Editing video files is unlikely to touch anything outside of /home,
/var or /tmp. Installing lots of games? /usr/local or /opt, probably.
Or maybe /home again. Either way, we've already established that the
bulk of the disk space is allocated to /home and /var (on my machines,
I have /opt and /usr/local as separate filesystems, too, to cope with
things that might want to install there).
