I was studying the size comparisons of Godzilla and Kong's current sizes compared to their older counterparts, and is it just me, or are they becoming a bit too oversized?

 

(The current size of Godzilla and Kong in the Monsterverse)

 

(Monsterverse Godzilla compared to his original Showa counterpart)

 

Do you think the constant size changes are overkill? Or is bigger better?

Smaller is better for tokusatsu. It allows for more detailed miniatures and for the effects style to create more efficient shots that place characters with the monster. Koichi Kawakita once lamented that making Godzilla 100 meters in the Heisei series was a mistake for this very reason and had hoped he would go back to something more manageable in the future. This eventually happened in the Millennium series, of course, but Kawakita was no longer a part of the series by then.

The anime/Hollywood monsters can get away with bigger due to the start-from-scratch, digital nature of animation and CG. But the risk it runs there is making the monsters so big that it's difficult for the characters to relate to them--It certainly makes shots including both more difficult. Sometimes this is the point in order to convey a more "god-like" separation between the two. Other times it's just a nuisance for scenes that include some sort of connection between character and monster.

Godzilla Reached 300 feet in the 90s…

Honestly I’m fine with it. I don’t want to see a Godzilla that gets absolutely unseeable in skyscrapers.

I'm fine with them being the sizes that they are, but I feel like they might be pushing it a little with their constant growth, considering that Godzilla's almost 400ft tall and Ghidorah's over 500ft tall. Personally, I always felt that Godzilla's size in the Heisei series (287-328ft tall) was a good size for him. Going over 400ft seems a bit too crazy (Godzilla Earth being over 980ft tall was way too oversized in my opinion).

You just made me think of when I was younger, I made a Godzilla that was 8000 feet tall. At that point I feel like I crossed a line

I do like how massive he's become, but at the same time I feel like he doesn't really need to be over 400ft, he's already large enough and powerful enough, that him exceeding that height seems a little like overkill.

I personally though that him being that big was a little ridiculous, he didn't really need to be that big to be considered a major threat.

Also, that moment when you realize that Kong's axe was 2x bigger than he was in Kong: Skull Island...

it was a device to show passage of time. Godzilla earth was already impossibly powerful when he was 150 ft

How Big is Godzilla Earth?!? / Godzilla Size Comparisons / New Anime  Godzilla Earth Size! (spoiler) - YouTube

There are two kinds of stories, the ones you live and the ones you make up. And nobody knows the difference, and I don't ever tell which is which.
