ABOUT Removed Games Collectors

For Those With A Collection of the Unavailable

This is a place for those who have a moderately large collection of removed games (games no longer available for purchase on steam) to gather. For most, this group will just be about the name, showing off that you own what others no longer can. For others, it can be a resource to find what you once believed could no longer be found.

The group chat will always be open, so feel free to hop in if you see people and have questions or information you want to provide. With the current chat system, you'll need to use the invite link here to join if you are not already a group member.

Group Requirements:
200 Removed Games and Purchase Disabled Games Combined (According to our scanner[], your profile and game details must be set to public here).
No Vac Ban
No Game Ban
No Trade Ban
No Trade Probation
No Community Ban
No Marks on Steamrep

After discussing the idea with a few of the more active members as well as the group moderators, we've decided to make an exception to the removed game count requirement (the others stand regardless) under one very specific case. If you are verified as the developer of a game or piece of software that has been removed from steam or are a representative of a publisher that has removed a game from steam, you will also be allowed to request an invite, as this seems to be the next best step that our group can take. Discussions and the sharing of valuable information publicly has always been the most important aspect of this group, and direct representative feedback seems to the most effective way to improve the group as a whole.

Note: Developer/Publisher requests have to be approved, do not expect automatic acceptance.

If you meet the above requirements, create a thread here listing your removed games or find me in the Removed Games Collectors group chat and you'll get your invite as soon as possible.

UPDATE: As a result of the new group request feature, you are now able to request an invite to this group directly through the group page. Please only make the request if you meet the requirement, as you can only do this once to prevent users from spamming closed groups, and make sure your profile is public in order for me to check your current removed game count.

UPDATE 2: Please, if you're not even close to the current requirement, do not request to join the group. At first I tried to keep on top of requests and responded to them daily, but at this point I'm getting around one hundred requests per week from people who don't even come close to the requirement, most less than ten removed games owned. Currently the amount of requests accepted is close to 3% of the total received, which only causes more delays for those who are actually ready to join.
[GROUP INFO] Yearly Group Update
  1. Install the Augmented Steam extension in your preferred web browser.
  2. At the top of any Steam page, next to your notifications, click the Augmented Steam drop down menu. Select Options.
  3. On the left menu, select Community, followed by Profile. You should see a list of checkboxes under "Show profile links to".
  4. At the end of the list, you should see a blue box that says "Add custom link". Click it.
  5. For name and icon, you can use whatever you like. For name I use Removed Game Scan (Tracker), and the icon is currently having issues. For the link, use the following (without the quotes), "[ID]". Do not add https:// or www. to the beginning of the link, those will be added automatically when the link is generated on profile pages.
  6. Your settings should be saved automatically, so when you're done, you can close the tab.

For those of you who do not have Augmented Steam installed, you can find the installation info for your browser here:

Post Format Example:

Finally I'm here. It was hard to collect 200 removed games in 2020. Prices are high for now. :Dosh:
