Maybe, maybe not. It depends. Obviously if you only play a couple games then sure, it is enough. I have 177GB of installed games and that is only going to get bigger. I install them all on a mechanical drive and my 256GB SSD is just for Windows and some programs.

It depends on how many games you have that takes up huge ammount of space. The games I have installed only take up 120GB of space on my Mechanical 500GB HD. You can always get another on in the future if you happen to fill it up sooner or later.
