I want to know how people sort their Steam games in the Steam Client, no how to do it. Right now I have 200 games and I put the installed games in "Favorites", created a category called "Good Games" for exactly what I consider good games. I have a "Crap" category and the games that not match Good nor Crap category are in "Games".

How do you all do it? I'm curious because I'm sure people are more neat and clean for these things than me lol

I use "favorites" for games I really like, or currently playing, a "steamgifts won" category, a "finished" category and a "crap" category.
I also use a category for games I want to play, but I need to upgrade first. Everything else is in "games".

I have over 2000 games now, but back when I had a few hundred, I started a filing system that has served me well all this time.

Basically I've got all the 'AAA' games filed by publisher. Then it's easy to know that assassin's creed games are under Ubisoft, etc. Then for the indie games I've got about 40 sub categories, broken down by specific genres. So for example, I have indie platformer - modern, indie platformer - old school, indie platformer - difficult, and indie platformer - metroidvania. When I get new games, I'll study the store page and file them according to where they go.

Then I always have a few categories for games I want to play soon, and another for games I need to grind on. And of course games can be in a few categories if I need to.

I find doing it this way, I never get stuck for what to play. I decide what genre I feel like playing, and then look in the categories.

Well if its make you feel batter, around 35% of it is steam trash games completed in 1 hour or less. On the other hand I dont put things like binding of isaac in there even though I have 300 hour in it because i didnt finished it properly yet.

A little sad to see Bejeweled 3 in "WTF IS THIS" since I used to play Bejeweled when match 3 didn't wasn't really a thing and bejeweled really kicked it off for every other game out there so even though it wasn't the first match 3 game, I remember it being a solid af game along with Zuma. I mean yeah you can find one anywhere nowadays but it's a great game regardless. Do you not enjoy games in that category or is it just a "meme" name? There's some other great things in there.

It means I have no way to categorize it, say, DON'T SHIT YOUR PANTS are scary games.
What would you say Bejeweled 3 is, Match 3? I'd have a make a whole new category for a single game for example.
WTF IS THIS? is just that, some games I have no idea what to label under or I have too few of to deserve a category of their own.
I play Bejeweled 3 a lot actually.
The only games I really don't like that much are under WHAT THE FUCK WAS I THINKING?

Alphabetically. I can't be bothered sorting 2000 games beyond that.

I have 6 categories:

  • Uncategorized (most games are here. So basically never played and unfinished games)
  • Unfinished (I no longer add games here. Used to add games I was in the middle of a playthrough for. The number of those games was too large and it seemed to demotivate me from playing them.)
  • Beaten (Games I've finished, but there are achievements that I haven't 100%d)
  • Completed (Games I've finished that have no achievements or that I have 100%d)
  • Won't Play (Games that are just so bad that I will not play them. Only has 15 games on it)
  • Watched (Solely for movies that I've watched.)

With Depressurizer. Easy categorizing by flag, tag, genre or year on the Steam store, even by HowLongToBeat times and average user score

With Auto-categorization or do you sort them on your own?

Edit: Didn't see your edit, sorry. Looks nice, maybe I'll try it

I pick out the categories that matter to me :D
Quick tutorial: Open Depressurizer while Steam is running. When you are done editing close Steam and then save your settings. If Steam is running it will overwrite the changes you made. Everything else is easy to figure out.

Oh and it can filter out multiple categories in your Library (Steam still can't do this) so I use it if I, for example, want to play a game in my Library that has both 'RPG' and 'Puzzle' tags but doesn't have the 'Online' one

The one downside is that any Library listing on Steam (other than Recent or the specific tag) will be chock-full of duplicates and basically unuseable, but that's the compromise xD

Great program, I used to use it., but if you have a huge library it'll take weeks to update.

First time takes longer but the general speed is acceptable for larger libraries. I update the list once a week (or whenever I get new games)

It's possible the servers the app is scraping data from has implemented some form of protection from DOS attacks and is blocking you after a certain amount of concurrent connections. I'd try updating by 100-200 games then waiting a minute just to be sure. To be fair that kind of stuff should be implemented in the app :D

Well, my library has several categories, such as:

  • ACTION / ADVENTURE IN 1ST PERSON
  • ACTION / ADVENTURE IN THE 3rd PERSON
  • RACE
  • SPORTS
  • REAL TIME STRATEGY
  • FREE (here I place the games that steam provides free, except the free that are online)
  • FIGHTING GAMES
  • ONLINE GAMES (here I place the games that work only online)
  • OPEN WORLD
  • PLATFORM
  • OTHER GENRES (here I place the Visual novel, point and click and other genres)
  • TERROR / SUSPENSE
  • ISONOMETRIC VISION

I also used the Depressurizer to do this

I personally let Depressurizer do all the work sorting the library for me.

Depressurizer is a program aimed at making it a bit easier to manage large Steam game libraries. It can auto-categorize your games for you. Currently, it does so based on data from that games' Steam store pages. It can use genres, Steam flags (like "Single-Player" and "Steam Cloud"), Steam tags, Developer & Publisher info, How Long to Beat times, year, and/or Steam review user scores. Auto-categorizing can be done manually or automatically via shortcut.

In addition to providing a way to quickly and easily modify games' assigned categories, it also lets you mark them as Favorites or as Hidden..

It also saves your configuration information independently of Steam, providing an automatic backup in the event that Steam loses your configuration.

I have "completed" category, a "favourites" category with games I haven't completed but want to, a "gifts" category for games that have been won or gifted to me, a "started" category for games I'm not sure I want to continue playing, but to remind me I have tried them. And the rest are pretty much unsorted.

I have considered using other stuff to sort my library, but my gameplay is eclectic, I never know what I will play next.

You know you can filter installed games only? So you don't need to put them in a category of their own.

I have plenty of categories, mostly genres of course, but there are also series for franchises with more than 4 games, tags for games that have an achievement for a specific date, categories for completion time, and recently I was curious about game engines and so far marked Unreal and Unity games. I mean it's that crazy.

I have three categories, one for perfect games(all achievements unlocked), another for games removed from Steam, and then the last one for broken games that either won't load up or don't work properly such as stupid shit like achievements not unlocking.

completed, later (for games I'm missing dlc for or haven't played the previous game in the series or early access or whatever), needs better pc (because my pc is shit) and the rest is uncategorized.

Games I play for extended periods or plan to finish the story I add to favorites
Rest are divided by genres I associate them with.
RPGs, First person shooters, third person open world, advanture (when im not sure where to put it) , action, hidden object games, simulators etc..
But still have a horrible mess there. I hope with the new update comes some improved sorting

Finished (for games I will never touch again barring new expansions/dlcs added)
Games I'm currently playing (self-explanatory)
Games (where all the untouched ones are automatically added to by Steam itself)

I just order my games in what type they are like story, rpg (only with that look of it), hogs and so on. Anything else just ends up in games so the more I play the more that gets put into order. The games I'm currently playing just gets a shortcut so I keep seeing it and won't just drop it that way. Since I use blaeo I have no real need to keep them in order but it makes it quicker for me to see what I have to play then open up the page and search through that
