Or maybe his comp has low space?

Makes more sense to think he's bandwidth-capped.

Deus Ex, StarCraft, Diablo 2.

Or maybe he is making a creative way to say "list your favorite old school games".

I don't really know many, maybe Starcraft and counterstrike?

GTAIII comes in at around 900mb, still a fairly fun game, and quite cheap now too.

#12 Posted by ChiliDragon (8467 posts) -
If you're looking for small games, any one from gog.com probably comes in under 1GB, given that even their biggest ones still had to fit on one CD.
#13 Posted by broken_bass_bin (7514 posts) -

Half-Life
Deus Ex
Braid
System Shock 2
Quake 2
Morrowind (I think?)

#14 Posted by gbrading (8057 posts) -

Darwinia is less than 60mb and it is a superb game. DEFCON, also by Introversion Software, is similarly under 60mb and is also great.

#15 Posted by -Master_St3ve- (1421 posts) -
Torchlight! Such an awesome game. Best $5 ever spent.
#16 Posted by Rheorin (211 posts) -
Why has no one mentioned Warcraft 3? One of the big reasons WoW was so popular.

Umm, Unreal 2K4 is like 6 gigs when installed..

Alot of games have around 1 gig installers/iso's, but their installation files decompress to well over a gig. If it's the download you're worried about, your options will open up more.

Planescape : Torment is more than 2 Gigs. and I think Grim Fandango is a little more than 1 Gigs.

My choices are Age of Mythology and Fallout.

Ah, so you're under 14 years of age. How cute. Now why don't you leave the answers to us PC gaming veterans who've been gaming before you were born. Ciao.

I assumed TC meant size before install, not after installation. Hardly any games today would be that small once decompressed and installed.

You clearly haven't been gaming long enough to know what you're talking about.

#31 Posted by Same_Jeans_On (1171 posts) -

3. Torchlight

4. Heroes of Might and Magic III

#33 Posted by Spoonoop (178 posts) -

Mount and Blade Warband is just under a Gig. Regular M&B was around 500-600MB. Though with mods the game file can be quite large. The only other games on my comp under one Gig are Torchlight and AoEII.

Dynamically spawned textures and extremely low-poly count models iirc.

Still amazed they managed to keep it in 96 kB.

#39 Posted by XaosII (16573 posts) -

I thought this was for some "mobile" gaming by using a USB thumb drive to store the game. I remmeber putting Demigo at 1.5 GB when it came out and playing on my college campus comps.

serious sam the first/second encounter (second is better, but first is good)

(the lack of sam in this thread is disturbing)

I thought that without TFT it was under 1GB seeing as how it comes on just one CD. I guess maybe it's all compressed if it's really more than that.

EDIT: Apparently I am right and it it less than 1GBhttp://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20090531055409AA1WVQc

That's what I said a few posts ago. Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos alone is under 1GB. And I can't believe nobody else voted for it. Heck, I'm not really a fan of strategy games but I absolutely loved this game. It's a real treasure chest.

Yeah that game is a gem. It's one of the best and most accessible RTS games ever.
