    I don't even want to think about the future of video games if this trend continues. They need to be slapped in the face... with a baseball bat, maybe that'll set them straight.

    The funny thing is that you don't have to buy any DLC unless you really want to. I honestly don't see a point to any DLC unless it adds to the game and even then I won't get it unless it's for a game I'm really into and it adds more than maps.

    The Jersey Shore Section in the Xbox Avatar marketplace is the worse thing i ever seen in my entire life.



    but railworks is the most hilarious example of DLC ever made.


    There's a Major Inside Joke about it on the Pc Gaming forums due to it whenever they have a steam Discount sale for it.


    seriously look at the DLC Prices (all DLC Totaling at $1,600+):

    I'm surprised the EA Sports stuff, particularly the Tiger Woods Golf stuff didn't make the list, considering what a load of crap having to buy different shirts for your golfer is.

    The RPG thing is pretty bad, I hate how Nippon Ichi Studios America adds 50+ items to every one of their games, half of which is useless crap like characters or horrible accessories, but that Tales of Vesparia example works well too.

    Just like games, there's going to be very few good add-on content and a whole lot of crap that makes little sense.

    Wow, that's some pretty messed up stuff! $45 just for weapon skins that you can't even see? DLC is almost always crappy, but BFBC2 Vietnam was the best DLC I ever downloaded.

    I don't buy DLCs for any game. I figure if there meant to be so great they would of been added into the game.

    Don't take this the wrong way. Why is it when people spend their money poorly or people do 'selfish' things to get money people are always saying "THERE'S CHILDREN STARVING IN THE WORLD, YOU KNOW!!" or something along those lines. Seriously it get's dull fast and getting it shoved down your throat so much makes you dehumanized towards it.

    I guess I take it more to heart because when I spent a month in Ukraine with the family I sponsor I got to see how life really is for them. They found their youngest daughter in a sewer when she just a couple of months old. They decided to take her in despite not having enough to live on already (they couldn't bear giving her over to the orphanage because they knew what would become of her). Due to the collapse of Communism most families cannot make ends meet and the government refuses to help (long live capitilism). So when I see people spend their money on things like hairdos for their fake man but refuse to help those who truly need it I get a little offended.

    But you are right that is my thing and it is not up to me to judge how people spend their money.
