I'm glad I'm not that interested in those 100GB+ games. I'm not sure if I would buy one if I was. Downloading The Witcher 3 took me days. It was 30GB.

That aside I don't think any game is worth having around if it takes up 100GB of my harddrive. Not with the drives we have today at least.

I'd hate to miss out on great stuff just because it has a temporary slow segment say in the middle that causes me to lose interest.

I also don't uninstall games unless I'm done with them. But this is mainly because I have a data cap.

That being said, at any given time I don't have more than 10 games installed.

Perhaps I worded that wrong. I'm not saying that I only install one game at a time, I do have 7 games installed as of now. But I still have my priorities, there are games that's okay to uninstall because I won't be getting back to them anytime soon or already beaten. My point is, even 1TB of space already gives me a lot space for some options in my installed games. It's more than enough to store 10 games, which is a lot.

People seem to have lots of good reasons for not uninstalling games.

For me, for the vast majority of games I've installed, the reason that I didn't uninstall them is because I'm too lazy :P

I usually don't uninstall the games I enjoy because I feel like I should complete them by doing the optional content, beating them on a different difficulty or to just simply replay them again. Realistically however this rarely ever happens. The last time I played MGR:R was on the 18.12.2014 and ever since then, every other month or so, I keep telling myself to replay that game again ... it didn't work out so far. I really should replay that game again tho.

If you mean Syndicate and Unity, then yes. Origins has no MP but may have naval combat to some degree.

Edit: Oh, and the microtransactions systems in both are inoffensive and don't indicate a massive grind of any kind.

Also Purchasable on GOG, Humble but they haven't put it up on those sites yet

God Eater 3 might be coming to Steam.

At least in the YouTube keywords its using PS4, PC and Xbox One. Funny though, because remember that it was totally a "mistake" when the one who uploaded the SAO vs Accel World trailer and it mentioned PC in the keywords?

Because it has a skill tree and different armor so that's enough to make it a rpg in 2017.

The God Eater games on Steam are a total mystery to me. I remember distinctly, that I installed and started them, at some point. Then everything descends into a Lynchian pipedream, and finally when I come to I am at home, uninstalling the game and there is a strange feeling of relief at the sight. And this happened twice, once for GE1 and for GE2.
I think it would unhealthy to try again.

Why does Ruiner have native Dualshock 4 support if it's not going to have the right button prompts, and makes you use the touch pad for select.

Seriously, what was Sony thinking? At least Nintendo was smart enough to not put a screenshot button where any sane person would try pressing select.

Ehh, I can still appreciate it if it comes to PC and will probably buy it. That being said MHWorld will hopefully keep me busy for the whole of 2018 though. I'm really trying to not hype myself up too much and avoid watching a lot of footage and reading reports. But the bit I've seen and heard from hands-on reports... hngh
Last time I did this with a MH game it turned out to be the most disappointing game of the series to date lol

It's YMMV but does work for some people. I can't comment myself, though, as I haven't been experiencing any issues (AU - WA/steam.cdn.on.net, FWIW).

Currently installed games I might be interested in are as follows:

-Dead Cells
-Skyrim Special Edition (though TBH I'm still waiting on SKSE/more mods to be ported to return to this - even simple modding is probably too much for one night)
-Endless Space 2
-Fallout 4
-Halycon 6: Lightspeed Edition
-Hyper Light Drifter
-Pillars of Eternity
-Civilization VI
-Stardew Valley
-Stellaris
-The Witcher 3

Those are all the ones I'm potentially up for playing that I either haven't started at all, or haven't finished (e.g. 19 hours into The Witcher 3).

Any particular recommendations SteamGAF?

A bit late but I'd go with The Witcher 3. Though if you've played it for 20 hours and are not enough into it as to make that decision on your own maybe you're just not enjoying it as much as I did.

Welp, i guess i'll wait until Valve fix it, i downloaded other games so i have new stuff to play right now. Well, they're not that "new", downloaded another bunch of 2007 games i didn't played on Steam, the only one that stuck in download queue is Blazing Angels 2.
