How many PC games do you have installed on your PC at any one time?  I keep a few gems on my system at all times, but here is what I currently have installed:

1.) Starcraft and expansion
2.) Battlefield 2
3.) ER
4.) Thief 1, 2, 3
5.) Guild Wars (being uninstalled)
6.) World of Warcraft (being uninstaled)
7.) Vampire: The Masquerade (being uninstalled)

(wanna guess who is prepping for a format?)

I finally got a new hard drive to boost my meager 40G to 120 so I can now actually fit more than 3 or 4 games.

Currently:

RTW
DoW
Dungeon Lords
Chronicles of Riddick
HL2
SW:Republic Commando
Farcry
Armed and Dangerous
NWN Platinum
UT2K4
GTA:VC
BFME
Max Payne 1@2

I'm actually playing all of these though time is devoted to some more than others.  I still have more to install.  Its nice to have large selection ready to play for whatever you feel like. smile

Having a bigger hard drive is kind of like moving to a bigger apartment. You don't actually have more room, you just collect more crap.  My currently installed games:

Anarchy Online
Arcanum
City of Heroes
Divine Divinity
Evil Genius
Fallout 2
Ghost Recon
Hearts of Iron
Hearts of Iron 2
Morrowind
NASCAR 2002
Neverwinter Nights
Railroad Tycoon 3
RavenShield
Republic
Riddick EFBB
Sid Meier's Pirates!
Silent Storm
Splinter Cell 3 Demo
SWAT 4 Single Player Demo
The Sims 2 (plus University)
Thief 2
Torment
Tropico 2
UT 2004
Victoria

I keep meaning to uninstall the ones I'm not playing (you know, like 80% of them) but I never get around to it. A perfect example is Republic. I installed that February 2004, played for about an hour, got bored, have never touched it since. I think it's safe to assume that I'm not going to get back to it, so I should take the thirty seconds to uninstall.

About 110 total.  If you count just games made in the last few years, about 70.  I have 160 GB total, almost full, and all but whatever Windows takes up and 16 GB of music is devoted to games.   Needless to say, I jump around between different games a lot slywink

Independence War 2
Jedi Academy
Mafia
Planescape: Torment
Sacrifice
Maniac Mansion (redux)

Geez KD... based on those poll choices, you're selling us short smile  I'd assume most serious PC gamers have lots of games installed at any one time.  I know there was a similar thread on GG way back when, and many people had dozens of games installed.  At one point I had over 100 (a lot of older, smaller games), but since I rebuilt my PC, it's closer to 20 now.  But I've got a whole 250GB dedicated for games (and emulators and patches), so I can definitely install many more before feeling pinched.

I have exactly one game installed, as I just reformatted my main gaming PC, and got my laptop back from the shop after a lengthy 'get the damn thing fixed' issue with Gateway.

Unless you call the ton of music I have on my laptop games.

Absolutely!

I'm too lazy to list eveything on my machine, but at any given time there are probably 18-24 games on my HD (plus several demos). I tend to leave things there until I trade, sell, or give them away. I defrag regularly (Diskeeper),  and I do sometimes uninstall some dead-wood. But otherwise, I let'm ride.

I dont keep games on my HD very long.  Im a minimalist, so the more free HD space the better, and the fewer applications installed the better.

More Apps = larger Windows Registry = more memory used to store the Registry = slower bootup and performance.

Plus I need more room for my growing pr0n collection.

Silent Hunter 3 and Pro Evolution 4.

PE4 I just installed today so before that I only had one smile

This is a new computer though so that's partly the reason.  But at the same time I try to keep the fewest number of games on my comp as possible.  Don't you find that the more games you have the less time you actually  spend playing them?  It takes so much effort to have so much choice so in the end you end up playng nothing and watching a movie instead.
