    The Turbo Grafx CD-ROM box was bigger. Possible bigger than the Adam box, but that's a close one.

    Amiga 1000. So big it came in 2 boxes - one for the monitor, one for the actual system, keyboard, and mouse.

    I know, it's supposed to be a "home computer" and not a games machine, but 99% of the people who bought one did so to play the amazing games that were light years ahead of the consoles at the time. It really did make Nes and Master System look old hat when it was release in '85.

    System box

    < the whole kit working

    Sorry can't find pics of the 1084 monitor box.

    Best machine I ever had. Amiga is awesome

    Yeah, but wasn't the 1084 an optional extra?

    I imagine the biggest game related packaging would be some silly ps2 interactive shaking armchair thingy

    I think there were two SKUs. I got my 1084 in a bundle with the machine, but AFAIK you could also get the machine seperately with an RF modulator to run the system on a normal RF TV.

    The A500's were seperate and came bundled with the RF modulator as standard, but I think most A1000's sold were bundled with the monitor.

    As far as consoles go, the NES Power Set with the Power Pad was pretty large, as was the Atari 5200 box.

    Single game boxes, SNES Bomberman-w-4 player adapter is large, Earthbound for the SNES is also large.

    I kind of throw out the modern huge controller games. They're big because there's so much crap crammed in the box...

    Besides, this is the classic forum...is it not?

    Im guessing probably the first video game Space Wars was probably the biggest, back when you'd need a warehouse to fit a computer that had 1 KB of space on it

    Nah, that was on a minicomputer. Wasn't much bigger than...I don't know, one of those big vending machines that has chip bags in it. Even 'Tennis for Two' wasn't thaaaat huge.

    The Sharp NES Television would have had a pretty big box. The LaserActive's is pretty hefty, too. It really depends, though. You could probably find themed furniture but I don't think a bedroom set or the like is in the spirit of the question.

    I'm surprised people aren't just mentioning arcade cabinets as those took up a lot of space, especially cockpit models.

    One of the Batman games for the Xbox 360 has a massive box. I think the collector's edition of Arkham Asylum

    For just a game (and not including peripherals), Halo: Reach had a special edition that included a diorama of the team. It looked really cool but it was heck to clean the dust from all the crevaces.
