Nathan Grayson of Kotaku - "PC Game Install Sizes Are Ballooning And I'm Scared" article:
https://kotaku.com/pc-game-install-sizes-are-ballooning-and-im-scared-1838956525

Notes:
- Red Dead Redemption 2 PC will require 150GB for install
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare [2019 Reboot] PC version will require 175GB of space to install
- Gears of War 4, Gears 5, FF XV and Halo 5 PC versions all take up over 100GB of space to install
- Textures are getting more & more complex...and bigger
- There's not really a practical way to compress textures with little-to-no loss in fidelity, unlike audio

Soon install sizes will exceed the overall space of my main SSD.  It's probably time for me to consider upgrading.
