It should just restore Steam, but you can download the games again from Steam. You should be able to download it as many times as needed.

Wouldn't that restore to just before you installed steam so you'd get none of it?

Pretty sure System Restore only restores registry info.. not files.

That's your best chance, I'm just not sure exactly what in the steam folder is covered in a restore point.
