Hearthfire for PC is Pointless

Leviathyn.com | I think the idea behind this DLC is awesome. In RPGs, especially the Elder Scrolls series, I really get into the whole homestead idea. It’s nice to have a place for your character to store loot with accessible tools like crafting benches or enchanting tables. I like the added roleplaying dimension of having followers and spouses staying with you at your house. I know that many players don’t care about the housing part of Skyrim, and care even less about DLC that allows more customization. (Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Hearthfire DLC, PC)

dlc on pc of any kind is pointless, we can just make new levels and share them with friends

this is how pc has always been

a big FU@K YOU to bethesda and your horse armor, you ruined gaming forever

Some ppl don't use mods and user created content.

Here is a catch 22 for PC. If devs make the game open, it will sell on PC. But by making it open users will create content that will compete with the devs additional content. I see a potential problem if a number cruncher (accounting) tells a suit (management).

Flip side, someone creates a mod that makes more people buy your game.

DayZ boosted Arma2 sales (and people bought the Arma2 DLC too because it was required for DayZ)
HalfLife had CounterStrike and TeamFortress (and many more)
Stalker, which was initially a bit flawed, become amazing with the user-created mods.
... that, and Bethesda's DLC sales haven't been that bad on PC.

So sales of the DLC won't really suffer that much. What does suffer are the sales of a sequel if it is released quickly. Hard to release a shooter annually when your playerbase isn't bored with the previous installment.

I agree that there are some games that benefit with the mods. And I am 100% about open PC gaming and love the additional content. But I have seen some games DLC more expensive than the original game. So I am just hoping they don’t close the openness of the PC. Hell I don’t know what I am complaining about. I own enough games that I haven’t played to keep me busy for several years (no BS).But I don't want the PC to become a console in that regard.
