How about a sticky that lists games and the load differences if you install? I searched for this and couldn't find one anywhere so if I missed it sorry. Since some games make no difference and at least 1(Halo 3) actually goes slower it would be nice to know if it was worth it.Alot of games do have a decent load time difference I read somewhere Mirrors Edge was like 14s a load screen. There is 1 on CAG.com but I think it would be updated and maintained more adequately here. Thanks for your timehttp://http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=202456&highlight=installing+games

gta4 seems to load quicker when installed, that's the only one ive really noticed, fable 2 seems to take forever whether's it's installed or not more so since i downloaded the dlc so tht might b y

I would say that bigger games such as Fable 2 and GTA IV run much faster when installed

These replys are what I'm talking about i would really like to know what game saves what amount of time. Especially for those of us with large collections and with the 120gb only holding so many games you could install currently played games, 5-7 or whatever, and then switch them out as your priorities change. I guess the main reason is some of them don't make any difference in gameplay.
