    Unless the games DEPENDS on it's latest update, then yes. You are not required to install an update for a game unless needed.

    Examples include, super smash bros..and..Shovel Knight. Other games are online patched, and crap like that so I don't..really know if it applies to them.

    You just saved my life. Wow... the most stupid fix ever.

    I thought updates were obligatory to run the game.

    Smash updates are a 100% requirement for online play and, if the game knows there's an update out, for the creation of save files. Just sayin'.
