Hate A Game In Your Steam Library? Well Now You Can Straight Up Remove It
I think we all have games in our Steam libraries that we regret. We probably bought them because they were incredibly cheap or they were part of some ‘amazing’ bundle, but deep down we feel really uneasy seeing them with our games.
If you’ve ever felt this way about a game, your only option used to be to hide the game from sight. It’s now possible to remove any association a game may have with your Steam account in order to clear your conscious.

There are some terrible games on Steam and no matter how hard you try at least one of them will appear in your Steam library.Be it something like Bad Rats or even Secret of the Magic Crystal, these games exist and will find their way into your library.
This is why Steam will now let you remove such abominations from your account, without a refund of course.
By going to Steam’s help site, you will be able to request the removal of a game from your account. This will will then have the game removed from your account, without a refund. Removal of a title will also remove any other products associated with the key from your account. This means that trying to remove a single game from your account that was part of a bundle key will remove all the other games from that bundle that that game was part of. The removal page will however show you everything that will be removed with your selected title so just be sure to pay attention to this process should you ever feel the need to do so.
While I don’t think this feature is really all that necessary, I guess there are people out there who feel strongly about this. Personally, I would rather just hide the game in my library because completely removing access to the game without any compensation feels silly.
