How do YOU organise your game collections ?

    I've been playing about with Nvidias Geforce Experience software and really like the way it organises my games and adds box art etc.

    The only problem is, you can only import games into the Geforce interface that are Geforce optimized.

    Is there any decent software out there that does something similar ?

    At the moment I have all my executables in one "Game" folder but I'm looking for something more streamlined and polished to make my collection look good.

    Any suggestions ?

    I do this by using one single directory placed on the desktop.
    In this directory I have several sub directories, each named by genre. For instance: 'RPG', 'FPS', 'Action', 'City Builders', 'Strategy', 'Simulation', 'Miscellaneous', 'Construction' etc. Some of these also have sub directories, for instance 'Strategy' contains the sub directories 'Turn Based', 'Real Time', etc. Then the actual game shortcuts are placed in the appropriate directories.
    Sometimes, when the collection gets larger, it might be a bit hard to find what I'm looking for, especially if some games fit more than one genre, so I have one directory that contains all game shortcuts, so I can find the individual titles by alphabet.

    Not tried it, but Aurora game hub looks good.

    I don't, as I rarely have more than 3-4 games installed at once:p

    Same. Mainly Steam.

    **** GeForce Experience. Unnecessary piece of crap.

    This. The game i'm playing most at the minute might get an icon on the desktop if it's lucky.

    Games sorted into whichever platform they were bought under (Steam, Uplay, Origin), or otherwise (GoG, etc) installed to D: Games folder, with shortcut on desktop, hidden away using Fences.

    Launchbox or Gameroom. The latter supports Steam, uPlay and Origin. The former also supports a lot of emulators, even supplying manuals for your emulated games!
