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 850 members and over 14500 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!

Option 1, Gato Roboto. Save the Animals is the "Finish the game." Achievement but I think I'll go for Purrrrfectionist which is the "Finish the game with 100% completion rate." Achievement, if that's okay.
Hi TerraIllumina, playing Gato Roboto will do fine, please tell us once you beat it, also if you want to go for completionist is completely up to you, you can request the membership once you finish the game if you change your mind
Hi TerraIllumina, we are currently in the process of clearing out all our old join requests 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 mark you as not interested to join on our list, but you would still be welcome to join once you have beaten the game :)
I couldn't beat the game.
You want to switch to a different game or are not interested to join anymore?
I'd still like to join but I'm currently not playing too much overall so maybe some other time I'll try again.
Ok, up to you!
Hi, I have a question about the group's rules. One of my created giveaways has ended almost a month ago, but the winner hasn't gotten around to playing it. He explained on the giveaway's page that he will play later this week (after the month ends) and I told him I'm fine with that.
Do I need to do anything else to make sure he doesn't removed from the group or something?
It's his choice to stay in the group(by playing the game) ot getting removed(by not playing it).
That giveaway still have 2 days left before the warning, once that happens he will have 10 more days to play it or get kicked, you don't need to worry about it, we always check those cases

Hello, I'd like to join with Option 2 (Pathologic HD)
Hi Battlewing, sorry for the late answer, Pathologic Classic HD will do fine, I approved your request, please make the giveaway as soon as possible and welcome to the group!
I created the giveaway. Thanks for the answer.
I would like to join this group.
I just won my first giveaway: the borderlands handsome collection.
Would it be okay to play "Borderlands the Pre-sequel"?
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Stats
If it's okay, here is the achievement page.
Hi brammolenaar, sorry for the late reply.
The game that steamgifts reports as win is not the Pre-sequel, so I cannot approve that one to be played, must be Borderlands 2
Okay, Borderlands 2 it is then. But that will take quite some time...
There is no time limit how long someone has to beat the game they join in with so no worries if it takes some time. Let us know once you beat Borderlans 2-
Hi PlayingViking, we are currently in the process of clearing out all our old join requests 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 mark you as not interested to join on our list, but you would still be welcome to join once you have beaten the game :)
Hi, thank you for reaching out.
It's fine to remove me from the list, I will apply again once I meet the requirements!
Hi, can i join ?
Hi motilek, please choose an option to join the group
Hi, can I select option 1 and play a game that I have not played, only farm trading cards using idle daddy? (For example, Grim legends)
Yes, there's no problem with idle time for Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride (noticed 3.4 hours of idle time), if you want to use that one to apply let us know once you beat it, or you can choose another unplayed win, but please tell us if you choose another
Hi motilek, I reviewed you playtime and achievements for the game and I am afraid you are not welcome to join anymore.
0_o What is wrong with my achievements and time?
Playtime nothing, achievements: a lot. After the first 5 achievements all of the rest were unlocked at the same time 30 minutes after the last normal looking one and missing story related achievements when you have the complete the game achievements? And having achievements that require to do 2 playthroughs? in 30 minutes? Sure...
Sorry, I don't buy it at all that this game was actually legitimately played (started yes, finished not), I played the game myself.
Please check again if it’s not difficult for you. Anyway, thanks! Great game, finished it with your help.
Check again what? That you modified the achievements? That only denies your application even more
I posted screenshots of almost all the achievements that I received, as well as the final credits of the game. You didn’t even look at the screenshots! Denies what? What did I complete the game? And did it honestly? In any case, good luck, I do not want to be in your group neither now nor ever else!
He doesn't mean the current achievements, but the original achievements you had before now which were achieved in a way that is against the group rules (SAM) so I am not sure what you expected that would happen.
Nope, you had your chance to play it properly the first time and you blew it. You are still not welcome to join, not now not any time in the future.
Hey, recently won tower of guns and i've spent around a day trying to actually start it but havent even been able to get into the starting menu. lots of mscpr100 and blah blah blah files missing. I'll keep trying to fix it but don't know if I will be able to play.
Hi, if you're unable to play your win, please report your bug in the discussions section of the game, so we can approve it as technical issues, but considering that the giveaway ended just 4 days ago, would be cool if you can try a bit more to see if you're able to fix it
Hi, I'm done, please check.
Hi, I'd like to join with option 2. Is " Shadowrun: Hong Kong - Extended Edition" okay for a giveaway?
Hi Hexarious, sorry but Shadowrun: Hong Kong is marked as free, you will need to choose another or do option 1
how about Pathologic Classic HD ?
Hi, giving away Pathologic Classic HD will do fine. Please request to join the Steam group here and we will approve it as soon as well see it :)
Join request approved, welcome to the group! Please make the giveaway as soon as possible.
Option 1, if a short hike is fine?
Hi alancml, you are welcome to join the group by playing A Short Hike, let us know once you beat the game :)
I have completed the game!
Congrats! Join request approved, welcome to the group :)
Hey there, I'd like to take the option of making some giveaways for the group. As for the game, or games, I have a spare Pillars of Eternity, Kero Blaster and Brigador that I can happily give to people that will play them.
Thank you :)
Hi Millsshogun, you're an old member that got kicked for not playing Furi and The last door, so in your case you will need to play both games to be able to join again.
Hi there, I haven't won anything on steamgifts yet but I've seen on other comments that you can join by playing a game from your steam library that you haven't started.
So I'll go with option 1 and play Homefront, is that ok?
Hi JJJ7, yes you are correct that you can play something from your library if you haven't won anything yet. Homefront will do fine, let us know once you beat it :)
Congrats on beating the game! Join request approved, welcome to the group :)
Thanks a lot! :D
Hi, I'd like to join with option 2 and Darkness II or Spec Ops: The Line. I'm going to give them both away (and others), but I can only create one more giveaway right now as I'm awaiting feedback on two others. Thanks!
Hi Jermione, both Darkness II and Spec Ops: The Line are marked as free, so you will need to choose another game for your apply, or do option 1, in your case as you haven't won anything yet, you can choose any unplayed game from your library
Ah OK, I didn't know where to look that up. I see now, thanks. I'll put up Zeno Clash 2
Zeno Clash 2 will do fine, I approved your request, please make the giveaway as soon as possible and welcome to the group!
Hi there! I love the concept of the group, to play games you win.
Anyways, I'd love to join with the second option. I believe The Turing Test will meet the requirements.
Hi halnco, you are welcome to join with option 2. The Turing Test does indeed meet the requirements. Join request approved, welcome to the group! :)
Do I require to make a giveaway every month?
Nope, just one to join in, after that is up to you as how many and how often you want to create them
Cool, I would like to join with both options 1&2. I will be playing Northgard :)
Please choose only one
2nd option, please
In that case join request approved, welcome to the group! Please make the giveaway as soon as possible :)
Thank you for the invite and will do!
Hello, may I join your group?
I would like to choose the Option 2, and I will giveaway XCOM 2. For some reason, the giveaway will have a region restrict (I believe the subid would be 88104, which restrict to Asia to active). Is this game appropriate?
HI AShine0720, I approved your request to join by giving away XCOM 2, please make the giveaway as soon as possible and welcome to the group!!
Thanks for accepting! :)
The giveaway has been created and will begin at 11:30 AM (UTC+8).
Hello. I won a GA from this group but have not recieved the gift yet. The GA creator has blacklisted me afterwards and I can't come in contact with him. Is there anything the group can help me with or do I follow the standard SG guidelines? Thanks in advance :)
Follow the standard procedure that sg uses, if you don't receive the game in the 7 day period, mark it as not received and the game should not be tracked, and if do, we will unfollow it
It does get tracked btw (I guess in case the feedback changes to received, Reforced will know the actual reason), but yea it just gets unfollowed when we spot it (I know which one it is, so all good).
Hello, a friend showed me this groups so I'm interested to join.
I have won Tomb Raider Legend but I never played the older one before so I would prefer enering by option 2 by giving away "Men of War: Assault Squad" and would it be good to give away more than 1 copy of the game?
Thanks and have a good day.
Hi kadogo, giving away Men of War: Assault Squad will do fine, we only ask for one copy but thanks if you want to give away more, I approved your request, please make the giveaway as soon as possible and welcome to the group ^^
Hello, thanks for the approving.
I just make the giveaway, I hope the duration is not too long I thought it was best to let it a bit longer and ending a friday so the winners can play in the weekend.
Giveaway length is completely fine, thank you for the giveaway :)
Thanks and welcome ^^
Can I join the group by option 2?
Hi Lon3r, you are welcome to join with option 2. Join request approved, welcome to the group! Please make the giveaway as soon as possible :)
Going to take a crack at option 1 with "The Sexy Brutale".
Hi moonsong99, you're welcome to join the group by playing The Sexy Brutale, please tell us once you beat the game
All done. Gotta say, it was cooler than I expected.
Join request approved, welcome to the group! :)
cool, thanks :)
Can I join with option 1 playing Lit the Torch?
Hi ambii, playing Lit the Torch will do fine, please tell us once you beat the game so you can join us!
Done! Nice game to 100% as well :)
I will need to ask for an explanation for this 4 achievements, those with the same time also have the exact timestamp and no one else based on our research have unlocked "Starter" and "Operater" at the same time, neither "Hand in hand" and "First Blood"
I really don't know why it came out like that, could be my internet failing on me but I cannot confirm. I can play another game to make things easier
We will need screenshots for this, that you did beat the game
these are all the screenshots I took in the playthrough
and here I took just now to show
I got the approbation from my boss, so welcome to the group
Thank you! And sorry for the inconvenience
can i re-join a group ?
Hi ezovic, since your outstanding game has been played I have approved your playtime on it and sent you a join request. Welcome back!
Hello can i join with option 1 Chaos Reborn last game i won
Hi costinel422, I am afraid you are not welcome to join.
Do I really need to explain you this?
Hint: using SAM which is against the group rules on a win you want to apply with to join the group might not be a good idea.
Hi admins, can I join?
I will choose option 1: But "The Walkind Dead" is the only game I won here, and I tried it right ater receiving the key. I really love the game but last 2 weeks, I was a bit too busy to finish it.
So, I will commit on finishing it now.
Thank you very much :D
Hi KennySex, sorry but The walking Dead will not work, in your case you can choose any unplayed win in your library, or do option 2
yep, this is too bad, I just won only that game here, can I play the game won from other places. If not, I think I'll be back with the option 2 when I got the chance soon, thanks a lot :D
For persons that have played all their wins, they're able to choose any game from their library, you can pick any that fits the requirements
yes, thanks a lot. I'll pick a game and let u know soon :D
Just a quick note: you have to comment the game here before you play it, but if you end up not liking the game you can change it to a different game no problem, you just need to let us know :)
hi there, second thought, I'd like to join with option 2. Is "Cities: Skylines" ok :)
Sure, you can do option 2 instead. Please request to join the group on Steam here and I will approve it as soon as I see it :)
yes, thanks a lot, request sent :)
Join request approved, welcome to the group :) Please make the giveaway as soon as possible.
thanks, sure now :)
Hello, I would like to re-join and will be completing option 1: Playing and completing a new game; Moon Hunters
If this game is not long enough, let me know and I'll pick something else :)
Hi Fenchurchk, for rejoining you don't need to play a new win but your outstanding win you had when you left the group (aka it got considered as a kick). Since it is a bit hard to judge how much it was actually played with no achievements, could you please upload some screenshots?
Which game was this? :)
Thats something you should probably know but here, its Chaos Reborn.
Well as I'm sure you know I can't view group GA's that I'm not a part of and I left all my groups when i took a break from here and trading so there was lots and just thought it would be easier to ask :)
I gave Chaos Reborn a good shot but really did not like it, although I did feel like I gave it time to try and get better (over 8 hours). I died multiple times at the start of the game and if you check the global achievements you can see that the highest gained achievement was only activated by 5% of players so this is obviously a problem that a LOT of people had.
I don't have any screenshots but would be happy to reinstall the game and take some new ones of my current position in the game if that is 100% required.
Despite this looking like a game that I would have enjoyed and despite having left the group (and all my groups) not long after winning this I feel I did try to honour my win and the group conditions anyway!
Wooops my bad, sorry. For some reason I thought you can still see the group wins even after you left the group but you indeed can't (which is stupid, but thats unrelated) but now I know.
Yea, I don't expect anyone got get any achievements for that game at all so no worries there, I would just like to see a couple of screenshots as the playtime itself was not tracked by the website after the initial 1,7 hours played since it was so long ago. After that you are more than welcome to rejoin the group again :)
Hey, got those screens for ya.
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2111459379 - This one shows exactly where I left off
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2111459411 - Tried to finish the battle and died
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2111459434 - This one is my current map progress
I uploaded them so you can see they are mine and not fakes, also current play time 0.1 hours, I didn't just play this now!
Perfect, thank you! Since you left by yourself I think you should be able to request on Steam to rejoin the group so please do that and I will approve it as soon as I see it. In case that you can't request to join send me a friend request instead and I will directly invite you that way :)
Added you :)
