Steam games installed by separate local user wont run

Hey guys, Arch newbie here.

I have been having an issue running Steam games that were installed from a separate local user on my PC.
All games are installed on a separate HDD, and the SteamLibrary folder is assigned to a group that both I and other user are in, yet it still doesn't work.
My current workaround is either reinstalling the games under my account or using chmod to grant myself ownership (not the group) of the SteamLibrary folder to run games, but as you might expect, the other local user can no longer run the games!

From my understanding, it seems that when you install games on steam, its ownership defaults to yourself only, what would the procedure be to change such behavior?
