Yeah, but from what I've seen support doesn't get back to some people before then.

and even then it's just all the more reason to go hijack someone's account.

A limit could be good. Like you cant remove more than one game per day

I've tried demos and games I'm not so proud of after the fact. And purging all visible traces from my entire account would be nice. Perhaps an option to restore stats if I reconsidered and bought the game again. Although, I imagine maintaining those 'invisible' stats would be nontrivial.

In the past I've had an account completed deleted to get rid of games I no longer want. It seems excessive when Valve could just add a removal option with or without stats purging.
Demos that are deleted from your library do not appear again.

Here is a template for you all. It works however, they accidentally removed my CS:S and CS when I just wanted CS removed.

Imagine someone removes your MW3 or any other expensive game. You won't smile that day.

I think the most Steam might implement is a hide function so the game wouldn't show anywhere installed or uninstalled unless one chose to unhide it. Kinda like hidden files are in Windows.

Section 13 IIRC of the SSA says you can terminate a game license or "subscription" at any time you want to.

While this is certainly true it rarely happens. My suspicion is Steam is terrified of removing games only to find out later the account was hacked and they screwed up. The safety of the many out weighs the wants of a few is probably how it works in reality.

My guess is if you want to spend the money on a lawyer it's probably no problem removing the game.

Everytime I've done it I've been asked security questions first, and had to state in multiple tickets that it is what I want.

I've asked three times now, twice I got told no, but then asked what games when I asked them why they are not sticking to the SSA we (Valve and myself) agreed to.


but yes, you are right, it's one of them gray area's that looks like it has no uniform policy even through it should.

Yes, most likely if you are wanting it bad enough to persist then you shall be rewarded but other wise no.

Think that if you have games that you don't like but Valve starts a special christmas event on Steam, you'll probably need that games to get free tickets and free DLCs and games (like summer event).

I have had this same idea, and thought of a safer alternative - hiding games. You could have a View -> Hidden Games button so that hidden games are not "gone", you can go un-hide them that way. However, when you're not in that view they appear to be gone.

Edit: I see someone else posted the same idea - more support FTW.

Hidden would be ideal, but that is giving the user a choice... I'd wager right now for £5 that Valve will never do it.
