This list could potentially be useful. You should do more, but one thing: remove the "notes." Those snarky comments are not clever nor amusing.

Also, are those file sizes uncompressed? Some of them look like they're compressed, and others look like they aren't. For example, I know for a fact MC3 weighs around 1.9 GB uncompressed.

This list is going to get full soon! You might need more than one person to maintain the main page, unless you have a ton of spare time

And KOTOR is 2.3 GB installed.

There also are a lot of games that explode to over a gig. Like Ms. Splosion Man is just 465 MB but is over a gig.

And The World Ends With You is just 659 MB compressed but isn't it over 2 GB installed? (Currently not on my device to check).

I wish the App Store would also tell you the uncompressed size so people wouldn't have to guesstimate how much space they need, or how many games they need to delete.

Yes, that would be nice. Like my TWEWY example. How in the hell is someone expected to think that a 659 MB download ends up being 2.4 gigs! Typically I assume about double. But nearly 4x the size?

I agree.

It tells you the download size in the App Store anyway.
