Minutes ago I asked Do removed games still count towards Achievements Status on Steam?

The answer sadly is yes.

So is it possible to list all my removed games on Steam?

EDIT: These games are not in my library, in the past i removed them using https://help.steampowered.com/ (I relinquished the license/returned for refund/deauthorized) so I need to buy to play again

EDIT and Solution:

The solution I found was see my history of cards sold on market, there is listed at least the removed games that contains steam cards but free-to-play

  • You can still see all the games you played to in your game time. – Ise Feb 16 '17 at 15:34
  • Where? Each time i removed a game, it doesn't appear anymore on lib, game list or anywhere in steam official site even in purchase and product key activations history – anisanwesley Feb 16 '17 at 15:39

    Nope, @Yorik I'm not telling about steam client. I' dont "uninstall" the game but I removed that using help.steampowered.com. If i want play, i'll need to buy again. But where that games are listed? – anisanwesley Feb 16 '17 at 15:48

    I just tried the suggestion and it doesn't seem to work. I bought a game a while ago and refunded it, I can't then see it under my All Games activity. However Steam does keep some sort of record of time played because another game I refunded (and have subsequently re-purchased) shows the amount of time I did play it. I figured it might have been some form of caching, but this is a new PC so it's not a file stored locally... unless steam cloud factors into time played? – MattR Feb 16 '17 at 17:53

    I'm going to say the only way to find this information out is to look at your steam transaction history. – Timmy Jim Feb 16 '17 at 17:53

Steam does not offer a way of viewing these games natively. There are, however, some things you can do:

  • When buying games, you receive an email from Steam. Search your email for
    from:noreply@steampowered.com purchase --community 
    or in other words, emails sent by noreply@steampowered.com with the keyword "purchase" and without "community" (market) in it.
  • If you did buy a game via other means, your email likely has emails with the keywords "steam" and "key" in it.
  • An untested method would be to use the steam web api to iterate over all apps they have in store. This may or may not be against their TOS (I haven't read that closely). To find those app ids you may use a site like steamdb. Steamdb has a little over 53k games in their database, which is a big but not unmanagable task. I don't know if GetPlayerAchievements does actually display achievements for games deleted from your account, but it is worth a try.
  • Wow, great idea. I am a software developer, I will try to do something using the Steam API as soon as I have some free time.Thank you so much – anisanwesley Feb 17 '17 at 11:37
  • if you have a SteamID for me to test I'd like to test that API idea. Any idea roughly what game would be removed though? There might be more ways for it to work, though it seems @anisanwesley has looked into quite a few in this answer – Codingale Feb 20 '17 at 11:39
  • Here i've got the steamID: steamid.io and Steam api key can be getten here: steamcommunity.com/dev/apikey just replace the values on urls to that you want,Good luck, I'm still hopeful – anisanwesley Feb 20 '17 at 14:20

Late to the party but maybe it can help someone else.

Deleted games for which you unlocked one or more achievements still appear in the achievement showcase on your profile. When you're trying to add an achievement there, in the list of game you should see those deleted games though when you select them, there won't be any achievement to display.


I tried using the Steam API as @Sumurai8 said, using this "all games list". I was writing many ways to get removed games achievements, but unfortunately there is no way to get them. That's all that Steam responds to me when the game is removed:

    "playerstats": {
        "error": "Requested app has no stats",
        "success": false

At least you can retrieve them using help.steampowered.com, but to get a list of removed games you must remember one by one

Thank you all for your help

  • Nice try! But, this is more of a comment on the other answer. You should summarize it, and post it as so. You could probably get rid of the code as well. – Timmy Jim Mar 7 '17 at 14:18
