I have several games that I've added to my collection that I want to remove because I know I'm never going to start them, and I have no earned achievements in them.

Going to the page for the game itself, doesn't give me the option to remove it. It shows "Add to my Game Collection" instead even though it's already a part of my collection.

However, I can successfully remove them by using the edit button in the list view from the game collection itself.

How are you "going to the game?" I ask because I've seen some people had a problem where they added the wrong version of a game. Like, they had the regular game and added the GOTY version.

Easiest way is to click the game link directly from the collection.

I am getting the same thing, to test it I checked Runbow was in my collection, and it is, then searched for Runbow and on the drop down it still says 'Add to My Collection'

I don't want to remove stuff, but that is usually how I check my collection is up to date, by looking at the dropdown menu.

I go to a game page and the option to Hide From My Games and Session Calendar is not there, anyone else having this problem?

No I saw it too when verifying I had added Hydro Thunder. Thought I hadn't, clicked Add, and when I was still on the game page and it even still had the alert it was added to my collection, the dropdown still said Add, not Remove.

Yeah, there is something wrong with the dropdown.

Game collection option on under the game pulldown not populating correctly.

Till this is fixed, you can do what Evil Genie said:

Or remove them from games.aspx. Just search for the game name and click the button on the right.
You've had control of this ship the whole time! Why wouldn't you tell anyone?

Thanks, everyone. I've just tested this and it seems to be working now - we did push out a fix for another similar issue and I believe it's inadvertently resolved this too.

I'm going to mark this as fixed, but please let me know if you are still having issues. toast
