    Just curious as to what would be the largest video game out there, in terms of file/install size.

    Note sure; the largest I've installed was 10.5GB. The title was the Witcher: Enhanced Edition.

    For me so far, it would be the PC version of GTA4 at around 14gb which came in two discs when the 360 version fits on a 8.5gb dual-layer DVD disc!

    I believe one reason is because the PC version has higher resolution textures, at least what I heard.

    Sacred 2 weighs in at 12 gb

    If you count all the Dawn of War games together, that also adds up to a lot :p
