Just started my pre-load of Skyrim from Direct to Drive and it's only 5.1 gb?? How is this massive open game only 5.1 gb and it's supposed to take an average gamer 300 hours to complete? Rage and MW3 were both over 13 gb. Any ideas?

According to steam Oblivion was 5.5gb with all expansions.


Very efficient I'm guessing? haha

Fallout 3 with all expansions only took about 8 or 9 gigs. Bethesda knows how to save space cause they are beast haha.

yes around 5.5gb add 100-120 mods and you have a 30gb+ folder.

Good chance textures will be multi-used in the game. But they will no doubt be compressed also to save space.

Unfortunately people think lots of gigs = much bigger game. Not true, think people will agree with me that RAGE felt small but it used uncompressed textures :P (well campaign was small, but to do everything in the game takes a long time).

Nah.

As long as you get the load order right, it's no problem to run that many.

I use over 50 myself.

And I plan to mod up Skyrim ASAP.
