    By getting your games back, do you mean being able to install them again or getting any saves back? – user114997 Aug 10 '15 at 19:16

    When looking at your library, are you sure you do not have 'Installed' selected? You will need to have either 'Games' or 'Recent' or almost any other category selected to see uninstalled games. – DJ Pirtu Aug 10 '15 at 19:44
  • You just need to log in. After that Steam will sync itself and you will be able to download any game that you've owned previously. This does not incluse shortcuts to non-stesm games – BlueWizard Aug 10 '15 at 22:01

All games that are purchased through steam are stored in your steam library. If you log into the program using your username and password (after reinstalling steam) all of your games will be available for download there!

If you are sure that you are logged into the correct account, and don't have "installed" selected in your library (thanks @DJPirtu), try reinstalling steam. If this still doesn't work contact steam support.

    @JamieBarnes Yes, Steam will take quite a while to get back to you, but if you have proof of purchase they can indeed give you your games back. However, it's more likely that you have just missed something when logging in and/or browsing your games. – DJ Pirtu Aug 10 '15 at 19:47
