About Windows 8 File History and Potential Alternatives

I did a quick search online, and it seems that unlike backup tools that shipped with previous versions of Windows, File History is more selective about which files and folders it will backup. This worries me, because my primary reason for backing up is to conserve both game programs, and game saves, and I am worried that File History will NOT back them up because they don't explicitly belong in the Library section of Windows.So my question for this post is: Will File History automatically take care of my game saves, or will I have to potentially look somewhere else for a solution to this problem? If it's the latter, any suggestions as to what program I can use to backup my precious game files?
