    I have one of the gold codes from an ill-advised (in retrospect) purchase of an R290. I haven't redeemed it yet because I'm waiting for a better third game. Any idea if the collection will be...

    Games that never leave your hard disk

    What it says. The ones that survive hardware upgrades, crashes and spring cleaning. The fixtures that, when Windows says you're running out of disk space, you do not even consider uninstalling.
