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 850 members and over 14500 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.

Hey lazej, well option 2 doesn't require you to win anything. But you can also pick any uplayed games with achievements from your Steam library for option 1. Just let me know which one you picked before you start it and put your playtime information to public. Here in the second paragraph is how to do it in case you don't know.

Hello, can I join this group? I'd like to choose 1st option because I have won 4 games on steamgifts and played all of them (I made screenshots from all of these games). First game I have already finished is "Penarium".
Second game which I'm playing when I'm in school is "League of Evil" and I'd like to get 100% achievements on this one.
The rest are "HIVESWAP: ACT 1" and "Puddle" but they are not that interesting as I expected them to be, so I probably won't finish them.
This is how the things looks like, can I join the group? :D

Hi Martibsir, you are welcome to join the group however games that have been started before the application sadly don't count. However since you do not have any unplayed win, you can pick an unplayed game with achievements from your library instead. Let me know how you would like to proceed.

Thanks for your response. So all I need to do is to choose any game from my library and complete it, right? So, probably my next game will be "Spyro: Reignited Trilogy" but I think I will start playing it in 2 weeks, so when I finally complete it, I'll reply to your message. :)

Hello, I would like to join the group,
I can see, I requested to join this group in the past but that must be a long time ago, I don't really know why my request was declined,
If I can have another try, I'd like to go for option #1, don't have many unplayed wins, but I would like to give another shot to DarkEnd because I can see I didn't play it after the tutorial. I will wait to know if that's alright and I'll dive in it to finish, thankss!

Hi FlorentiNN, it was rejected because you never commented in this thread. I took a look at your wins and it looks like at least 1/4 of your wins are not played:

Games with any Playtime 68.6% (83/121)

Games with ≥1 Achievement 53.1% (43/81)

Therefore please pick one of those to play.

Hello, I was wondering if I could have a week or two extension on playing my last two wins (they were won within a couple days). I'm in college and its currently midterm season, so I haven't had that much time to play them, especially both games are pretty lengthy.
