So a theoretically question..

If I got a game (any one) and would like to update that game manually (offline mode) and got 2, 3, 5 or 10 updates for it.
Only the latest one is required huh? The latest one includes everything the earlier updates included as well?
I don't have to install update 1, update 2, update 3 and so on? Or could it differ from game to game?

Why I'm asking is because sometimes an earlier update is bigger than a later one.
Does that mean that an earlier update includes something that the later one doesn't and both are required?
Or could it just be "code" they've cleaned so it's smaller because of that?

Thanks guys!

The era of installing updates sequentially is gone forever, for any consoles or PC games. With fast internet for everyone nowadays, it would be stupid to ask users to download every updates ever created for a game. You just get the latest one, and that's it. Doesn't matter how big it is. Some publishers abuse the users, though... ( :gun:those darn huge Mortal Kombat 11 updates)
