26. Dead Rising 3

This is happening more and more these days, as every few days, I end up reporting that some anticipated game is going to have an obscenely huge file size, especially for the system it is on. Just this year, The Last of Us: Remastered, Titanfall, inFamous: First Light, Super Smash Bros. for 3DS, and Destiny have all been reported to be absolutely huge. And now we have another one for that list- Dead Rising 3 is, apparently, absolutely gargantuan on PC. And by that, I mean that it’s 30 GB.

Now, Dead Rising 3 is a great game and everything, but it’s also nothing notable as far as video or audio fidelity goes, so I’m really not sure why it’s as heavy on the hard drive as it is. I know that the port is supposed to be unoptimized, so my assumption is that it’s a very literal file dump, with little to no compression, which is what causes it to be this huge.

Anyway, you can pre-load it on Steam now. Might as well get a headstart, maybe that way you’ll actually have the game ready to play when it officially releases.

    its simple… 30gig, 40gig games are much less likely to be pirated. Not to mention most are just ports from console which use dual layer bluray discs so 50gigs is all the same on those, but end up not all the same on a hdd
