Hmm , but you have them in your library so you , at least i think so , had to interact with them in some way because as far as i know free games doesnt get added to your library automatically.

I’m not sure that’s true anymore. I would need to look at my PC for sure, but on mobile EVE Online and TF2 show up.

I have both and never added them to my library myself. Way back when I installed Steam there was a few Valve titles front loaded in my library. I remember I installed it and made an account just to get Binding of Isaac and there was Dota 2 already in the library with Team Fortress and I think Half Life.

The licenses log should help solve those mysteries.

Just checked, neither has ever been added to my library…

:open_mouth: are we onto some new phenomenon? Now I’m excited=D

But let’s double check it first. The license log lists license packages’ names, not games’ names. Sometimes the two might be similar (license package name may contain part/whole or some form of the game’s name), but it’s best not to rely on that.

So, in your case we’re looking for one of these:
https://steamdb.info/app/570/subs/
and one of these:
https://steamdb.info/app/440/subs/

OR - and this is my bet for now - just one entry that’s on both lists above - a license package that contains both games. There is quite a lot of those (the ones with white background)

EDIT: I so often use the license log for batch searches, that I completely forgot about one nifty feature…
Steam can simply tell you which license pack the game came from (and when):smiley:

Select the game in your library and click Support, you’ll see either:

the license package name with a timestamp (if you acquired it by activating a key)

or - if you acquired it via Steam directly - you’ll have to click view receipt and then you’ll see the details

I will bite Valve for you if you want.

Here we go:

For some reason this says it was added to my library today… lol… that’s after I took my screenshot for my post earlier…

I won’t bother with a screenshot for Team Fortress 2, it says the same thing…

By the way, the support page is a bit confused as to which day the game is added… it’s dynamic, always added to my library “today,” lol!
