    Think Games are getting out of hand with updates so large?

    Really unbelievable (unless it is just me) I only have 9 games on my PC. I have a 1 TB drive for these games and just looked at my drive under my computer and it says 10.2 GB free of 931 GB. Only 9 games! Every time you turn around there is a patch or update of 100 GB, 200 gb if I recall correctly one update was almost 500gb. Do you think sizes of updates are getting out of hand or is it just me?

    Meaning maybe I need to get a 2 to 4 Gb drive?. I thought 1 TB would be enough. What size do you use for gaming on PC?

    Games I have installed are:
    Borderlands 2 & 3, Fallout NV & 4, Metal Gear Solid V, Ghost Recon Wildlands, Far Cry ND, Wolfenstein and just installed Metro Exodus.

    honestly 1 tb aint the move anymore, modern warfare itself takes up 20 percent of that.

    I have an almost full 1TB SSD with games and music stuff on it. I don't really care that games are getting bigger as long as they're getting better too.

    It's honestly the companies fault not to optimize the updates, A good example would be GTA. their biggest update was like 7gb and they added 3 months of stuff to the game with that.

    best to get just a cheap HDD for games. Currently, I got a 500GB nvme SSD, three 2TB hdd's, and one 1TB HDD installed. The NVME boot operating system stores everything i need, and games that i love, i will store on this. Otherwise I got 3 TB dedicated to games, 3TB for movies and backups.
