That game you just can't delete?

Is there a game on your hard drive that you just can't delete? or perhaps a piece of DLC that you wont part with because of some bizarre reason?

 

For me the game is X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Because the save data is stored inside your profile somehow, the only thing kept in the games folder is the install and I've developed an irrational belief that deleting the game will also remove the save data.

 

There's my gaming irrationality, do you have one?

I can't delete anything!I keep all sorts of stuff on my 250GB drive. DLC for games I don't even own anymore. Just in case I get them again.

 

My biggest gaming irrationality, though, is being too scared to play a game unless it's installed to the hard drive. I'm working on it though, I am starting to play games for half an hour even if they are not installed. I'm scared my xbox will break if I don't install them

If there's anything on my hard-drive I can't delete, it's the dlc's for Oblivion, Fallout 3, Borderlands and Dragon Age: Origins.

They're... sacred.

Go ahead and delete the install game.

 I've played directly from the disc and the game progress was tagged to my gamertag (not game install).

Oblivion, because every time I delete it, I have the urge to replay it again soon after. I'd rather not have to reinstall Oblivion, Shivering Isles, plus all of the other small DLC every time I want to play.

I have this other weird thing where I'll start a game, lose interest about 75% in and after a few weeks, months pick it up again and start fresh until I'm about 75% in and lose interest again....rince and repeat. I never finish the majority of my games but I play them hours on end. i'm just weird that way I guess... ;)

Yeah, I have some games that I have 1000G on and I know I won't touch it again, but I just can't delete the game save.

I also have a 1000G on Forza 3, but I just can't delete the DLC from disc 2, even though I can install it just as easily.

It's stupid...but I saved most of the Halo trailers and interviews that I could download. I have not watched any of them since I first downloaded them...but I always feel I may watch them again someday

I rarely delete much off my 250g hard drive. There are exceptions though, like games i havent played in over like 4 or 5 years.

 

Game saves i will never delete because they are too sacred and precious are Oblivion, Fallout 3 and Vegas, and Borderlands.

I am notorious for doing this as well.  I start a game, leave it for months and then re-start it again because I forgot what to do.

As for my hard drive, I don't delete anything.

I don't delete anything but demo's after I'm done with them.  I keep all my game save info and dlc.
