I've been using a 2TB WD hard drive for several years, and recently it has started to spike to very high rates when I play video games that my computer used to be able to easily handle.

Not sure if there's anything I can do or if I just need new storage.

Run the WD diagnostic program. If it passes look at your temperatures. Speccy can do this.
