I wish a video like this would have the views a Miley Cyrus or Nicki Minaj song would have.

We live in a Society which worships narcissistic, self indulgent, ignorant, talentless morons who are obsessed with their looks more so than with anything else. This toxic behavior is then adopted by the younger generation and so on and so forth.

Look at the people in charge! Trump, a big political figure now, a person so ignorant and hot headed you could swear he appeared on a reality tv show...oh wait.

But its not only him, mediocrity is celebrated by the masses. Atrocities in music and film are enjoyed by billions. People like the Kardashians have a huge following, one you'd wish famous scientists or poets would have.

But no, we are more interested in the people with fake tits and huge asses. Because thats who we people are nowadays.

Only if you use lossy compression. For example, PNG is a non-lossy compression method (literally a zipped BMP that's unzipped on the fly) and JPG is a lossy one.

Uncompressed anything is a meme. Only thing you lose by compressing image data is a miniscule amount of processing power (irrelevant for a 2D platformer that has barely any demands on the processor anyways) and only thing you lose by using variable bitrate MP3 instead of FLAC for audio is nothing, since human ears can't hear the difference anyway.

We can discuss this shit.
You're implying that loading 200Mb and decompressing them with a properly coded multithreaded algorithm is slower than performing an access to 1Gb on a mechanical hard drive
I think devs are just lazy, and slap as much shit inside the project without worrying about space issues. Making a customer download a 4Gb patch weekly is easier than properly testing before release.

As a programmer and developer, i can assure you that "smaller and faster" are essential today as ever. In a world where people get instant gratification, customers want everything to be fast and ready as soon as possible, so making huge files, or making long loading times, or making inefficient algorithms is potentially a lost client.
It's also a coder pride, makign a fast and efficient code makes your electro dick longer. Usually people that are uncapable of making clean and fast code are also incompetent and dumb
