How can I block a Steam game from ever being installed on my PC?



  • Sometimes my friends want us to play brawlhalla. I then think that's a good idea because sometimes it's fun. But every time I play it I'm reminded by just how insanely angry I get and just how much I hate this game. Every time I play ranked solo, I rage like I have never done and it's crazy, I feel like a complete savage afterwards when I get down to Earth. I never get this angry playing any video games, normally I'm chill and enjoy. But this one game seriously drives me nuts when I play it.

    So I always end up deleting it, but then a few months later, I install it for another round and forget just how badly I hated this game, then I'm reminded again.

    So now I want a way to prevent this game from ever being installed on my desktop ever again. I could get some self control and stop myself, but it's happened like 3-4 times now that I install thinking it will be fun with my friends, but it ends up being agonizing. So to really leave this game for good and NEVER play it again, I want to make it IMPOSSIBLE to download. So when in 3-12 months, I sit down with optimism, that I would then get quickly reminded, just how unhealthy this game is for me.

    So is there any way to make it IMPOSSIBLE to download this specific game on my local machine or Steam account?



  • Yes, you can permanently remove the game from your account, making it forever unplayable (unless you purchase it again).
