So many Visual C++ Redist can I unistall some?

Hi, in my uninstall programs, I have so many versions of Visual C++ Redistributables from installing so many games and programs. Do I need all the different versions for the respective programs or can I just use the latest one?

I'm assuming those games/programs need the redistributable for a reason. I personally wouldn't touch it

Agreed, each one represents some Visual C program that has been installed. Uninstalling one would uninstall the associated app.
