    Resetting would do this:

    • All your personal files and apps will be removed.
    • All user accounts will be removed.
    • Your PC settings will be changed back to their defaults.
    • If you have more than one drive (partition) on the Windows disk, you will have the option to remove all files on only the Windows drive or all drives on the disk.

    As apps would be removed, the game would also be removed, provided if it is installed.

    If you choose keep my files, the files would not be removed.I suspect remove is choosen by default.
