Shame you cannot 'delete' things from Steam, as there has been many indie games from bundles that I simply found horrible-never-to-launch again, and they just sit in my steam library, ruining my achievement percentage, and filling up my trading card 'unfinished' list =p

Spot on. This was actually the main reason why I created a new Steam account some time ago. I wanted to swipe the slate clean and only link games to my account I will or plan to play. I'm very careful now which games are 'allowed' into my library. Some people have several Steam accounts just to properly manage their stuff: One main account, one for demos, one for TF2 item trading and so on. But that's not for me. I want one account to rule them all, but one I can manage and adjust just the way I like it and that's not possible at the moment. Categories are nice, but you can't even hide an unwanted purchase like in the Mac App Store and why should we not be able to delete crap games or demos? That was a great thing back in the good 'ol days of physical media: Don't like it? Sell it, give to someone else or put it in the dustbin. Easy peasy.

You know, on the other hand I feel like deleting games is like deleting money if you delete them from your Steam account. I'd be down with that more if they offered some kind of rebate.. even a small one. Demos on the other hand are fair game and should be deleted when you uninstall them.

Or even just steam wallet funds, or being able to trade/sell your games like items on the marketplace.

Somehow if that happened, though, I wonder if publishers would be more wary of participating in the extreme steam sales.

At the minimum, though Steam needs a refund policy comparable to Origin's.

Why not just not have the ones you don't ever care to play not installed, and have your library organized by installed games? What I do...

It's more a collector's sentiment. If I don't like a game or will never play it anyway, I don't want it in my collection. If that's the case with physical media, I usually give away unwanted games to someone who might like them. It's win-win for everyone. They have fun and I have the crap game out of my sight.

I dont keep everything I like, installed all at once, forever. Many times I clear out some nice games from the drive, but do intend to maybe replay them later in a few years. Usually I've reached 100% on the game, and simply do not need it using up disk space. So, uninstalling, then mixes it down with all kinds of random crap I don't ever want to "see" in my list again.

Out of sight, out of mind ;)

Really bugs me those games eat a huge 0% into my overall game completion rate with achievements =p

I fail to see how that's a problem. Especially since 1) Changing your list sorting to "installed" isn't permanent and 2) Making categories and doing it that way is always an option. If they are out of site and out of mind if sorted by installed then putting the games you bought but don't like into their own category and collapsing them should be just as out of mind as that.

As for the last thing, that too can be solved by being less obssesive compulsive about achievements. It's not like you can take those achievements to the grave with you. ;) ;)

All I see here is people being resistant to the options available to them.

One simple example: You want to try out a game, download the demo, play some time and get one or two achievements. But the game is crap and you decide to uninstall it. It will stay in your library forever and the 1% achievement percentage messes up your personal gaming statistics. But even if you like the game and you buy it -- the demo stays in your library and even the beta if you have participated. What a mess!

Apple lets you hide games and delete Game Center statistics if you like. That's user-oriented and convenient. Why can't Valve deliver such basic functions?

Because they don't HAVE too. They have mindless fanbois who kiss their ass at every turn and accept mediocrity as gospel. "Why improve if you think you are doing everything right?"

And yeah, even ORIGIN has the ability to hide games away you dont want/like anymore. And origin sucks!

I think this thread is outliving its usefulness when people are resorting to name calling. Mindless fanbois, really? I'm one of the only ones here trying to point out some solutions whether or not they are good enough for you. I might be many things but mindless is not one of them.

You've all been told how to hide away your games you don't want\like. Of course what you want is more than just hiding them away and the answers given are obviously not good enough for you. To recap the cold hard facts are:
  • Yes you can hide games in Steam via two ways or a combination of both (categories and by installed).

  • No you can't (easily) remove them completely.

  • Yes any stats you gained will stay in your account*.
Doing a quick google search I've noticed that people have had games removed from their library by Valve by request. Might take some arguing with support however and there seems to be some caveats with bundles: http://gaming.stacke...from-my-library

*I've never had steam support remove a game from my library so I don't know if this happens in that situation as well.

Perhaps if enough people request games be removed from their libraries then Valve will get the hint.  If you are interested in this then spread the word elsewhere.  Grassroots efforts are always noticed... though not always responded to.  But it won't get noticed unless there is a demand.  Tell your friends and have your friends tell friends.  If you want it, help get the ball rolling.

Well, that was bound to happen: shortly after I bought Guacamelee individually in expectation of the Mac version, it's part of the new Humble Bundle. :glare:

Other games included are:
Dust: An Elysian Tail
The Swapper
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dream

And for more than the average (currently $4.31), you also get Antichamber and Monaco.

Guacamelee, The Swapper and Antichamber all make their Mac and Linux debut. Giana Sisters has no Mac or Linux versions yet, but they are promised for "later this year".

Once again, a game I talked myself out of buying (Monaco) is now in my possession because the price fell below my ability to resist buying it. Looking forward to trying that and Antichamber.

New Humble Bundle. It's noteworthy because it contains Mac and Linux versions of Outlast (excellent survival horror), La-Mulana (very good jump and run) and the Shadow Warrior remake.

Shadow Warrior and Outlast alone seem like a great deal @ 5 bucks each basically with anything else I wind up liking pure bonus. That's my kind of bundle.
