10 games that have forever been removed from Steam. Over the years some games have been removed from stores. Think about the media hype surrounding Mortal Kombat in the 90s or GTA more recently. The game market is shifting to digital stores, and Steam is the biggest one out there. But even a digital store can remove games. Let’s take a look at 10 games that have been removed from Steam forever.

active shooter was fun like a game is a game it is not real life and anyone who thinks it causes people to do shit are retarded yea some people say the game has to much of this or that well if you dont like it dont buy it its rated m for a reason
Ride to Hell was a really enjoyable gaming experience for me, I laughed my ass off all the way through playing it. Granted I only paid couple bucks for it (would have been pissed off if I'd paid full price), but no regrets on that one
"We're happy Valve removed all theses games because we should be the ones who decide what other people can and can't view, play, or spend their money on."
Authoritarians need to all be dragged out into the street and shot.
I agree with every single removal present here EXCEPT for the rock n roll racing-like game. Who are blizzard to point fingers at others for "stealing" game concepts and ideas when Overwatch does the same with TF2?
The removal of Active Shooter has nothing to do with its quality since there are lots of shovelwares available to purchase on Steam. It was removed because it was deemed "offensive". In fact, that game is not much more shocking than GTA or even Postal.
For reasons unknown, *people tend to think it's more correct to pull that type of game out of the shelves rather than the ones in which you go to Middle East in a crusade to "spread democracy".*
I don't see why Active Shooter was pulled from Steam while games like Postal were left untouched, it sounds a bit unfair to me.
It is okay for Valve to pull games from Steam if they wish, as being the owners of the service they are entitled to do so. Store owners get to choose what they sell. School shootings are something no company wants to be associated with, especially in the context of entertainment, due to it being a perpetually hot button issue. Blowing up people within the context of anti-terrorism is obviously a topic that has far less potential to ruffle feathers (except perhaps those of terrorists, and few care about their plumage.)
I haven't played GTA, but I doubt the content is all that much more shocking than what one can see watching the news of any major U.S. city. Some time ago, the station of one of the major networks was temporarily changed from that of Minneapolis/St. Paul to Detroit, and suddenly we got "enjoy" the daily murder count on the evening news along with a host of stories about gang related crime.
Postal is a lot closer to the game in question, but so far as I know was primarily about an adult slaughtering other adults, which apparently was enough to edge it into being acceptable to sell. I remember there was a fair amount of outrage when it first came out, but with extreme depictions of violence increasingly more common it is less likely to spark such ire now.
DO NOT buy this game from Steam.
Quite unbelievably, you can still buy this game for £10.99 on Steam.
Originally developed and released by games distillery s.r.o in 2013 then BigMoon Studios "took over the work". Whatever that means as it's NOT even mentioned on their website!?
The game still doesn't work and looks like it's not been patched for years. Yet Steam still try to sell an unfinished (Unfinishable!), glitchy and totally pathetic game for £10.99.
1:05 “Active Shooter was clearly made to spark controversy and not to create quality entertainment, so removing it is a win-win situation for all of us.”
Speak for yourself, lady. I would love to play a controversial game like that. Sure, it looks a little rough around the edges, but a game like that definitely has potential. You’re trying to tell me that Grand Theft Auto, a game that lets you indiscriminately murder innocent people and police officers by shooting them or running them down with cars, is worth keeping around, but a school shooter emulator is not? GTA 5 is currently featured on the front page of the Steam Store. Valve is making big bucks from that game. Active Shooter got taken down because Valve wad afraid of the potential public blowback. I expect better from them, honestly. It’s just plain cowardice. Really disappointed.
Probably matters little to most people here, but better research could have been done about the Cricket games mentioned.
There is no ashes cricket 'series'. The game in question was the only cricket game made by 505 games. The game shown at the end to demonstrate the improvement in the series was made by a completely different company as part of its own series of cricket games, originally titled Don Bradman Cricket. A previous game, Ashes Cricket 2009, made by yet another company, also shares the name only because the Ashes is the name of the trophy for which England and Australia play every two or so years.
Our on-going goal with Steam is to improve the service we offer customers. We believe that by sharing this data, well be able to spot problems earlier, improve the Steam service more efficiently, and ultimately build better products and experiences.
