PC Games brought up the interesting topic of increasing the size of games. Journalists of the publication drew attention to the size of AAA games in 2023 and came to the conclusion that we are already living in the era of 100-gigabyte games, and most players are not ready for this.
See for yourself, here is the size of AAA games that have already been released in 2023:
- Star Wars Jedi: Survivor – 130 GB
- Forspoken – 120 GB
- Redfall – 100 GB
- The Last of Us Part 1 – 100 GB
- Diablo IV – 90 GB
- Wild Hearts – 80 GB
- Hogwarts Legacy – 73 GB
- RE4 Remake – 56 GB
- Dead Island 2 – 45 GB
At the same time, according to the latest Steam survey, users’ drives in 25% of cases have only 100-249 GB of free space, that is, only for one or two games. And although the total volume of user drives exceeds 1 TB, service games that have been played for years and games that have been postponed also take up a lot of space.
The author of PC Games, who lives in Great Britain, also has a low speed of downloading games on top of this problem, which in Ukraine, thank God, does not exist.
And how many games do you keep on SSD/HDD at the same time? And do you have a lot of free space left?
