Do it in OOP and you will make it big.
You might have a lot of boilerplate, which is a PITA but not "big". It would be big if, say, functional programming was a much better fit for the problem.
Quote from Kevlin Henney:
"Once you reach a particular size, anything beyond that is no longer a reflection of functionality."
It's often true that inside a big system, there's a small system struggling to get out. But as a blanket statement, this quote is just a platitude.

The Facebook iOS app has over 18000 classes. How do you compare it to Quake 3 that can render 30FPS of a 3D world on Pentium 3?
18000 classes is a joke. But you can't compare it to the portion of a game that renders graphics, which is highly algorithmic and doesn't require much OO, although your point might be that this wouldn't stop some people from trying to do it that way.
