There are *tons* of hidden object games for Mac. Take a look at MacGameStore.com.

Since you seem to have a better idea of what's going on here than anybody else in this thread, why do you think it needs to open files for read access and then immediately close them again?

Probably because the windows api is a pain in the butt and recursively walking directories is a pain. I assume what it does is listing all contents of a folder and using CreateFile to find out if the object in question is a file or a folder so it can decide if it needs to walk further down.

On another note, why would you go looking for installed games in ProgramData? Except for a few browser games, nothing really puts any files in there.

I would guess something it recognizes dumps stuff there. On my system it has a whole bunch of game related folders there. EA products in general seem to love that folder as the EA core thing is there which as far as I have seen is responsible for the DRM in Origin.
