Steam adds game deletion option

Posted on December 4, 2015 by Fionna Schweit

Many people find themselves regretting a spur of the moment steam purchase, knowing that that game will stay in the see-through grey text of a game that is not installed taking up space for the rest of time you have a Steam account. No more, Steam will now allow users to delete games. This option while it may seem frivolous is huge for many people who like to keep extremely organized and not have large gaps in their Steam library. I mean, how many of us have literally 100 uninstalled games we have 0 hours playing? Just me? oh…. well if like me you just cant resist a good sale this new feature might be a much wanted one.

The new feature was discovered by a Neogaf user  and seems to functional right now. Removing games is a simple matter of choosing Help, Steam Support, selecting the offending game and banishing it into oblivion with the button labelled “I want to permanently remove this game from my account”. This is a far cry for the pervious method of even attempting to have games removed from the list which involved a ticket to steam support and a lot of hope and crying.
