    This info was for the Direct 2 Drive version. Something like 12GB for the download file (if it's in a zip, you extract that to get the exe setup file, so another 12GB), it extracts another 12GB temporary, then 12GB for installed. So at one point in time it takes up something like 36GB (or 48GB total with zip file download). Or something... That's it tho. If you have the retail copy it's only 12GB. Jeez.

    Who cares? A 250gb HDD (will take 50 games on average, even more maybe) is like £40 nowadays.

    50GB for installation process isn't too outrageous. These installation program are usually F'in ratarded when it comes to space management. They kinda figure that since the files are only temporary that it doesn't matter how much space it takes up since it'll be gone when it's done. That's really retarded since taking up the least amount of space possible is usually the best idea. Chances are it copies all the data from the DVDs to a temp folder, unpacks the files in the temp folder, then makes copies of them into the folder you said to install it to. I don't see how that can come out to 50GB, but who knows.

    OBLIVION takes up 13.1 gb on my PC, and I have about a 100 HUGE mods installed (including VERY high-res texture replacers....4096x4096), plus every official plugin, plus Knights of the Nine, and Shivering Isles.

    I have 200+ hours in that game and I'm nowhere NEAR done (not the head of every faction yet, haven't finished the main quest either).

    THAT's a lot of content.

    HOW IN THE HELL IS STRANGLEHOLD USING UP 12.6 GIGS????

    i guess is from the fact that it's not coded properly..just a bad x360 port, but not in terms of framerate..

    Yep, cut scenes and graphics are what make a game big, not much else. Gameplay can make stuff like Oblivion big.
