This is a question going out to all gamers who prefer to download digital copy of games on platforms such as steam, xbox live, PSN, crappy origin etc. The question is What is the longest time you have had to wait for a game to download also what was the game you had to endure for?

The other night, a game took 14 hours to download. I have a slow conection, and it was around 15 gigabytes. One gigabyte per hour, roughly. GOTTA GO FAST

Back in the day when I had dial-up, I went to download a demo for a Sim City or Rollercoaster Tycoon game.

I was to wait about a year and a half for its completion. And this wasn't initial inaccuracy; I gave it a day and it had subtracted a day from the estimated time of arrival.

Why do I think so fondly of this? Hah.

My internet is sub par. It downloads at or around 1 GB per hour. TF2 was 14 GB I believe, thus in turn, 14 hours.

My internet is ridiculously slow when it comes to downloading. I remember downloading Morrowind, which was only a little over 1GB, and I had to do it overnight.

Easily a day and a half to download World of Warcraft trial client like a bajillion years ago on my crappy third world country-esque internet. Why did I bother?

I had about 3 days worth of downloading all the patches for World of Warcraft when I first got it, the actual number of 3 days isn't accurate for the time if all the downloads were consecutive it would be more like 1 and a half days, but the main patches took about 5-7 hours each and as such I left them on over night to come back to them complete and then need to start the next download. Because they couldn't do them all in a row by themselves for some stupid reason.

Mass Effect 3 took me at least 3-4 days. From whenever they allowed pre-loading to about a day after release.

Portal 2. It took about 2 days for the fucking thing to download. I have EXTREMELY slow internet. I can only download big shit between 1AM and 6AM because of HughesNet's bullshit Fair Access Policy, or FAP for short. I really fucking hate living in a rural area where I can't get fast internet and a good ping.

Also, I Hate PC Gaming As They Have The Best Games In The Universe And Features. For Example, Team Fortress 2. I Am A Hardcore TF2 Fan.I Have To Play On Xbox 360 Because I Have The Crappiest Video Card in The World.(I Am Not Saying Xbox Is Shi*) I Am TOO Annoyed As They Get Man VS Machine And Hats Etc. Its My Absolute Fuc*ing Dream To Get A Decent Computer/Laptop.Note To Valve : Care About The Xbox/PS3 A Bit Fuc*ing More Okay?

With the Xbox 360's RAM being as low as it is, coupled with the fact that TF2 has gotten hundreds of updates... it's just not possible.

And even then, Valve wanted to add what they could but for free, but Microsoft wasn't having it. So they tossed the idea. Microsoft also charges publishers when they patch or add content to their games.

Probably Team Fortress 2. That game is around 10 gigs, if not more.

12.8 gigs and it just continues growing with all the new content they keep adding.

Team Fortress 2 is also the game that took me longest to download. I remember it took about three hours before it was finally ready. Though from the looks of this thread my internet connection is not-so-bad apparently.

I'd had Skyrim download on an Xbox for about three days. It was annoying because the connection we had with the Xbox was horribly, horribly slow and the game obviously isn't small. It was agonizing.

I didn't actually wait, but the estimated time for Portal 2 was two weeks and by morning it had stretched to a month. I live in a campus hotel and our Wi Fi is probably akin to a 2002 dial-up connection.

After getting inFAMOUS for free after that whole PS3 hacking deal, it took three days for that to download and when I downloaded DC Universe Online, that was another two or so days.
