5 Games That Know How To Use DLC

MMGN.com writes: While we are well aware that a number of developers have gone as far as holding back gameplay elements for DLC after the release, we're also aware of the fact that some DLC actually enhances your gaming experience. So here's five games that truly show us what DLC should be. (Fallout 3, Grand Theft Auto IV, Mass Effect 2, PC, Portal 2, PS3, Xbox 360)

From this list, Portal 2 because the DLC was free

Love me some free DLC. Hell, I don't actually mind paying for it either if it's good. Full expansions like Undead Nightmare are worth the price of admission.

Battlefield 3 !!

Don't forget The Witcher 2.

I'm surprised Borderlands isn't on the list.

When Gearbox saw that the fans hated the ending they made Knoxx's Armory and gave the players all the loot that they were promised but didn't get.

Fallout3 GoTY edition was money well spent.
Relientk77  +   1178d ago
I'm still thinking of picking that up

Best $20 you'll spend on a game this year. I have about 100 hours in it and still haven't done everything.
Burnin  +   1178d ago
better yet... get it from steam for about $15 tops. Mod it to hell & you'll get one of the best current-gen gaming experiences EVER!

Doing it with New Vegas right now and I've lost almost 150 hrs and counting

You could also do this for oblivion which is pretty fun when you put mods on it.

I agree Borderlands had some of the best DLC. I would say Fallout 3 had good DLC but I kept loosing game saves so I didn't finish them, and just so dang glitchy.

Gran Turismo 5 should be on the list
Hicken  +   1178d ago
Yes, it should.

Their is a huge difference between a game with great DLC and a game that was half assed with DLC. GT5 falls in the latter category.

Anyways, Fallout 3 had the best DLC this gen!

The Pit on PS3 is one of the worst piece of DLC I have played because it was so glitchy and I lost my save file 0nce or twice lucky i backed it up but still set me back 2hrs, don't get me wrong the rest are really great.
StreetsofRage  +   1177d ago
Yeah that sucks. The ps3 has a hard time with huge open worlds like Fallout 3 and Skyrim. Their were no problems with the 360 version.
claud3  +   1178d ago
Fallout 3 dlc's were awsome and well used in the game
markoghc  +   1178d ago
Agree, although my opinion is that New Vegas DLCs were even better.
lashes2ashes  +   1178d ago
Let's not forget burnout Best game dlc ever.
ICC_06  +   1178d ago
Reminds me that I need to go and play Ballard of Gay Tony.
hellerphant  +   1178d ago
Yes, yes you do!
ApolloTheBoss  +   1178d ago
And Borderlands. Don't you dare forget Borderlands.

goukijones  +   1178d ago
You put ME3 on this list before Borderlands? No way.
bigbigbig  +   1177d ago
Witcher 2
spektical  +   1177d ago
i cant put fallout 3 up there, half the DLC was broken the other half a drag to play through on the ps3.
HK6  +   1176d ago
No Bad Company 2 on the list for the amazing Vietnam expansion?
