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 just group my games by categories: Backlog, Indie, Asset-flips that i will never play. That's pretty much all i do.

I'm waaayyyy too late in my collection to start grouping crap together. I just stick with listing as "Installed" and just pick random stuff when I'm feeling like something new.

Too much... stuff I'm currently playing, want to finish, started, put down, specific friends who own that game, and then by genre.

Honestly the interface of Steam library filters is so much better, I wish Steam would just do something like that.

Or you could try Depressurizer , it automatically put your games by genre ... i have used and makes a good job if you have alot of games !

I used depressurizer - Sorted by How long it takes to beat the game. Kind of as a way that I can tackle a bit of my backlog and choose depending on the time I have! Otherwise I also added Multiplayer, Current and Completed Categories.

Oof, I have a bit of a hybrid going on right now: Dropped, F2P, Finished, On hold, Plan to play soon, Played (pre-steam), Playing, Playing (endless), Prototypes, Software, Stuck, and uncategorized for everything else.
It started as a copy of how MAL works but I added some categories and I have been questioning how useful it really is for some time.

So far I've only separated them into the VN category and the rest is still in it's original by name order.

I use my favourite to find games i enjoy playing.

I mark every game as a favourite when I add it to my Steam library. Then I unmark it when I play it. I've found this to be the easiest way of marking the games I haven't played, then removing them from favourites as I play them.

Unless I'm marking newly added games, or looking through my favourites to decide what to install, I leave my Steam set to only show installed games.

As for further categorization, the way I see it is that if I can't remember a game after having played it, it's not a game I'm going to want to play again.

By the year of the original release date + few custom categories to not forget about specific games I'm planning to take a look eventually

The categories I use are:

  • Crap
  • Finished
  • VR (i.e. not relevant at the moment)
  • Multiplayer-Only (Don't like these)
  • Retro (For games I keep for nostalgic reasons. Don't intend to play these, but they are not crap)
  • Old Version / Copy (For games you get both old & renewed version.)

All the rest are games I'm either currently playing, intend to play in the future or started playing in the past, and may return to in the future.

Not hidden: unbundled games and SG wins.

2k+ games. I try, but it's a bit of a mess.
Mainly I go Installed > ( Playing ) and never leave.
Will lurk this thread for suggestions.

It's a bit weird that it does not exist yet. In this day and age. Fingers crossed 🤞
