Installing games

when you install a game on the hard drive would it still run even if the game is really scratched?

Hi there, if the game can complete the download to the HDD usually you will have no problems as the disc is only needed to boot up the game.

Also if your disc is scratched and have a friend with another copy of the game that isn't, installing their copy should enable you to play with the scratched disc.

If you manage to install a game then you can still be affected by scratches on a disc. If the scratch goes across the security/boot sector of the disc then it is possible it could still prevent you from playing as it will be unable to perform the security check required for installed games.
