We're spoiled. Back in the day you could fit large games onto a floppy or two. I know, times have changed. But think of it this way. Developers had less space to work with so they found ways to cheat and do tricks with game engines and textures. This way they could reduce the required size for game installs and the cost of disks.

We're spoiled with our massive amounts of cheap storage. Game developers know it and just dump huge files into games and don't think twice.

Metal Gear Solid 4 isn't a PC game so it can't be on the list but Kojima had to cut down on the sound quality and compress it so it would fit the 50GB Blu-Ray disc.

GTA IV takes 15.0GB
