How old is that and what possibility's does the game have. its indeed not always a matter of harddrive space, but also the quality of the game. For 500 mb, i get a fully operational F-16 under my command, with very detailed radio conversations with many airplanes or control towers to choose from, a extremely detailed land, very realistic avionics and so on, and so on. its now abot 7 - 8 years old (I think). Its called Falcon 4. Does anybody know it?

Well, in Wing Commander: Prophecy, I can command up to 6 (i think {may be more}) different fighters and bombers, high detail everything, decent radio conversations, and everything. You should check it out one day. It's three disks of High-Quality levels (About 50 different missions or so), which change (varies on your mission sucess or failure, and a whole bunch of pure fun (lethal on hardest setting - "nightmare" is an appropriate name).

It's fun. Try the demo, even though the game is 10x better. You can probably get the game off ebay for about £10...

I'lle try it. what is the website URL? (By the way, Falcon 4 isn't 500 mb, but 600 mb. Sorry if this small detaile caused any inconvenience. if so, don't complain. All complaints are redirected to the message boards of bla bla bla....).

one thing I trly enjoy in Falcon 4, is giving orders to you wingmans (you can control max. 4 F-16). You don't have to fly though as a formation leader, you can also just sit back, and wait for your orders. i'm afraid if soembody wants to the demo, he can't. the company who made it (Microprose) is bankcrupt, and the website is down.

I just found a game that's quite fun, and is a mix of WOW and Diablo 2. It's called Fate

I've been having fun with the TableTennisProLite demo. My custom paddle is pink, robin's egg blue, and lavender.

Fate is apparently by WildTangent. DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT! It is well-known that WildTangent programs are always full of spyware and adware.
As for free games, I enjoy playing Cheese In Space occasionally. I don't know where to find it online, though. It's very short (it takes less than three minutes to play to completion) and very stupid (everything is just clicking on little pictures of cheese that appear in the window of the ship, with the exception of the "endboss" which requires pressing Ctrl), but worth playing if you're absolutely desperate for something to play.

Hmm.

Thralni.

It looks like their main site is down at the moment, so I've given you the link to this instead. It's the Gamespot place for Wing Commadner prophecy, which includes the demo download. If that doesn't work, just look around on google or something.

Be warned: WCP also came out for Gameboy Advance, so don't get the two versions confused.

And maybe it's a tad older than I thought.

I generally refrain from downloading anything more than about 5MB unless I really think I need it. And usually it doesn't do what I wanted it to. But anyway.

TW PGA Tour 2003 was over a gig in size, and that's about the biggest game I have. And about the most advanced one to work fully on my computer. With a 40GB hard drive, I can't just go around putting a bunch of GB+ games on there. But 40GB is still more than enough for most all purposes you could need it for.

It's a brilliant game and is well worth it. Just get AdAware and clean up afterwards. I mean, theres no point missing out on a good game (its also only $20) just because your too lazy to download a program to clean up afterwards.
