Organizing Steam

This is day 14 of Blaugust.

Today on Knifesedge Blogs, there was some commentary on organizing Steam. My Steam collection is up to 151 right now (too many), and I use a few custom categories in order to sort everything.

Steam organization - GamesFirst, there’s the defualt – Games.

This has a lot of stuff in it. It includes both games I’m currently playing and games I plan to play sometime in the near-ish future. Games that I continually go back to (like Civ 5 or CS:GO) are in here, though now I’m thinking they should have their own category.

 

 

 

Steam organization - Games 2Next, there’s Games 2. These are the games that I plan on playing… maybe. A lot of them are games I got as part of a bundle that don’t totally spark my interest, but I plan to try them out at some point. Some, like Fallout 1 &2 are games I’ve played before but plan to play again at some point.

Steam organization - HmmThe cleverly named Hmm category is for games I haven’t quite decided if I will play. Some, like Warlock or Syberia, I’ve tried and they didn’t totally catch my interest.  Others I haven’t tried yet.

Steam organization - Go awayGo away houses the games I don’t want to see because I don’t plan to play them, for a variety of reasons. Some I never chose to add to my library, like DOTA, which seems to be forced on all Steam users. Others, like Prison Architect or Face Noir, are games I played a bit of but had no affinity for. And some came from bundles but don’t interest me at all.

Steam organization - FinishedThe Finished category seems pretty self-explanatory. These are finished, done, complete. I beat them, I won. Yay!
