    I am just downloading what must be the biggest game download i have ever done. The Elder Scrolls Online requires 80 gb of Hard Drive space, also the download speed is restricted to about 4.5 mbps. I woke up and really fancied playing it again for some reason. I think it might be finished a week next Wednesday. Whats the biggest you have downloaded ?.

    It took all evening, overnight and well past breakfast time to download Serious Sam 1&2 on a slow dial up connection about 20 years ago. No idea how big it was but each game was available on a 700 MB CDs.

    How times change.

    Modern Warfare. Fun game but damn, it took forever to download and install. And when it did install for the first time, you then had to download “expansions” to get multiplayer and co-op. It. Took. For. Ever.

    The other annoying thing is that I’ve got a 500gb PS4. MW took up almost half of my hard drive. And every update require free space equivalent to the size of the game. So effectively my PS4 could only have MW installed. Takes the piss.

    It certainly feels like dial up again with the size of these games nowadays lol.

    I remember the time having to ask my parents to play quake online.
