Introduction


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 1000 members and over 25000 historical giveaways.

Group rules


  • You need to set and keep your Steam privacy settings for My profile and Game details public (example);
  • You will play all giveaways you win via this group within one month;
  • When creating a giveaway it is recommended to include a small group rule reminder in your giveaway, something like: "This is a Playing Appreciated giveaway, by joining you commit to playing this game within a month when won.".

How to join


  1. Make sure you did not violate any SteamGifts rules in the last month;
  2. Comment one of the two options to enter the group in this discussion:
    • Option 1: Showing your commitment by playing a previous won game on SteamGifts that you did not yet play. The game shouldn't be very short and must have achievements. Comment with the name of the game before you start playing it and comment again when you finished playing it. Please upload some screenshots to Steam as well.
    • Option 2: Supporting the cause by creating a group giveaway of a game that you would like to see getting played by other group members within a month as soon as your membership request was approved. The game should not have been given away free before (marked by ** when creating a giveaway on SteamGifts).
  3. Press "Request To Join" on our group page;
  4. Wait for us to approve your request, we'll always reply on the comment you have made in this topic.

Final notes

Hi 4321231, I assume you wanna join because your message doesn't really make sense. You already applied twice and failed to beat the games both times. I don't have any hope this time will be different so the answer is going to be a no.

Also, I think it's important to note, you shouldn't just be playing to get a certain amount of playtime (the tool even checks for idling). Instead play to enjoy the game, and the playtime should come with that.

Option 1 for now, but I like when my better giveaways ends up played so there will be giveaways too ofc:-):
not sure what "not very short" means, for me that is up to 6-10h, might be different for you guys, but the next won game i plan to play:
-This is Zodiac Speaking
-Tsique

If one of them not enough, then ill apply with both.
Yes, i have a lot of unplayed from past, but until sometime 2020 i entered more than the games i want to play, now i just enter what i would like to play sooner or later.

Hi Csontzuzo, very short is games up to an hour or so. It is mostly there to disqualify those games you can just beat in 5 minutes that generally spam you with achievements.

Either This Is the Zodiac Speaking or TSIOQUE will do fine. Let me know when you beat one of them.

I'll probably play my first won giveaway in the last 4 months. Since I intend to complete the game, it should take me 6-7 hours to finish it.

Once that is done, then I can get back to you on this matter.

Hello,

Coming with an update for the game. As you can seen based on the Screenshot's, I've finished the game just a couple of minutes ago.

Since I've finished it, I also taken the time to write an Review for it.

I must say it is quite a weird title, but I'm glad I've played it. It wasn't too bad, but not the greatest game I've played. I can firmly say that it deserves it's reviews.

A lot of your achievements are all unlocked at the same time. Do you have any explanation for that?

That doesn't make sense. Looking at others people achievements those achievements don't unlock like that at the end of the game. Unless you can prove with screenshots that they are legitimately unlocked you are not welcome to join the group.

Comment has been collapsed.

They have not unlocked at the end of the game, not all of them. Some of them are collectables, like Blood Coins. After I finished the game, I am able to reload and go for areas I want before I beat the boss.

I will attach here the screenshots with end of credits and scene, although it will act as spoiler for whoever wants to play the game. Aside from this, I have achievements inside the game that you can't fake. They would not work otherwise. Please have a look at the additional attachments.

Screenshots

Please let me know if you need something else. I can record my gameplay if that still doesn't prove I've finished the game.

I'm not accusing Vasharal here, just throwing out a theory. Perhaps loading up a 100% save from the internet would result in the achievements being unlocked in this manner?

But hltb says completionist takes 7.5 hours but they took 2.5 hours when taking into account idling time. Again, not accusing, just putting that out there as well.

It was my whole gameplay alone, I can tell the whole story of the both games I've just played. I don't see the point of loading up a save. I'm trying to get things the right way. Why would I want to risk my own imagine for a group entry or reputation here.

I haven't gotten around looking at any of this yet, but I will just say that the screenshot is straight up BS. First of all it is different from game to game when they trigger achievement unlocking, second of all unless they are answering for a very specific game a save file can definitely have info about what acheoevents have been unlocked, its up to the devs to say what goes in them. I have seen with my own 2 eyes achievement unlock by using a different save file.

Ok, and you're assuming that's what I did for the game? I've also taken the time to write a review too? Look, I'm not trying to create this whole situation into an complete argument. I don't think that's the point of this thread.

Option 1: Showing your commitment by playing a previous won game on SteamGifts that you did not yet play. The game shouldn't be very short and must have achievements. Comment with the name of the game before you start playing it and comment again when you finished playing it. Please upload some screenshots to Steam as well.

Nowhere states I have to have the game to 100% completion when it comes to achievements.Yet I feel like the whole paranoia about this is due to that.

I haven't gotten around looking at any of this yet, but I will just say that the screenshot is straight up BS.
Please upload some screenshots to Steam as well.

This combats what you said. If the screenshots are BS, what's the point asking people to take them?

Hopefully after this whole conversation there's no hard feelings in place. But I feel like you don't want me to join and that's fine. But I don't like being accused of something I've not done wrong. I've got all resources and I can bring more to the plate to just prove it, you just have to ask. If you need a video of my next play, I'll record myself and place it over YT.

I see, I've checked in-depth and it's true, some games do have achievements unlocked if you get the save. But that doesn't mean I've done that. Is there something else I can provide for its validity?

Would you like me to explain the whole story, even as weird as it was? You can ask me hidden things within the game over a live chat, so I wouldn't have time to make my research and tell you what I remember. The game is still fresh in my mind.

Feel free to add me on Steam where we can chat. If you'd not mind. I honestly don't have a problem.

Sorry for the late reply. Thank you for actually reminding me of that as an option in general. I think in all the years I been an admin in PA I only had one case where a save file came into play so that is not something that generally even crosses my mind.

Hello Mouse!

Coming back again with a new update. Just finished Figment as well. The game was a lot longer than previous one, but I've managed to get it to completion as well. If that still doesn't prove it, I don't know what else will.

I can only invite you to play more games and hunt for achievements and you'll notice that not all, but some of them have at least 1-2 achievements unlocks at the same time.

Here you have Screenshots as well as proof, although using F12 doesn't seem to record my achievements won, but you can see that I progress through the campaign. Warning though, spoiler alert!

Just to make another remark, there's collectable achievements that unlock in the same time with another.

I'll be going for my second game and probably I'll pick Figment as it's a lot shorter to complete. Alternatively, I could go for Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair. I intend to finish them. I've got other won games, but I doubt I can finish simulation games in time and they may take too much time to complete.

Do I need to have all achievements to 100%? Or that's not a requirement.

I will answer here as it this has just become a mess of replies.

Thank you for the screenshots, I appreciate you providing those. Even with those I have decided against accepting you into the group. I never doubted the legitimacy of you actually beating the game, it is simply the achievements that were unlocked after that were my concern. Even ignoring those at this point I have multiple other concerns that ultimately add up to me saying no.

1)

I can only invite you to play more games and hunt for achievements and you'll notice that not all, but some of them have at least 1-2 achievements unlocks at the same time.

If you don't think I have any idea what I am doing looking at achievements/playtimes then I don't want to be judging your playtimes. You should have done yourself a favour and looked at my Steam profile (or BLAEO or HLTB) before saying that because I am pretty sure I played and completed a game or 2 more than you. Even ignoring that I been an admin of this group for 4(?) years now and have approved/rejected 1000s of playtimes (I am not above making mistakes and I have and will own up to them, but there is no mistake in your achievements raising up a lot of red flags, I think pretty much anyone would agree with me here), do you really think I am not aware of the fact that some achievements can be achieved at the same time? There just is a difference between achievements that can/should be unlocked at the same time and achievements that shouldn't. And the ones in your case shouldn't.

2)

Nowhere states I have to have the game to 100% completion when it comes to achievements.Yet I feel like the whole paranoia about this is due to that.

Nope, you don't have to but if you do it will all get taken into account. There is no paranoia going on here, it is just making sure just making sure all adds up. I will question anything I find that doesn't add up, no matter who the person playing is. There is plenty of people who have been asked for explanations and screenshot for anything odd I found (most of the time it luckily turns out to be nothing, but not always). I owe that much to GA creators to make sure their wins are played properly. And well, if you think that is paranoia, well, this is not the right group for you.

3)

But I feel like you don't want me to join and that's fine.

I honestly feel quite offended at that statement. 1st as I said above I will check for literally anything that doesn't add up, you are by far not the only one. The playtime can be done by someone I like or someone I hate I will question it the same exact way no matter who they are. Hell there is someone in the group who has literally went full on creep mode on me and I haven't actually kicked him out even I could because he simply hasn't broken any group rules. So if you think I am playing any favourites games here think again. And 2nd I literally have 0 reason why I wouldn't want you in particular to join, the only interaction I had with you before was very pleasant.

4)

I've requested. If I find giveaways of games I wishlisted or want to play, I'll definitely be more than happy to play the game right away or within the 1 month's time.

Why did I quote this? Because it makes me think you didn't bother to read the instructions how to you as point 2. very clearly states to say with which option you want to join. It is not something I hold will against anyone (especially if English is not their first language) unless I have some other reasons, but it sure doesn't give a lot of hope that said person will actually read the full rules as to how much is required of them (not) to do to stay in the group. I would like to add here that I am not trying to accuse you that you 100% didn't read the instructions, thats why I just said it "makes me think" and the thing about not reading the rest of the rules is just a generalisation about what tends to happen from my experience.

So to TL;DR this wall of text: I do believe you beat the game just fine, I don't know what happened with the achievements after because what you say/screenshot show vs the achievements don't add up. But I am not saying no because of that, I am saying no because of the rest of the reasons stated above. There is another couple of things that didn't quite sit well with me, but they didn't influence my decision on this and this is already too much of a wall of text.

Edit: I would also like to say sorry for the wait time on the answer. It took me a while to have the time to sit down and properly read through the comments, look at things and think about it (and even then I had to write the answer in multiple parts as time caught up to me).

Hello Mouse,

Thank you for taking the time to give me an answer on the matter. Although I feel we both misunderstood each other and we took the message the wrong way. I hope that above all this, no hard feelings were taken in the matter.

At the time I've written those messages, I felt there was something you've been trying to pick on so you'd have a reason to not invite me, so even if you felt offended by the fact that I've said that I felt you don't want me, it's true. I felt you didn't wanted me in.

I apologize for all the inconveniences you'd have to put up with and I appreciate what you've said.

I hope that in some other circumstances whatever encounters we have remain pleasant and weather you've decided to invite me or not know that it should not affect me.

Do know, that I've not intended to disrespect you by all means. I hope that in the future, you'll reconsider my entry.

Thank you once again for your time! 😀

PS: If you wish to add me on Steam and chat any time, I'm happy to do so. 😄

There's no pressure at all. I can come back a while later and remind you. In fact, if you don't mind, I'll add you as friends and if it's okay. I will contact you and if needed I will reapply here. Thank you for your response.

Is there any screenshots you can take showing your progress into the game? Other than that I can see the achievements so no problems there :)

I'm interested in joining through option 1, but I have a few concerns:

  • I'm new
  • I've only won one game (already played and finished, but it's short and doesn't have achievements)
  • How much of a role does total playtime play? My playtime may be (sometimes greatly) inflated because I idle/semi idle certain types of games often due to the nature of my work and don't want to give the impression that I'm artificially inflating playtime
  • How much of a role do achievements play? I don't actively seek achievements and am more likely to miss some of the ones that are not strictly linked to progress (in fact, I avoid looking at them before finishing the game because they ruin my experience).
  • What happens if I enter for a game I think I'll like, but it turns out that I don't?

If any of the above disqualifies me, would it be possible to re-apply if the issue can be remedied?

Hi amusedmonkey, let me go through everything one by one:

I'm new

That is not a problem at all. If you have any questions about how anything works you are more than welcome to ask :)

I've only won one game (already played and finished, but it's short and doesn't have achievements)

In that case for option 1 you can pick any unplayed game with achievements you own on Steam instead and beat that.

How much of a role does total playtime play?

For the most part we got tools that can detect idling and can judge how many of the achievements that you should have gotten in an X amount of playtime you actually got to kinda estimate how much it was actually played.

How much of a role do achievements play?

There can be a little bit of case by case basis here since every game does achievements differently so things get adjusted due to that, but we don't require people to get achievements that are missable. And if the achievements are all missable/don't show progress well I might just ask the person playing to take some screenshots showing the progress instead. I could write an essay about Steam achievements at this point, but I think the proper answer to your question is simply that progress related achievements only are enough.

What happens if I enter for a game I think I'll like, but it turns out that I don't?

There is a minimum amount that needs to be played regardless if you end up liking the game or not, but past that point you are more than free to drop the game. The minimum in described under the first point in the FAQ.

If any of the above disqualifies me, would it be possible to re-apply if the issue can be remedied?

None of what you said disqualifies you. You are welcome to join with option 1, you just need to let me know which game you are gonna play (that fits what I said above) before you start playing it :)

Does The Hex qualify? It's next on my "to-play" list.
