Why Did You Give Me This? Steam Can Now Hide Games

Valve released a new Steam client update yesterday. It doesn’t add anything big or fancy. It probably doesn’t conceal an ARG announcing Half-Life 3. What it does do is fix several small things–small things which have been irritating many for so very long. For starters, that horrible slow embedded web browser has been updated to a newer, faster, and more secure version. Huzzah! And the one Steam feature some people have cried and wept and wailed and cared about more than I will ever understand is here: you can now hide games from your Library list.

You can’t entirely delete from your account that copy of Bad Rats (or Secrets of the Magic Crystal, or whatever the gag gift du jour is) given by a ‘friend’, but you can now shunt it off to a special game prison for naughty games so it doesn’t appear in your main list. Or you can simply tidy up a little, clearing away games you know you won’t play, as I started when making that picture up there.
