Possibly stupid question about an inherited MacBook. How do I free up space on the computer?

This MacBook I inherited runs OS X.4.11. I need to free up some space -- am trying to install a game (file size is ~4GB), but I get an error saying the disk space is full. Sure enough, there's only about 4.3 GB free on the hard drive. Is there anything I can do to free up space? (Doesn't it seem like there should be more?) I don't even know where to start looking.
There are some old folders from OS 9, which I'm assuming I can get rid of. Aside from that, I don't really know where to start.
