In a not really publicly announced change, Steam has now given its users the ability to delete games instead of simply hiding them in your library.
There are a few caveats to this little tweak. First, and this should go without saying, but just in case, uninstall the game before you delete it. Otherwise, the local data will still be sitting on your PC for no reason what so ever. Second, no Steam is not offering refunds or anything like that should you choose to delete a game. This is something for those of us who have games that we know for sure that we are never, ever going to play again.
Everyone got it? Never, ever. Okay good, now to the nitty gritty. Here’s what you do.
Go into Steam and click on the help section. Select Steam Support from the helo menu, and then “Games, Software, etc.” This should bring up a list of all of your games. Select the game that you don’t want anymore and then click the option that says “I want to permanently remove this game from my account.” It’ll ask if you’re sure, so you know, be sure and then confirm the delete. And voila! The game will be deleted.
All of you out there with massive libraries full of games that you tried and hates, you’re welcome.
