played for till story end. Was gonna comment here but couldnt find your post. So posting now. Wanna join as a player. :)
Hi djoni71284! You're welcome to join. However, it looks like you did not won Van Helsing here on SteamGifts. Besides, it looks like you didn't play any of your winnings here. Please pick one of them that has achievements and comment the name of the game here before playing it, if you would like to join.
hello, I would like to join with option 2
Hi annanas! You're welcome to join by giving away a game you like to see getting played. I'm curious what it will be. :) Membership request approved.
can i joins?
Hi Katsurandom! Yes you can. Since you have no winnings yet, you can pick an unplayed game that has achievements from your Steam library instead. Please comment that here before you start playing it. :)
welp, i just bought AoE II since it was in sale so i might use that i guess?
that thing has over 200 achievements though, do i need to get them all?
if it is so, then i will just do a giveaway or something~~~
LOL, no, not all of them ^_^
BTW you may also check this Unlucky-7 group too
already joined that, but since i don't like the idea of wining for the sake of wining i haven't joined a giveaway there as of yet.........
The main story seems to take about 27 hours, so if you are close to that it will do just fine. For future group winnings playing half of a game, up to a maximum of 5 hours would be fine.
i have about 6-8 hours since publishing my choice, so...i need another 20-22 hours depending on how fast i pick up the playstyle of this thing.........oh welp, should had done the giveaway..........
You can still pick another game or change your choice of entry if you wish. :) Or just cram in some more time if you like the game, there is no rush.. ^^
I shall join using the giveaway then, i don't like rushing AoE, since i bought it mostly for custom games
As you wish, membership request approved now in that case. :) I'm curious to see what gem you have. :P
I would like to join with option 1. I just won the norwood suite and I'll be playing it.
Hi TheDano! You're welcome to join, playing The Norwood Suite will do fine. Please comment again here when you've finished playing it. :)
Hey Reforced, I finished the game!
Nice, congratulations on finishing it 100%! And thanks for making a screenshot as well. :) Membership request approved, welcome to the group!
Was there once a requirement to be level 3 to join which has been removed? Got a level 1 winner which is fine for me but i´m also surprised that he´s a member. Or maybe i´m completely wrong and thinking about Unlucky-7 gifter rules right now.
Hi digge! There was never such a requirement, everyone is welcome as long as they play their winnings within a month. :)
Good to know. PA doesn´t need level requirements as you said. All these groups got me confused with their rules :D
Hi Reforced, I'd probably still like to join please!
Have finished Snail bob 2.
There was just one achievement I couldn't get no matter how hard I tried.
Hi Southrobin! Please see my reaction above.
would like to join using option 1

Hi SorryForWhat! You're welcome to join. Playing Outlast or Life is Strange will do fine. Please comment again when you've finished one of them. :)

Hi Variamus! You're welcome to join, playing Vertical Drop Heroes will do fine. Please comment again when you've finished playing the game.

Hello, I'd like to join the group by playing either Barbarian Souls (but it doesn't look like it has a lot of content) or Taimumari
Hi ElChcolate! You're welcome to join by playing either Barbarian Souls or Taimumari. Just comment again when you've finished one of them. :)
Hey I finished Barbarian Souls, it is pretty bad and is like 20 minutes long, gonna play Taimumari, it looks better

Hi, I finished the game, it was good I shall play it a bit more.
Agreed, membership request approved. Welcome to the group!
May i join?
Hi Peruvaz! You may.
Hi Peruvaz, we are currently in the process of clearing out all our old join requests on Steam and I came across yours. I would like to know if you would still be interested to join the group and if yes, with which option?
If I won't get a reply in a week I will simply decline the request, but you would still be welcome to join at a later time.
I still wanna join the group by the 1º option. I'll play Old man's journey´
The game you are going to play needs to have achievements and Old man's journey does not have them. Please pick a different game with achievements.
I'll play Beholder then
Ok Beholder will be fine (Note: there is 3.2 hours idle time on record). Please reply back to me once you have beaten the game.
Hi i would like to Join using Option 2 by hosting a group giveaway within a month
You probably misunderstood OP.
Option 2 means that you are going to make a giveaway as soon as you join, and that game will be played within a month by winner :)
aha no problem still interested in joining using the second option
Hi Alsawaf! You're welcome to join, membership request accepted in that case. I'm curious to see your first (ever) giveaway. ^^
hope you give me a couple days to think about the giveaway coz i'm really busy with exams nowadays
I see however you've already found and made a giveaway anyway. :) Nice and good luck with your exams!
i just have a question if i win a game " play it within a month " means start playing it or finish it in one month :D ?
You should play it up to the minimal requirements within one month. This is half of a games playtime, up to 5 hours. More information about it can be found in our FAQ. :)
Hi, i already plays all my pending games :D
Invite me again men to post some giveaways
Have a nice friday.
Hi eltracker! You can join back one more time, after playing all of your rejected winnings. I've looked over them and approved a few, but too many have not been played yet but seem to only be idled. Please look over them again (marked in red) and have fun playing them all some more perhaps. :) Have a nice weekend!
i not understand the rules and how to join
who can help me please?
Hi marom10987! If the English language is your problem, you might specify which language you speak, so me or others might help translating.
I'd like to join!
Hi avatare! You're welcome to join, please let me know how.
What game do you pick?
I tryed GTA III and it didn't load the mission, I think it not really supports newer Windows. I played Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! and it was SO boring.
Now I'm going to start DiRT Rally.
Hi avater, we are currently in the process of clearing out all our old join requests on Steam and I came across yours. I would like to know if you would still be interested to join the group?
If I won't get a reply in a week I will simply decline the request, but you would still be welcome to join once you finish DiRT Rally.
Ohh, yes I still want to join the group.
Ok, then consider my previous comment just a reminder :) Your join request will stay pending till you finish DiRT Rally.
May I pick another game? If yes, it would be ABZU.
Yep, beating ABZU will do fine too :)
I finished it. It was shorter than I thought, but had some fun with it, and made some nice screenshots. :D
Lovely screenshots and congrats on beating the game! I have approved your join request now, welcome to the group :)
I couldn't win any game unfortunately so i can't do the option 1. For option 2 can i do a giveaway from a bundle to join the group? And if i join the group by option 2 will i be able to join all the giveaways?
Hi Archfiend67! You're welcome to join. Please make sure to set your game playtimes to public. You can still join via option one, by picking an unplayed game from your Steam library instead. Giving away a game you like to see getting played will do too, but it's up to you and never required. :) Let me know.
I have Company of Heroes 2 that i didn't win here or played yet. So is it acceptable to be able to join the group? I already applied to join to the group name in steam is RedArchfiend67. And lastly should i wait for your approval to start playing or start anyway?
First set your game playtimes to public please, I cannot check at this moment. See here how your privacy settings should be set.
I guess i did it. Can you check please?
Yes, now it's fine. Have fun playing Company of Heroes 2 then and please comment back when you have finished playing the game. :)
Thanks :) great opportunity to be able to join this group :)
Hi Archfiend67, we are currently in the process of clearing out all our old join requests on Steam and I came across yours. I would like to know if you would still be interested to join the group?
If I won't get a reply in a week I will simply decline the request, but you would still be welcome to join once you have finished the game.
Hey, im sorry i am late. Actually it would be really great if i could join your group. But i didnt finish the game COH2 and didnt want to continue. BUt i would gladly play another game if you wanted for me to and give it a good try. Thank you :)
While I have already declined the join request you are still very welcome to join ^^ Since you have 5 wins now and 3 of them qualify for option 1 I would ask you to pick one of them (Millennium - A New Hope, 7 Days to Die and Savage Lands) instead of COH2 then.
okay then i want to play savage lands. Is there anything i need to do before starting?
I apologize about the late answer. No need to do anything else before starting. Let me know when you finish Savage Lands.
Hi donmatt146! Happy to hear, you're welcome to join too. :) Let me know if you find it interesting enough.
Hello, I have played various recently won games, but don't have any screenshots to share. I would like to go with Option 2 for Subterrain and possibly other games
Hi boostmaster! You're welcome to join. Just be sure to play any winnings from this group, a few screenshots are always appreciated too. :) Joining by giving away Subterrain will do fine. Before I can approve your request, please request to join our group here, and set your game playtimes to public please.
Thanks, I apparently requested a while ago, so it's still pending
I'll try approving it then, but first please set your Steam playtimes to public. Here is an example how it should look.
Thanks, I set everything to public
Great, membership request approved. :)
I have played some winned games, and now wanna care to join only wished GA.
I can make a GA to enter your group, and follow your amazing rules :)
Hi Notil78! You're welcome to join by giving away something you'd like to see getting played. Membership request approved.
Ok, thank you :)
I would like to join with the option 1. I already spent 24h on my most recent win, but I have only played only 10 min of the game "Legend of Persia". I always try to play my won games, but for some reason, I hadn't had time at the moment I won it.
Hi Nieaq! You're welcome to join, playing Legend of Persia will do fine. :) Please comment again once you've finished playing it.
Hi, I finished the game, it was surprisingly short :)
Nice! And almost all achievements too I see. Membership request approved, welcome to the group. :)
I would like to join. I'll choose option 1 (more fun that way), would it be possible for you to select a game for me? :)
Hi tso184! You're welcome to join. :) You have nice winnings I see, what about playing The Long Dark?
Sure thing! I've been abroad for a few weeks and not had access to my games, but finally back, and I'm ready to take on The Long Dark! So far they have only released two of the planned five episodes, but I guess I can call it "finished for now" after I've played those two? I'll reply as soon as I'm done with the currently available episodes.
Sure :) I hope you're enjoying it, I see you've put in some time already. Awaiting your comment that you're finished. ^^
Forgot to update you, I finished the game (or, the available episodes) a while ago :)
Congratulations :) I hope you liked the game, besides the clear sky days graphics.. ^^ If you request to join the group here I'll approve it as soon as I see it.
I'd like to join with Option 2. I'm thinking of giving away Sniper Ghost Warrior 2.
Hi tappingtheline! You're welcome to join by giving away something you'd like to see getting played. Membership request approved. :)
Hey, I'd like to join! I will probably not enter much as I don't have much time to play games, but I'd love an audience for future giveaways that is actually interested in playing. I'll make a giveaway for the group in a few days.
Hi fradigit! You're welcome to join by giving away something you'd like to see getting played. Please create a giveaway as soon as possible after joining. As for joining/creating giveaways in the future, you're free as a bird to do what you like depending on how much time you have. :) Membership request approved.
