which pc game requires the most hard disk space? i found stranglehold to be quite large, it requires 15gb of hd space.

#2 Posted by Wasteofmind (8 posts) -

BlackSite: Area 51 is a large game too.

It also requires 15 Gigs, the reason is both games are by Midway and are written in HD (High Definition) format!

The original Unreal Tournament.. my UT folder was an insane amount.. gigs and gigs of mods and maps etc.

Considering i posted news on several UT main pages and ran my own map review site it's no wonder.

I know it's an old thread but what could this game be now? Does new games require more space to play than before.

I think the biggest game I did install was X-Plane 8 with full scenery 70GB yeah... kind of f*ck*ng big for one game. X-Plane 9 have a bit less I believe. Around 60 GB if I remember right.

Flight Simulator X: Deluxe Edition requires 19 gigabytes, if I recall correctly.
