What is an .DEM file?

File extension dem is most likely best known for its use for files created when recording matches in computer game Counter Strike (or other Half-Life clones) and DOTA, DOTA 2. These records are often shared between users and watches as replays.

The very same dem suffix was also used in old Quake/Hexen II computer game for recorded games, that could be re-played in the game. In case of multi-level record, the game saved the file with pak file extension.

Also, in some computer games like Unreal Tournament, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield game, or the the classic Descent, there were some files with file extension DEM, that contained demonstration of the game usually recorded within the game.
