Games like XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Borderlands 2 and Dishonored load in seconds. Obviously an SSD would be much faster still but I consider it more important to be able to launch any game I choose
Nope, it depends on the game. Some games it makes a big difference and other games it makes a small difference. Whatever your reasons are, they're your reasons so enjoy or whatever. I'd wager the majority of people do not care to keep their entire gaming library installed so long as it is accessible.
