What kind of games do you install on your SSD?

I use them for BF3, Natural Selection 2 and MMORPG's as they actually benefit quite a bit from an SSD for loading into large cities and stuff.

The only game I have on my SSD right now is APB: Reloaded. I play it often, it uses stream loading and, most importantly, I record it so I have to have it on a separate drive than the one I'm recording to otherwise the congestion between stream loading and recording really screws the game up.

All of them. I usually only have 4-5 games installed at a time.

I would install all games to my SSD's but not all games have long load times so those that don't will stay on my 7,200 rpm drive. A game like Fallout: NV already loads in less than a few seconds on a standard HDD anyway so why bother putting it on my ssd?

Well, for one, Vegas runs on a crappy Gamebryo engine that loads assets like it's 1998, so yeah, maybe an SSD would help, at the very least with graphics mods (Further LOD, high res textures etc.)

I have Battlefield 3 (although I'm considering cutting out some of the expacs and symlinking them to my HDD), Skyrim, and Civ V.
