An Option to Choose Which Games or Apps Will Update Automatically
With bandwidth caps in place I had to disable auto updates ( I have over 500 games installed), but if we could have the option to choose which games and apps we want updated that would be gold.

I can't find my suggestion, but I thought I had previously suggested that there be an option to auto update games played recently (like 7 days).I am not sure if I like manually selecting them better or recently played as an option.
In addition, offer us the ability to *set* auto-download \ console update times (e.g. 1am to 6am local), so our consoles don't impact other connected devices during peak usage hours.

I really wanted to play Fallout 76, but there was a 50GB patch when I got home, which takes hours to download and install. I can't turn on auto-updates, because I'll easily go over my data cap. This feature would be so valuable to me.
Maybe as well, you could have the option to have a notification come up if a game or app needs updating? So that you're aware it needs updating sooner. It'd save you only realising when you try to start up the game for example.
Agree - with over 500 games it doesn't make sense to make auto-updates an all-or-nothing situation. Far better to let me choose what I want to keep up to date.
I wish I could delete my installed Skyrim and it's game-breaking Spring 2018 Creation Club update so I could re-install Skyrim off the disc without updating it. That way I could be playing it now without constant freezes and crashes. I don't mind paying for mods, and I don't see why anyone should complain when we pay $300-$500 for the console and usually $70 for a game. How can Bethesda expect anyone to pay even $1.50 if its broken ?
It could have a possibility that only online-games always update automatically.
The online-games need always an update, you can't eh doesn't play these games without an update.
