Hey guys,

I recently bought three games for my iMac. I don't want to install them all on my iMac at the same time, though. I want to install one, play it, and then delete it to make way for the other games.

I am wondering if the deleting of games on my Mac is the same as deleting applications? I usually use AppZapper to delete my application, and it cleans out a bunch of other folders and files that I'd otherwise miss. Do games work the same way as well?

Thanks guys.

Your Mac should be able to handle having all three games installed at once, but each to their own. As for deleting them, AppZapper will work fine for deleting games.

If you're so tight on disk space that you can't have three games on there, you have bigger problems heading your way.

I recommend a continuous minimum of 12GB free on a modern Mac's hard drive. Any less than that and you start to feel it the longer you use the machine.

Space isn't a problem, but I just don't like applications to be there when they don't have to. I suppose I might do just that, but I'd still like to know how to delete the games when I actually want to, you know?

Thanks to you guys for the advice.
