For me it was Assassin's Creed IV. As far as I remember it had the longest loading times of any game I have played.

Battlefield 4. Though the only reason I bought mine was because it was an Amazon DotD a month ago or so. It really helps. The loading time when first joining a server is cut way down to what I consider to be an acceptable level. And when levels first load I can immediately start moving and doing stuff. Normally I would see floating guns running around for several seconds until everything loaded. If it wasn't for that DotD I wouldn't have bought the drive though.

edit: Being among the first people loaded into a match generally gives you dibs on any vehicle you might want to use. Also, I need to remember to edit posts not quote myself -_____-

I did not get it just for one game, but a game that really made me consider it even more than I already did was BF4. The loading times are pretty long, and become a LOT more tolerable if you are running it off an SSD.

I didn't get one for any game, I got one because I built a new machine and it didn't feel right for it to not have one.

None, I just bought it when I was building my first PC but I've got Skyrim on it now and I usually put a few multiplayer games like BF 4 on it. Right now I've got Titanfall and that's using up just about all of my space.

I bought mine for desktop performance, but whenever I have BF3 installed it goes on the SSD.

Titanfall is making me feel cramped.

Hopefully Dark Souls II plays nice on HDD.
The best course of action is to just get the information you need, then get out while you're still alive. - destroy everything on GameFAQs
