On Steam there are definitely many cases where people have only played games to get trading card drops. Due to this, many of us who have idled for cards in the past now have a ton of games listed here that we haven't truly played and low completion percentages.

So I'd suggest a means for removing games with no achievements earned. Either that or change things so only games with achievements earned count here.

Scan them but don't have them affect % until an achievement is unlocked?
Its that guy from the thing in the place.

I sincerely think games with 0 achievements earned but time played should not effect our overall completion percentage.

I wish there was an option to have these not appear, or as the above posted not count towards your completion percentage until one is unlocked

This is the way Steam calculates total completion %, factoring out games that haven't had an achievement unlocked. I recall Xbox 360 games counting if you had playtime, but they could be deleted from your history until you had earned an achievement, so essentially the same behavior.

Steam is weird actually, each game is given equal weight, rather than reach achievement

Removing games with no achievements unlocked from the completion percentage would be good :)

I suggested this earlier in Use TA's method of "completion percentage" calculations

Please vote for this there. If we can keep the focus on the original thread, it will better reflect the community as there will be more votes.

The scanned logic was changed a little while ago so that games without achievements are no longer added as "played" games and since then I've also deleted all records without any earned achievements.

As such I'm going to send this off to the archives. smile
