It has been a year since I last researched the most powerful storage pig on the market, but I am back and these games are bigger than ever. Some new content will inevitably be added to the 2021 list. These games can’t help but suck up the entire SSD, and they must be collected and recorded in the name of science.
I have been looking around for the most broken big game on the planet today. My journey took me across land and launchers to find the most extensive, detailed or simple large game installation directories you might find on a gaming PC-some are so thick that they usually cannot be installed on a 128GB SSD . Heck, some are too dense even for 256GB drives.
I admit that I cheated the first time I tweeted, “Which game now takes up the most storage space on your PC?” on the PC Gamer Twitter account. Thanks to everyone who responded to me—except you, the one who said Chip’s Challenge. I did something similar this year, and I have disturbed the staff of PC Gamer and checked the comments to find out the suggestions of all of you.
Of course, I have checked many libraries of my own gaming PC, but it turns out that the point and click detective game does not actually take up much space.

You are unlikely to be looking for the largest game to load on your gaming PC, but considering that some of the games that consume storage capacity today are also the most popular games-such as Call of Duty and Forza Horizon 5-it may be very It’s hard to avoid applications that take up a lot of bytes cannibalize your new SSD.
If you have to be careful where or where to allocate precious bits, it may be useful to understand which games are storage pigs before you put $50 in a game. After all, this is a public service.
All game installation sizes are correct when I checked and are only related to PC. These may change over the course of the year, especially considering how some game developers master the art of dark magic and somehow reduce the installation size to a fraction of what it used to be.
For example, Fortnite reduced the installation size of the entire game by 60GB, to about 30GB overall. Tim Sweeney may have awakened some great evil and destined all of us to enter the seventh circle of hell, but at the same time, it’s a great deal for a budget-friendly Fortnite PC build. Good move. “Battlefield” and “Call of Duty” seem to have achieved similar feats in 2021.
The list before you is not all the contents of all storage pigs, but it should give you a damn good idea. There are also a large number of games with mods, maps, and DLC that can really help push up these numbers, so even some of the big scammers are not as big as they come.

Although the base games of all four games are not that huge, relatively speaking, you can certainly make them like this in an instant. All you need is a module manager and a trigger finger…
- Gary’s mod
- Ethnic pruning
- Fallout 4
