    Are there any video games you love so much that you never uninstall them? The ones I keep installed are Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2 with its expansion pack Yuri's Revenge. I also keep Deus Ex on there too. I can always have fun in the skirmish mode of Red Alert 2 and Deus Ex has so much to it that I still find new things even when I play now. How about you? Do you always keep certain games installed on your PC?

    No, not really, I uninstall them when I'm already running out of space in my pc, since there are lots of games out there that I have yet to play. I don't really feel attached to any game, but I do keep the GTA games, since you can still mess around in the city even after you have finished playing it.

    Mostly keep Unreal Tournament and GTA San Andreas. Both are simple games that i can keep at anytime and play it when i have some free time. Also, San Andreas multiplayer is a blast to play!

    I still have all the Sims games installed in my computer. I love to play the Sims. My friend got me started playing these games years ago. And I have been buying the newer versions when I can afford them. My kids just got me the latest Sims game for a Christmas present. For some reason it was hard to install in our computer. We had to get tech support and everything but I finally got it on the computer.

    I also love to play Jeopardy, and Family Feud. Those are classic games I do not think I will ever get tired of. My kids like to play them from time to time as well. I would like to think the Jeopardy game can be educational as well as fun.

    I keep Zuma (I hate it, but I love it) installed. I also keep a casino game Valley of the Kings (Real Deal casinos) installed.

    Uh, Solitaire? By default, it's installed in my operating system and I don't bother to remove it. I also have Zuma and Bejeweled installed for almost forever. Plus I also have counterstrike and World of Warcraft DotA always installed in my laptop. These are my all time favorites to I tend to leave them be on my computer.

    I keep most of my games installed on my computer, even the older free to play ones that I haven't used in ages. This is mostly because my drive isn't too full yet, so I really just forget about them. Other than that, I keep all games that I have bought over Steam, as even though I can download them again, it is a hassle and takes hours.

    For me it is The Sims 3 game. I have too many funny characters on there, that I purposely made to look hideous for my own amusement. I can't uninstall it because I put so much effort in to building up their home with nice things! that game always gets me laughing. I also keep a bus simulation game installed. It's really fun, but it does get boring quite quickly.

    I keep quite a few games installed, just because they're fun to come back to.

    Saints Row 3 - I like playing this on co-op, but I never know if my friends will want to play it soon or if they won't want to play it for months.

    Minecraft - Ditto to the above, plus it's fun alone occasionally.

    Battlefield 3 - Basically the same. I like playing online and I never know when my friends will want to play. There's also that it takes a long time to download and install, so I can't do it quickly.

    I always keep at least one version of GTA installed all the time. It's fun to take a break from work sometimes and just move around in the GTA cities. Unfortunately, I still don't have GTA IV, and honestly I'd rather have that installed right now since that's the one I haven't really played as much as I have the others.

    World of Warcraft! I don't even play currently, my computer probably wouldn't run it very well, and I haven't renewed my subscription for a few months. But on the off-chance I do want to play at some point, I leave it on. Plus, I had tons of great fun with friends on there! Any time I see the little icon, it reminds me of that. (By the way, if you're looking for discounted games, the first game and two of the expansions are constantly on sale on the Blizzard website- but it's $15/month, so that's not much of a money-saver.)

    Most if not all of my steam games are constantly dormant on my PC. (Counter Strike 1.6, Counter Strike Source, Garry's Mod, Team Fortress 2, etc.)

    A non steam game I have installed in case I ever get bored is StarCraft 2. It is a RTS (Real Time Strategy) game where you build up an army strategically to destroy the enemy's base(s).

    Every PC or Mac I've ever owned has had Counter-Strike installed on it at some point or another. I look at that game like an old book I go back and re-read every now and then. Things have changed a lot since I started playing it and Steam has become this giant, which for the most part is a great thing. I also usually install Day of Defeat and Team Fortress 2 while I'm at it - another two games I can't get enough of! Anyone else here on Steam? If so what's your username I'll give you an add!

    I always keep games with a lot of gameplay and replayability installed on my PC, like the Sims, Call of Duty, and GTA. I like to have some entertainment to fall back on sometimes.

    Currently the games that I can't bring myself to uninstall are DoTa2, Heroes of Newerth and Skyrim. I just spend so much time playing them that uninstalling them is a stupid idea.
