I don't like DLC that feels like it should have been part of the main game. Mass Effect 2, one of my favorite games of all time, was guilty of this. Rockstar's Lost and Damned and Ballad of Gay Tony, however, are DLC done right.


This. I hate 90% of DLC, but because of the way it's handled. Not because I hate the idea of DLC in general.

It used to be that exceptional PC games would get expansion packs months or years after release, and most of the time consoles would miss out on that.
DLC was to be the perfect solution, but then ass hat companies like EA saw it as an excuse to screw the consumer for a buck.

So yeah, DLC sucks this gen. But every now and then a company will do it right (GTA, RDR, Fallout).


That.

And the internet connection problem applies to me, so I always support disc-based DLC or GOTY editions that come with it, when I can.
Its only like 70 years away. By then, ill just be hitting my stride. Like the PS3. - Skul_

Can you edit the poll? If so, add more options like 'I like DLC but only if adds lots of new content and isn't expensive', 'I only like free DLC', or 'I like big expansions but hate map packs.'
Fallout 3 isn't Oblivion with guns, it's Fallout 3 with Guns.

It really depends on the DLC for me. For example: I never bothered with RE5's DLC, but when the Leviathan DLC for ME3 comes out, i'll buy it with no hesitation. If the DLC really adds to the game itself, I'll definitely buy. I would vote maybe, if that was a choice.

Those seem like expansion packs, or standalone games. But, yeah Rockstar does DLC right.

I support big expansion style DLC like BS2 Minervas den not the blatant milking and content locked on the disc DLC.

Sadly we get more milking than anything and that is why I no longer buy games at full price anymore.
Last gen I bought over 30 games at full MSRP , this gen I have only bought my 2 launch games at full price just enough to see them blatantly strip mine the hell out of Oblivion and understand what this gen was going to be all about and that is milking money burning fanboyz to death at the expense of everyone else.
