Changing With the Times – How DLC has Affected Final Fantasy

DLC is perhaps the most defining aspect of this console generation; prior to the launch of the Xbox 360 you’d be hard-pressed to find any console gamer that even knew what the abbreviation stood for (Downloadable Content, for those of you living under a rock). Nowadays, however, it is implemented in one way or another into almost every major game that gets released - it has become so prevalent that the implementation of DLC is often one of the game’s most discussed features. Due to the obvious financial benefits, every major publisher wants DLC in their games in some form or another, and yes, that includes Square-Enix. In this article I shall be discussing the effects of DLC on the Final Fantasy series thus far as well as the potential impact it could have on the series going forward. (Final Fantasy, iPad, iPhone, PS3, Square Enix, Xbox 360)

As with all of Square-Enix's latest decisions, DLC has been a terrible idea. YAY FOR SELLING ENDINGS!

I remember when DLC actually added to the game, and it was a different, more fresh experience. Now it's nothing more than a cash-cow and an excuse to cut content from games to further profits; then whine later because no one wants to buy content that should have been there to begin with. Don't even get me started on this whole season pass BS.

DLC has been used for evil.
It used to sound like a good idea but now it's the last thing I want to hear from a developer.

Get this new skin for only $3.99!

Want some weapons taken out of the game? only $4.99!

You can now change the colour of your characters! $2.99!

Want to cheat and skip ahead of gamers online by unlocking everything right away? $6.99!

You bought the game secondhand? unlock part of the single player now for only $6.99!

Just bought a game brand new? don't forget to use all of the codes included in the case!

Here's some character packs blatantly taken out of the game! $5.99!

But don't forget guys "you can always not buy it herp derp"
