Steam Adds the Option to Permanently Delete Games from your Library




/ 4 years ago

There’s always that one game in your Steam library. Whether you got it on sale thinking it would be good for the price, as a joke with you racking up hundreds of hours on it only for your friends to ridicule you, or even the one a friend got you, just so it’d be in your library forever after you dared play it once. Well now there’s a way to hide your game shame beyond just stashing it in a folder and hoping for it to never see the light of day again, with Valve adding the new option to permanently remove games entirely from your Steam account to their customer support.

Easily accessed by visiting Steam’s support page, followed by ‘games, software, etc’ and then the entry in your library you want to wish a permanent goodbye to. Go through the motions and you’ll find yourself free of it for good. Keep in mind that this isn’t a hide function, nor a refund, anything you remove here is gone for good with no compensation. The feature isn’t perfect either, with any games gotten through bundles requiring you to remove the entire bundle along with it, so the folder of shame may not be retired just yet.

Are you planning to purge any stains on your Steam library? Let us know in the comments below if you want to give that purchase of shame one last moment of light before it’s gone for good.
