262 games seems like a lot to have installed.



Yeah, When you put it like that, It does seem a bit to much, Lol,
Here is a picture for you, Just click on the [url]postimg.org/image/do2tr2lnp/full/' target='_blank'>Link here

But I designed my computer to be a gaming computer, It is very powerful,

I have put over $2000 into it, I am a Computer service and repair technician, I built it with my very own hands to play games for the next generation of gaming,

It is cheaper to build your own any-way.

I have another WD - 2TB Desktop - 2000GB Hard-drive connected to my computer,
but it is unformatted, I will use it and call it "My Games extended"

There is only one question left for me: But will it blend?

I myself have about 5 to 6 games installed and ready to play. And most of the time I play a game until I finish it.

I agree with you fully, If you have 5 to 6 games installed...
On the other hand, I have 202 steam games and 60 origin games installed on my pc.

I would have not purchased a life-time membership for 5-6 games otherwise,

262 games seems like a lot to have installed. Certainly more than I have or would have and probably far more than most. I may buy Lifetime for just 5 or 6 games if I played thru them quickly. Most folks I talk with have between 15 and 30 games installed give or take but with libraries usually in excess of 2-300 more games and growing ever larger.

What size drive are your installed games on?

Depending on the size of each game, if it goes from 20 to 500 MB, then TB drives would look empty

20MB to 500MB is only .02 GB to .5 GB and games nowadays average like 6GB to 10GB with AAA games much more than that. Here's a list I saw on Game-Debate.com (at the time) of the 10 biggest games so far of 2014:

The Elder Scrolls Online (60 GB)
Final Fantasy XIII (60 GB)
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (55 GB)
The Evil Within (50 GB)
Wolfenstein: The New Order (50 GB)
NBA 2K15 (50 GB)
Titanfall (48 GB)
Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor (40 GB)
Alien Isolation (35 GB)
Dead Rising 3 (30 GB)
=======
478 GB


And now there's games like GTAV at 65GB. There's a game coming out called Star Citizen that's a whopping 100GB.

Given the long loading times for some of these, a lot of people like to play them from SSD's. Last time I looked a 1TB SSD was around $350 or so so that Star Citizen
game will add like another $35 bux just in storage space on a SSD drive.

Now take the gentleman above's 262 installed games and do some math. That could get to be enormously costly using SSD's. Sure, HDD's would be cheaper but at the cost of longer loading times for these massive games.

Just something to think about.

Come on now Marc, that's not very realistic these days. 20MB to 500MB is only .02 GB to .5 GB. Games nowadays average more like 6GB to 10GB with AAA games much more than that. Here's a list I saw on Game-Debate.com (at the time) of the 10 biggest games so far of 2014:

Loading times on these games, I say are not really that long. As for SC the game is still really Alpha and is getting constant updates which are large. But untill it is really completed and sorted the size is not really to inpoint. Currently right now my Star Cit is just under 30gb.

It's said to be coming though, Bear. Here's some quotes from Jeremy Masker, the Director of Game Operations for Roberts Space Industries in their Forum.

" There are millions of art assets yet to be created, and eventually they will all need to live on the players harddrive."


When replying to if the game might stay between 30-40 GB, he said:

"As I have already said, I would not count on this. The game compression and asset removal is unlikely to yield such high gains that we will be able to reduce our client size to 30-40gb. The size and number of assets that are left to deliver means that our client size is much more likely to be 100gb."

------------

It should really be something to see when nearing completion. But in all likelihood it will have the longest loading times of any game out there.
