Are you on Steam?
When my kid is old enough I'll probably start gaming with him again. :)
Season's greetings! I would like to personally invite you to join this year's Steam Secret Santa event, thread link below. Please drop by and help us make this holiday season a bit more merry for everyone. Looking forward to seeing you there!
So get this. A while back (like 2 years), I asked you about a failed SMART test on my dad's computer. Low and behold, the hard drive finally completely crashed on us.
Well, with our luck, my dad's hard drive at his office was acting up as well, and that crashed within weeks of the same time. Lets take the story about 2 weeks later, and another guy at my dad's office just had his hard drive crash too. I ordered these 2 computers at the same time...I guess it was cheap parts.
3 danged hard drives all crashing in like a months time. 2 of the computers were only 2 years old, and the other probably 4. Just ridiculous.
Regardless, my dad has since learned his lesson, and he now has me build his computers with much more reliable parts instead of ordering the cheap ones.
In terms of hard drives and backup storage, I've started using FreeNAS and its awesome. I built a dedicated machine with over 12TB of storage which uses ZFS and allows me to plug in any spare drives I have to add to my total storage at any time. If a drive fails, I just unplug it without any data loss...
Something to consider if you're tired of dealing with multiple external hard drives and them failing.

Why I buy digital games only: 1. Hate seeing space wasted in my house with game cases on the shelf 2. Not a fan of my young kid scratching disks while he is swapping them 3. Slow disk read speeds/disk DRM 4. Can't efficiently use cool new features like game streaming to any TV in my house All in all, I understand why some people like physical disks but it shouldn't be a stretch for most...
