    Those are nothing compared to Crimson Gem Saga and Myst.

    Yep, GTA is way bigger than 1/4 of a gig once it's actually uncompressed and installed.

    Doing nothing of importance.
    Somewhere
    Yeah, GTA is about 180 before install, but takes up about 660mb on the iPod.

    Crimson Gem Saga ranks up there as number one for games I have. It's 700mb before install, and God knows how much space it takes up afterwards...

    Aren't some games not compressed like GTA is?

    If that's so, them CGS could be the exact same size shown on it's iTunes page.

    Probably GTA: Chinatown Wars, or maybe Enviro-Bear 2010 because of its killer graphics.

    Everyone seems to forget the champion : The Weathered Underground with almost 1 Go :D

    Dracula (three parts over 400 Mo), The secret of the mysterious island (750 Mo), The settlers (660 Mo), Driver (593 Mo) are good contenders too.

    Anything with a lot of video or voices will get big fast. The Gameloft games have high-res video intros which I wish could be trimmed to take less space.

    I have a pretty big collection. Here are my top 10 by size according to iTunes. MYST is probably around 700MB nowadays.

    704 MB Jules Verne Secrets of the Mysterious Island
    462 MB Crimson Gem Saga
    404 MB Driver
    399 MB Dexter the Game
    366 MB Dodonpachi Resurrection
    365 MB Cobra Command
    354 MB Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition
    353 MB Broken Sword: Director's Cut
    318 MB Jules Verne's Return to Mysterious Island
    315 MB Alternate Endings

    Runners up: Elmo's Monster Maker (not just for me :)), Chaos Rings, Asphalt 5, Battle for Wesnoth, Space Ace, Street Fighter IV.

    Japanese adventure games are usually huge. For example, Purely is 1,2 GB. It also costs 18 Euro, in case you'd like to start a "most expensive" thread ;)

    While it's not the biggest game in the app store... Spider-Man Total Mayhem is also pretty hefty in size: 467 MB. I don't own it, so I'm not sure if that is just for the download or total install.
