Modern games feature impressive state-of-the-art graphics that create a very immersive gaming experience. But all this comes at a cost. These games eat up your hard drive and it seems they’re only getting bigger and bigger.
This might become a problem as the amount of free space on your drives shrinks with every game you install. Checking the system requirements for the games you’re planning to install is of utmost importance. If you’re left with too little free space, you’re bound to encounter issues and errors.
As a quick reminder, the standard PS4 hard drive is 500GB. If you install a game that takes up 150 GB of memory, you can’t really install too many games afterwards. Or if you do, you really need a decent external hard drive.
So, here are the heftiest memory munching games that you can download on your PS4.

All these games are monsters when it comes to download time. Of course, you should only expect to wait even longer when downloading and installing games that are over 70GB in file size compared to 45 GB games.
Depending on your hardware and internet connection, downloading some of these games could take hours. So, grab a cup of coffee, launch Twitch and watch others playing the game you’re downloading.
This, of course, means prolonging the download duration as you’re diverting some of the bandwidth to watching Twitch. But, hey, what difference does it make when you know it will take a couple of hours for your console to install the game.
