It's only 10 gigs now, later it will be only 30 gigs, a few years from now using the disc to start the download of the entire game will become a norm. I think it's perfectly reasonable to speak up against releasing more and more unfinished products. The fact that we didn't have the Internet 20-30 years ago isn't the only excuse why older games didn't need big release day patches to work properly.That's how projects work, if you don't set a release date, features creep up, tasks go unfinished, paperwork doesn't get done, marketing has no idea when to begin to send out review copies, schedule advertising and so on.
It's just part of life, people in these teams care about what they are doing and will spend every last available minute working on it if the deadline is coming. Why is a 11 GB annoying for you? You can't wait a bit for the download to be done?
I remember how refreshing it was to play Final Fantasy 7 Remake or one of the Yakuza's without having to download ANY day 1 patches, but that pretty much doesn't happen now.
