    I know it can increase loading times, cause textures not to load properly and corrupt data but Is that it?

    That doesn't necessarily mean the hard drive is failing. It could be other issues. You better wish it is the HDD because it is the only thing that is easily replaceable.
    Make sure you have a backup of your save games and start considering replacing the hard drive with another drive, perhaps even SSD, if you can afford it.
