    Valorant really did a great job in this aspect. The final game size is less than 9GB. The graphic are pretty good too IMO.

    who the hell puts up with download times like this?

    in the indie game scene, an actually independant title (unlike smug shits likr no mans sky) will lose something like HALF its potential players if it takes longrr than 40-60 seconds from download to start screen.

    what in the jell is activision using all that space for? what ate their models and textures? hundreds of megabytes a piece?
