This is not a trick question

Quiz:  Which of these folders in your user profile (as in, the folder you open when you click your name on the Start menu) should contain your save game files?

Hint:  This is not a trick question.

Highlight the text in this box to find the answer:

[ The Saved Games folder. ]

Did you guess correctly? If so, you're apparently smarter than most game developers, including the developers of the following games currently installed on my hard drive, who all thought it was one of those other folders:

  • Bioshock 2
  • Dragon Age
  • Mass Effect 2
  • Starcraft II (beta)

For the record, the developers of these games answered correctly:

  • Command and Conquer 3
  • Command and Conquer 4
  • Command and Conquer Red Alert 3
  • Tinker

(I'm going to go ahead and give a temporary pass to people who at least had the decency to put their save game files in a subfolder of the incorrect location named "My Games," which was a whopping 12 games.)
