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


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 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.

Well, finished Tsioque on 27th but was a 3h long game only so wanted to wait with "press request" until i play This is the Zodia Speaking too but some other stuffs came up, double exp weekend on Sea of Thieves too so i guess ill delay it until next weekend, but as you said one enough i still pressed the join request.

I have wanted to join this group for a long time because sometime when i have some good games, i want the winner to play it but the only group i can trusted is "Play the game you won". So i want to apply to this group with option 2 (at least for now) so i can share my GAs to more people. Thank you.

I am afraid it is not possible. There are events around SG and BLAEO that rely on people playing their wins/games, so you might wanna check those out if you enjoy that :)

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.

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.

Playing Blood Knights will do fine (note: 2,6 hours of idle time), let me know once you beat the game!

Yes, that was due to my Card farming, so don't count that as part of my time spent. I have plenty of games idled just for that and it's good that it's not ruining the percentage.

I assumed as much and there is no problem with it. I am just noting down to know it was there before you decided to play the game :)

Some of the games I've won I've been surprised, to say the least, and were not on my wishlist to be honest, but I do intent on playing slowly my wishlist and library games, good or bad as they are.
