Color tags in the OP, and for the list starting at L seem to be broken.

I've been using this thread for years, and I want to say thank you to all the contributors!

 

I have a game to add to the index.

 

Full Auto, installing greatly decreases load time, I'd say it should be listed as Green.

Diablo III 6.9 GB

 

Haven't timed the load speed yet, but it already seemed fast off disc. Blizzard did a great job with the caching I think.

I still cannot believe this thread is going after 5 years. I've wiki'd the post (thought it already was, sorry!) It also seems the wiki.cheapassgamer.com isn't working anymore? Does anyone have an old backup, I'm not sure where the first post left off and where the wiki continued.

 

I don't have a 360 anymore but I hope this thread continues to help people :)

This thread is great. I had a 360 a few years ago that my brother used and blew up before I got around to using it, but I have a few jRPGs that I'd like to play on it if I ever get it fixed/buy a new one. Looks like they're all greatly helped by installing, too. Big thumbs up!

Been thinking about picking up the Walking Dead retail disc versions. The vanilla edition or the game of the year edition? 

Does installing to the hard drive help with the glitches/freezes/lag issues for the 360 versions?

If not, I might look at the PS3 versions then.  Thanks ahead.

8/16/2014 Edit: 

Just went through the entire list and calculated how much space I would need for every 360 game I own.  578.95GB of hard drive space would be needed if I were to put every single game I own installed to my 360.  Almost 600GB, I think now that it might be a bad idea to even bother trying to install everything I own.

I guess I should figure out which ones have the highest replay value.  Might just buy a 3rd party 320GB hard drive from Amazon since my 120 GB phat/elite 360 is practically full from Games with Gold. 

I was thinking about 500GB hard drive, but have a feeling I will need more technical know-how to get it working on my 360.

Anyone happen to have any updates for newer games?

Thanks for everyone who contributed to this list.  I still have my Xbox 360 S console  and I am trying to extend the life of my console as long as possible. 

 

By installing my games on the external hard drive for games with improved loading times and that I use often, I hope to reduce the wear and tear on my optical disc drive, decrease loading times and noise produced,  and extend its life a little longer. 

 

External hard drives are relatively inexpensive nowadays and easily replaced, while they have stopped manufacturing Xbox 360 consoles, so replacing them will become more and more expensive in the future.

Keep in mind that the reported load times are all probably from installing to the internal drive, not an external drive. As far as I know, the 360's USB speed is slower compared to the internal drive's SATA connection.

Thanks. I also have a 1 TB external HD along with my 260 GB internal drive.  That might be the reason some games are taking longer to install and download.

Not sure how relevant this list still is, but I've cleaned up the first post since we have the WIKI. I've saved the original post with all BBcode and formatting to my Google drive in the event a backup is needed.

 

Cheers to the community for keeping this going for so long! :D/
