The average 3D game loads 400MB, and this is weighted due to a lot of older 3D games that were made before the newer chipsets became common.
You will not find many A level titles that are less than 750mb, if 3D.
BTW, the install total that the market shows is NOT the actual total on the device. Understated.
It's not even 12GB remaining.
It's 9.6GB remains after you first switch on.
It's also not just games that are effected either.
I have quite a few program's that have heavy data files.
I won't mention any of the medical Apps but I also have SkySafari Pro which requires a total of 850MB of storage.
As you correctly say in order to run these Apps I for one will have to juggle install/uninstall which is hardly what I would call to be asked of a Flag Ship device.
