Would restoring a game's files again work?

I uninstalled a game without deleting the data.Would just restoring the files be enough for me to launch it again?

when uninstalling any software you should always remove leftovers either manually or with something like ccleaner.... in the case of games if you had a save game folder and know where to find it drag (not copy) it or to your desktop... when you re-install the game wait for it to create a save then remove the files an drag over your old save details.... if using steam client the games server wont know you uninstalled it so just re-download it and you will get back all data plus saves unless you click start new game.... with regards to steam if you re-install the steam client you MUST use the same username / email and password or your games list will be empty... you then just re-install everything.NOTE... as client runs tick existing user tab.
