​It’s Now Really Easy To Add All Your Games To Steam, Including Epic Exclusives

​It’s Now Really Easy To Add All Your Games To Steam, Including Epic Exclusives

Some people have been might peeved that Steam has a competitor. With great games now becoming exclusives of the Epic Games Store, there are a few games you can't buy through Steam, which means by default you need to launch another client to boot those games. Handily, Steam has a feature that lets you add non-Steam games to your Steam library. However, this process - while easy - normally needs to be done one game at a time. There's now a software that will scan your PC for games and add them all to Steam for you.

SteamGridDB is a free software that roots through your PC detecting games that you own that aren't already added to your Steam library. They may be games you've bought on the Epic Games Store, EA's Origin store, Ubisoft's Uplay store, Battle.net, and GOG. Once they've been added to Steam you can boot them from the client like you would any Steam games, and even take advantage of Steam features such as Big Picture, Steam Overlay, and In-Home Streaming.

There are a couple of good reasons to not want to currently use the Epic Game Store. For instance, Steam has much better accessibility tools. If you use custom controllers and layouts, Steam can carry your settings between games. Hopefully, in time, Epic will develop similar functionality. It's relatively early days for the store, especially when compared to Valve's 15 year head start.

However, for people annoyed that they need to run multiple launchers to play games bought in different stores, and that's their reason for hating on non-Steam stores, this software should solve all their problems.

SteamGridDB even lets you change the images of the games that appear in your launcher, so you can make your launcher more stylish than ever.
