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.

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 Floydinator, one of the group rules is to keep your profile public and without you doing so I can't even check if you fulfill all other requirements. So if you would like to join please put your profile to public.

Hi McInverse, please read the instructions how to join and then let me know how you would like to join (and if you would like to join with option 1 which game it is going to be). Also please note that this group is not about winning a bunch of games but about playing the ones you win.

I'd love to join this group, it would certainly motivate me (force me :P ) to play games I won.

Hi, Reforced and MouseWithBeer!

I've known this group for a long time now, but I hadn't asked to participate because I was focused on studies until last month (and then I couldn't commit to any game or anything else in life besides studying). Well, now I've graduated and would be happy if I could join the group too.

The last two games I played in the last few days were Basement and Evoland Legendary Edition, that I'll play for a few more days, until I get all the achievements. After finishing Evoland I intend to resume Train Valley 2 (which I stopped before reaching 100%, but I want to complete, because it's a very challenging game) and only then start new games. I don't know if this is enough to fulfill this requirement (the Option 1 says I have to pick a game that I haven't played yet, but I started both very recently: Basement on June 22nd and Evoland early last week, so...), If not, I will play State of Mind within 30 days.

I should only request group membership after receiving a message here, right? Well, in a few days I'm going to post my progress on State of Mind here. : )

Cheers!

Hi rurnhani, as you pointed out yourself the game has to be unplayed before you apply to join so neither of those games would work. State of Mind works perfectly fine tho. Let me know once you beat it.

If not, I will play State of Mind within 30 days.

The one month rule doesn't apply for this game, it only applies for the games you have won from the group. If it takes you more than 30 days to beat it, it is fine.

I should only request group membership after receiving a message here, right?

You can request it whenever, but it won't be approved till you actually beat the game.

I hope that clears everything up, if you have any questions feel free to ask :)

And congrats on graduating!

Hello MouseWithBeer, I'd like to join as option 2. My first giveaway will be Quantum Conundrum, a puzzle game which I've platinum way back when in the PS3 era and that I enjoyed a lot!
I've just sent a join request on Steam and will be awaiting for your verdict. Thank you!
