I got onto my pc today to do some gaming, I tried Crossout, Thief, State of decay 2, far cry 5. They would either just sit on black screen for 10+ min or when I click the screen it would say not responding. My system specs are i7-4790K, 32GB DDR3 1866Mhz, r9 290x 4gb, 250GB Samsung SSD (BOOT), 1TB seagate 7200rpm HDD (games). Is this a hardware or software issue?

Sounds a lot like a hardware issue. Are these games installed on your HDD or SSD?
Either way, try a S.M.A.R.T. program like CrystalDiskInfo to check your HDD/SSD health.

Sorry if my post seemed rude, that is never my intention.

All my games are installed on the HDD. I will try that program out, I just picked up the HDD about 2 months ago.

As stupid as it sounds, from experience I can say a HDD will either die in its first half year or not for like 10 years.

The symptons you described sound exactly like an HDD bad sector issue.

 

You could always try to install any one of these games to your SSD to check if the issues are gone with that.
