    As a picky gamer, I don't have a truckload of games.
    Only using Desura, GOG.
    I still buy the physical copy when possible.

    Anyone else here install all games to C:\Games\ ?

    This. I also tend to install all my software applications there, and just generally treat it like a myDoc's folder as well.

    I sort my games in the time-honoured manner of the clusterfuck. My desk has a heap of games on one end, my desktop is cluttered with shortcuts and E:\Program Files (x86) is a borderline impenetrable tangle of 'random shit'.

    Just as well I set aside a 1Tb drive for my games alone. Only 150-odd Gb free space remaining though, might actually have to clean it up in the next year or so.

    No IE icon in fact, it all starts out so nicely for me with a nice clean desktop devoid of needless items. Then it all goes wrong a year or so later when I stop bothering; currently I have 103 desktop icons, auto-arranged with no discernable order. As for my start menu, even I don't want to see what it looks like.

    I once had more than 700 items on my desktop. I save all pics on it.

    I keep them on shelves by platform, but it has failed me. I've purchased at least 2 of them twice.

    I install to D:\Games, does that count? I put all my non-Steam games in there and it works out great.

    As for Steam - I have categories by genre, and then show only installed games.

    Now, if only devs would stick their savegames in one, single, friggin' folder as opposed to doing a thousand different things, so that I can easily back them up...

    I use Fences and sort them by Steam, Origin, DRM free, etc.

    I organize my games efficiently through the methods of memory and not buying random bundles of stuff. Occasionally the first method causes an old CD to go missing. I think I have only lost two games that I would quite like to play again, so it's not a bad system.
    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

    I use Steam categories.



    Done is games I've finished or played enough that I feel I've gotten my money's worth out of. I might end up replaying some of these but it's unlikely.

    Unplayed, and will stay that way are mostly games I've gotten in bundles that I'm not interested in. I've still given most of them a try for a level or two before consigning them to what is essentially the trashbin of my Steam library.

    Games is the main category. That's where I keep games I've yet to play or am currently playing. Games I've finished but feel like I might give a replay are also here.

    And I always install non-Steam games under C:\Games.

    What do you mean?
    I'll be doing a fresh install of everything when I build a new rig with a new OS.

    Same here. I tend to stay organized by letting it all get sloppy and eventually installs everywhere... then reformat after my yearly upgrade (even if unnecessary). My upgrading is always a post-Christmas event, so right now everything looks pretty ugly. Going to get a lot worse with the upcoming fourth quarter releases, but it'll be nice and clean come January.

    I use Steam categories:

    Abandoned: Games with minimal playtime that I no longer have an interest in.
    Retired: Games that I did not complete but put a lot of time in, remember fondly, or mp games that I no longer play.
    Completed: Games wherein I saw the credits roll.
    Continuous: Active mp games, or long-form games like Civ V, Sins Rebellion, Endless Space, Skyrim, etc.
    Playing: Typically a single player game where I am actively working through the campaign.
    Tier 1: Games that reside on the top of my queue.
    Tier 2: The middle range of my unplayed queue.
    Tier 3: Games that I don't plan to play for a long time and often get shifted to "Abandoned" status.
    Games: Steam's default category where new purchases reside until I sort/categorize them.

    This organization scheme is a more complex iteration of something I heard on a podcast. The whole hierarchy and intent is geared towards taking an active roll in completing my games (i.e. reducing the tyranny of the "Pile"). Everything is presorted so I don't dwell on what to play next and I regularly move Tier 1 games into my active "Continuous" or "Playing" categories and then complete them or eventually move them to "Retired" which is an honorable discharge or "Abandoned" which is a dishonorable discharge. It is a well-oiled machine built for the purpose of completing the games that I have mentally placed on a pedestal.

    I do not have an organization scheme for non-Steam games, though I will use GOG's or GamerGate's shelves to organize my purchases games somewhat (such as making low-interest games "hidden"). If I complete a non-Steam game (e.g. GOG version Witcher) I move the Steam license to its appropriate category...and yes I do buy some games multiple times across multiple platforms...I have bought the Witcher three times and the Witcher 2 twice to actively support developers that I respect and care for.
