Do you keep all your games downloaded onto your pc and just waiting for you to play? Or do you just have one game at a time on the computer? I want to have all my games on file only because it takes too long to download a game thanks to my internet connection (F.E.A.R. 3 .....took 3 days)

I keep 40-50 games installed. I have space to store others but I see it as excessive.

I keep about 1tb of games installed at all times. I have about 4tb worth of games tho, so at any given time I can only have 1/4 of my games installed.

One single-player game

One mmo

One multiplayer game



Installed at a time. Only those 3. RARE exceptions if one game is particularly long and I want a break or the sort, like currently I have Dark Souls and Strider 'cause I needed a break from DkS

But never ever more than 5 games
hella butts

It generally is but I do tend to find myself focusing on the same 5 games. Jumping between Planetside 2, Far Cry 3, X-Com, Red Faction Guerrilla, and Shogun 2. Rarely playing the others from time to time.

only have space for a couple of games.

usually two big ones around 15-20GB and then a bunch of smaller ones.

not that much of a bother since it takes me less than an hour to install another big game with my connection(50mbps).
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.
