        I literally just had to move Shadow of the Tomb Raider to my SSD because the load times were over 1min but maybe its because I'm running mods. Either way it's more than just Starfield you need to run on an SSD unless you like to live in PS3 era loading screens.

    I have a nas that I have mounted as a mapped drive. I move games to it instead of deleting them. Active games I play are on a 1TB SSD. Migration can take about 5 minutes. In theory the entire SSD could be migrated in less than an hour based on my transfer speeds. It's faster when moving a game to the SSD.

    I also have two 16TB hdds in a mirrored volume, but that's used for my documents and llm/diffusion models.

      Yeah you shouldnt play one with 666 in the label. Lol, imagine if we were actually in hell? Imagine if there was a God who treats us like animals on a farm and is using us to build skyscrapers. He cares about us. Wait, maybe that's not true, that's what 666 in the label is for. If you don't reply to me you'll never wake up from your illusion. Until he tells you himself I guess. It's not actually hard for him. Try to remember he's literally making video games somehow. Like a lot of them, maybe even all of them. Isnt that just the worst news you could recieve? Maybe not for you. I've been tortured. He was so strong, but my life was actually like a curse. Like the body is actually a prison cell if you don't have your basic shit. That's so fricking crazy that he's just casually making videogames in front of me. The sad thing is, I'm totally powerless. My body can't do anything to stop him. All my body can do is hang itself to stop the pain. I'm so fricking angry that he did this. The only reassuring thing is that almost nobody seems to know about the labels to products with 666 in them. That's proof that I might be the only real person. If you're a real person you shouldnt let me know, I've been having fun thinking I'm the only real one. I've tried so hard to prove one of you exist but I can't do it. I've actually shown people the fricking barcodes and they suggested I go to a mental ward. Lol, it's really confusing. You aren't real, but you're talking somehow. And you're paranoid AF about magic

      Storage manufacturers scam customers by calculating 1MB=1000KB instead of 1024. Shit adds up.

    I'm storing movies, tv shows and anime instead.
    I've already replayed every game I care about several times and I don't feel like touching it again

      Majority of porn torrents I download are dead due to lack of seeding. Seedcucks are like people who don't pirate or don't use adblocks - they're morons, but necessary morons, so the rest can enjoy a good thing.

      I hoard because the files I want don't have seeds. No one seeds old foreign TV shows.

    I do actually, but I am too sad and tired to sit in my chair and play on my desktop when I get home from work, so I lie down on my crackden mattress, fold the comforter over the holes where springs poke out as per usual, and look at my Steam library while browsing Ganker until I feel like falling asleep

    Because most new games are trash, and the 99% of new games that are worth playing aren't more than 5 or 6 gigabytes at most.

    I have glorious third world slav internet so it's faster and less of a pain in the ass for me to just download it when I feel like playing rather than sifting through folders.

    I have a 12.7TB HDD of Blu-Rays that I play using MadVR and RTX HDR on an OLED
    Why would I need a big slow HDD for games?

      for the games u don't really play of course, so all the games you do play will be on your precious solid state storage.

    At least 1TB of that is dedicated to porn exclusively.

    I dropped my 2TB HDD and it died instantly and lost like 1 year of data hoarding and i had depression for for the entire remaining week
    I can't imagine what it would be like having a 12TB HDD fail out of nowhere and lose all your shit

      *my primary drives are nvmes or sata ssds, though

      no reason not to buy a 1tb+ nvme, you just plug it in, doesn't even need cables.
