Rockstar is fast becoming a great example of a company who has a good reputation getting away with crap that EA would get slayed for.
Basically this... Ain't gonna change anytime soon unfortunately. I only buy DLC when they are super super cheap or if I want to support the devs because I enjoy the base game. I feel most people do the same so it's here to stay.

I have no issue paying for DLC - if it's done with the original intent of expanding or enhancing a game that is already out and you've completed.
The old expansion packs were great for giving the old game some longevity.

The issue these days is that they seem to be releasing games that aren't complete. Sell half the stuff that should be included in the core title as DLC.

It's not just Games tho. It's everywhere in life. You want to buy a car? Awesome it's 27k oh. You want an actual steering wheel? That's part of our 'drive' package so that's an extra 3k. Oh and a spare wheel? Yes the recovery package is only $2000. ABS? Stability Control? ka ching.

Why basic safety equipment (Stability/Traction/reversing cameras) are still 'optional' on any car these days is crazy.
*edit don't let the facts get in the way of a good rant. Stability is now compulsory on new cars in Aus.

Anyhoo. back on point.

They all suck but we're stuck with it. They're here to make money by entertaining us and the average attention span of a 14 year old means that new games or DLC must be released every 6 weeks or the kids forget it exists. Plus they know the power of the kids pull on mums purse strings. Then every twelve months rinse, release, repeat. COD 27 out soon!

It's gamers fault

The Ea's and Ubisofts of the gaming industry only do these things because gamers have shown them they'll accept it, they'll bump and whine about it...then pay any price asked for a half finished bug ridden pile of crap that would never have been considered ready for release 10 years ago.

It's like buying a car, but when you pick it up it will have bicycle wheels on and somewhere down the line you will be able to get the normal wheels but it will cost you a third of the car's price. There is a name for it, DLW, downloadable wheels. Oh by the way, you can only download one new wheel at a time with about a 4 month waiting period for each new wheel.

If you think EA are bad then clearly you haven't even looked at Bungie who has charged a whopping £40 for their latest dlc/expansion of their Destiny game.

They have now added a vendor in the game selling cosmetic useless stuff which can only be purchased via a currency which has to be bought with real money.

its the way to go these days.

Microtransactions in a non-F2P title? What are people thinking, buying into this?
