DLC=downloadable content for a specific game.
below i will be generalizing, but keep in the back of your mind GoW3 (gears of war 3).
If you are like me, you are tired for paying for DLC. I'm not talking about all DLC, only a very select group. however, this DLC in particular is beginning to become all too commonplace in the video-game market.
I'm talking about DLC that comes out less then 2-3 months after a game releases. why should i-as the consumer-pay more for something that literally JUST came out?? why was it not PART OF THE ORIGINAL GAME??? i can understand content that needed a little more time to develop, like 3 months or more, but anything less then that is unacceptable.
unfortunately the average video-game consumer is becoming so unintelligent that they will literally p*ss their money away. props to marketers and companies for finding this strategic money-making maneuver in the short time after a game's release.
and i do believe in DLC to increase the life-span of most video games. if you like the game, you should be able to get the most out of it. however, i am finding that the video-game industry is shifting to greed and a need to feed profits. honestly i don't blame the system; this is how every industry sector must operate (except the public sector). i'm simply angry at my fellow gamer collective for allowing this to finally develop.
stay with the masses and feed the machine or take a stand and think critically; it's your call. vent over!
