  1. Does anybody know where the best directory is to install games in general?
  2. What about 64 bit games?
  3. 32 bit games?
My Laptop is 64bit btw.

Do you mean on your computer? Do you have multiple hard drives? Doesn't matter really if you one physical drive, wherever you want, you can take the default location the installer chooses.

No, I have a laptop. There's two program files in my C drive, where should I install my games? or should I install them outside of the two? Will there be any difference?

A laptop is a computer. A desktop computer is also a computer.

The reason there is two Program Files is one is for 64-bit programs and one for 32 bit programs. My advice is to let the game or programs install into the folder of their choosing and not change it. There is no best place, just use the default place.

I agree with Triple6, just save it on the default location. You have only one hard drive.
