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 800 members and over 9000 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 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!

Hello. I liked the idea of the group and I hope I can get to join so I can play more games, even though I rarely perfect a game, but I try my best until I get enough of a game.
I applied for the group and if my application got rejected, I'd happily like to know what did I do wrong
thanks :D

I have a few games saved up I've been wanting to give away to the group so I will be able to make some nice giveaways soon if you'll have me. :)

Hi Sariaaa! Thanks for commenting again, of course you are welcome to join. I've checked out your previous comment and I'm sorry that you did not get a reply to it. I've approved your application now, based on playing Rogue'n'Roll for option one. Nice screenshots too. ^^ Welcome to the group!

Thank you! ^_^

And hahaha I was too busy trying to stay alive to get a screenshot during actual gameplay so had to settle for YOU DIED :P
I'm glad I can get rid of them now! Also it's actually a fun game despite the low production value so I will have another crack at it :)

I recently won Conan Exiles (3 weeks ago) and started playing today but forgot to comment before I entered the game. Is is still enough to apply for Option 1?
I'd like to believe it's believable (heh) since the very first crafting achievement is showed unlocked today, that's kinda hard to forge otherwise :p

I never got a reply here so I'm just wondering if I need to do something again or is waiting like a week or something a normal thing for the applications (which if it is that's ok I'm just confused).

Hello :)
I would like to join using option number 2 because I didn't won games yet haha. I was looking for something like that, I want to make real players (try to avoid bots) happy with my gifts, I try to select them carefully sometimes even asking participants what is their preference because that's the spirit of giveaways for me.

With my computer fixed and running, I decided to try and join this group! Is Superbrothers: Sword and Sorcery EP an acceptable option to play and join? :)
