The reason games like sonic and more so games like uncharted, tlou, ff13 etc take so much space is due to cut scenes, take it all away and you're left with a 1-2 GB game. Sometimes it is nice to get away from interactive movies, I'll give that to Nintendo and the indie scene.


Take a game like FFVII, which spans 3 discs on PS1. One would think that means it could be as big as 2.1GB, but only the cutscenes are unique on each disc (most of them, as some are simple transition cutscenes that are accessed on more than one disc). The actual game is less than 400MB, and that is duplicated onto each disc.

Nintendo has always been known for being remarkably efficient, in just about everything. I'm not surprised it includes amount of content on discs :P Some games are larger though due to sheer amounts of content (Such as Smash Bros)

It is quite funny. With so much bad Nintendo news people have now begun praising nintendo because they made a game with a small file size...

Is this really something to praise them for? Whats next, praising them for using Helvetica font on one of their game cases?

In a way, it IS something to praise them for.

If someone can make something great, while using fewer resources than everyone else, and having the end result turn out the same, if not better, than yes, you should be praising them for that.

It's like if a guy with one arm went against Mayweather, and got all the way to the 12th round with him, only to lose by decision.

Do you say, "Well, he sucks at boxing"? No, because he did as good a job as any one else, and he had fewer resources.

Both of you should look up what the words "Craftsmanship" and "Efficiency" mean
