Does anyone else keep some games on their hard drive(s) because they intend to replay them some day? I still have

Black Dahlia
Monkey Island 3
Pandora Directive
Sherlock Holmes Case of the Rose Tattoo
Armed and Delirious

installed, though it may be quite some time before I get back to them, as I have other games I want to finish.

You're not alone! I also have Ripper permanently installed, along with:

Pandora's Box (always a favorite)
Zork Nemesis (my first Adventure Game)

I play each of these a few times a year,and I still never seem to get tired of any of them! I have, literally, 100's of games (1 full bookcase 'to be played'), but every once in a while, I need to touch base with an 'old friend'!

I still have Hype: The Time Quest installed on my Win98 partition (been a long while since I played it). Most games get uninstalled rather quickly though.

final fantasy 8. i love to replay the final battle and watch the ending movies. (okay, not an adventure, but you asked!)

also GK2. and Shadow of Destiny -- i only just finished it, but i suspect it'll be on my hard drive for some time to come.

now, contrast that with syberia or king's quest 7, which i uninstalled the second the credits were over...

Well yes I do! I have Syberia, The Longest Journey and Titanic still installed! Titanic is my latest, and I just want to get all the different endings, but Syberia and TLJ are just too dear to me to NOT keep playing!!! To uninstall is almost unbearable!!! Okay...weird I am..but i really really loved those games! Actually I've gone thru TLJ a few times...cuz you can get different answers and scenarios as you go along...
Great question!!! wave

Yep. I certainly keep some games permanently installed ...

a) Oldies - because I re play them so often happydance

b) Games that are too difficult for me to install myself, so once there they stay there, so I can re play them whenever I want <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />

c) Enormous RPGs (or the like) that I can't quite win my way to the end of yet but haven't given up on either wave

Answered the wrong post.
Journeyman 3-Legacy of time is about the only one on my W95. Have more than Thirty UNfinished games on it.
Lost the newer games on my W98 last month when the hard drive was replaced. (still not able to use it, but that's a whole 'nuther story.)

Any games I finish - I uninstall but always keep a copy of my saved games. Particularly the newer games as they use so much space.

I keep anything I download on HD as sometimes even the freeware can be discontinued as the creator can't keep the download site up. Also shareware games for obvious reasons. My next purchase is a CD burner so I can move all my patches files, freeware, shareware and such onto discs.

If I have a game installed it is because I am playing it actively or think (hope) I will fairly soon. I guess given the games left on my system - I have a lot of hope laugh

I keep Thief Gold and Thief Metal Age on tap because it took me months of fiddling with XP to get those (my favorites) two to run!!!
