    Yeah, it’s not bad. Games have never gotten progressively smaller.

    I’m just the kind of guy who loves to have as much on Steam installed as possible. Like if there’s even a possibility that I might want to play something, I’ll install it. I guess that’s my problem, but if I was doing that on a 250 GB SSD, the 20′s would hurt :P
